Learn from the best who have generously shared their incredible world itineraries so you can avoid costly vacation mistakes!
Recently, I was out to dinner with dear friends who I hadn’t spent quality time with since before Spring Break. So, of course, we rehashed our vacations even though they feel now like a long time ago. He said that they went to Puerto Rico, tried a new hotel and didn’t love it. Without question, we don’t love every hotel we go to or even every vacation. However, it stinks to spend a ton of time and money and have an average time. It makes you want to stay in your comfort zone and stop trying anything new or unfamiliar. Don’t you wish you could hear advice from people like yourselves about the best places to visit? It is the same concept as the Find but applied to travel.
It all started three years ago when my family was traveling to Zimbabwe. At the very small airport we ran into the Yalofs, a very stylish New York family. They were one step ahead of us; their kids were a bit older, they looked relaxed like seasoned travelers, and they were very organized. Though we didn’t know them well, we were eager to pick their brains so we could do all the right things and not make any mistakes once there. A week ago, I learned that she joined forces with another incredible traveler to create Daytripper365. Coincidentally, we ran into her exceedingly well traveled partner Bonnie last year in Uruguay. It seems these well heeled travelers were keeping copious notes for one day they would generously share their incredible itineraries with the world via their website. They travel our way which includes incredible and authentic experiences in far away places. This should be your first stop if you want to dream up an incredible vacation. They are doing some pretty incredible things dictated by where their travels take them.
They just started a sister website called Daytripper University featuring college travel guides for students and families. All the tips you won't learn on the campus tour. They realized the need for information on what to see, where to go, what to eat, etc. on campus that's not on the school sponsored tour! After reading, it made me want to go back to school (a la Rodney Dangerfield).
