Planning a Round-the-World Trip – Book Excerpt #2

December 17, 2012

I have a healthy distrust for anything on the Internet. It’s one of the reasons I have snopes.com bookmarked. It’s also one of the reasons I have a Mac. I have been sent every warning, every fake Andy Rooney transcript, and every offer of a magical coupon that will suddenly appear on my screen if I just forward an email to ten other people. So as I mentioned, I tend to research. And research. And research.

It’s amazing how if you do enough travel research, you’ll eventually find the right deal, while knowingly tossing the ones that seem too good to be true. They are. (Word of advice: If there is a free trip to Hawaii involved, run!)

Yes, it is true that they say time is money, and you’ll spend a lot of time researching. But really, there are worse things you can do with your time than looking to see if visiting Hong Kong before Bangkok would be cheaper and have better flight times than the other way around. Trust me, you will receive no pity from anyone over this conundrum.
