“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”
The number and variety of resources available to help Fifty-Plus Nomads plan their adventures has expanded significantly in the ten years since I ran my travel seminar business. In 2009, social media was in its infancy, and travel blogs were much less common than today. Many of the ¨go-to¨ websites that I regularly consult today like Nomadic Matt and Johnny Jet did not exist.
While the amount of information has expanded, I often ask myself has the quality of travel information improved.
My answer is no. In fact, I would go so far as to say that the general level of travel-related resources was better ten years ago than today.
