I’ve been travelling quite a bit in recent years, mostly on behalf of Citizens Foundation, spreading democracy and telling people about our work on improving democracy. In that process I’ve learned quite a bit on how to plan trips in a cheap and (somewhat) easy way.
Those of you who travel might find those links useful:
My favorite travel planning links. Some of those you probably use already (GMaps and AirBnB) and some have more useful links…
And the tab.bz extension that services the link above is a really useful one for getting lots of links to other people (and yourself) in a simple way, highly reccomended.
