Travel Tip

Ok, let me see, a travel writers is a person who travel and writes, often I find they do not travel, but that is another story.
“When is a Travel Writer worthless in my opinion?”

Simple, when they refuse to say or explain the price, I truly lose all trust or faith in their opinion; I feel they are trying to maneuver me into buy an expensive tour. Money and travel are connected at the hip, it is impossible to disconnect.

Does the Lonely Planet Guidebook tell me the prices?

Does the Rough Guide tell me the prices?
Does Footprints Guidebooks tell me the prices?
Yes, yes and more yes.

There is a reason they sell many guidebooks, because they accept there is a connection between the word travel and the price.

Thank You!

I was watching some travel show about Indian food and it showed the guy travelling all over India trying all kinds of interesting stuff. He mentioned it was affordable. Why couldnt he just tell the prices?

I hate how money is a taboo subject in our culture.

I would argue that travel writers are useless when they only review hotels and services well beyond the reach of most of us. They don't put the price because they don't need to ask the price they are paid to travel to somewhere for five minutes, file ten stories and send the expense chit into accounts.
