Nobody Goes to Those Countries Guidebook I was spoiled, I started my travels in Central and South America, a person could pick up a used guidebook for pennies. Khao San Road here in Bangkok, has a huge selection, however my selection of countries has changed, I am going off the path farther, plus BKK is expensive for books.
I have been asking for Guidebooks in Bangkok, They say, “NO HAVE.”
Thai people say this with a nasty twang, like “Hey Farang, why are you bothering me….?”
Ok, I was looking around for Papua New Guinea Guides, impossible, I was hoping to find Oceania, not a good prospect,
(Does everyone go ONLY to Australia, this country is surrounded by other countries?)
I change my travel mind path, I am now going North to Japan and Korea… Hard to find Japan, I found one, they want a small fortune for a two week trip, I do not collect guidebooks, I dump them, I sell them, I lose them… I also use them…
I have been checking out the Lonely Planet buy by the Chapter PDF files, this is going to save me a lot of money. I purchased the one chapter on the area of Pucallpa, Peru, this worked out fine. I am not looking at one or two areas in Japan and the same for Korea. It looks like this will cost me about 12 dollars instead of the 50 U.S. for USED books, a true saving.
Working out good Lonely Planet, now if you would just continue to update your books and stop spinning off others, update please.
Ok, Lonely Planet, send me cash, send me a guidebook, or better yet, update your books. I mean, I want more hotels and cheaper ones, I am a traveler, not a flashpacker, I do not need more Facts, Wikipedia.org is doing much better, Thanks, Please.
