Be a smarter traveler
My latest book, How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler (And Save Time, Money and Hassle) is the instruction manual for your next trip.
It’s full of actionable advice, lists and answers to the most common and most perplexing travel questions. I break through the frustration of every imaginable aspect of a trip at each step of the way.
The book shows you how to save time and money and prevent hassles. I share my favorite shortcuts, tips on where bargains can be had (and which offers are too good to be true) and ways to avoid being harassed by such travel irritants as onerous contracts or aggressive timeshare salespeople.
