"World Travel In Troubled Economic Times"
I'll be speaking at Get Lost Travel Books in San Francisco on Thursday evening, January 22nd, on "World Travel In Troubled Economic Times":
Jump-start your next international journey with this talk by Edward Hasbrouck author of "The Practical Nomad". Back in San Francisco after a 13 month, 6 continent, 80,000 mile trip around the world and the release of the 4th edition of his acclaimed book, Edward will present tips and advice about travel in the current economic climate: Is this a good time to travel? (Surprisingly, YES!) How will Obama's election change the reception for U.S. travelers? What are the key decisions that will most influence your travel budget? What are the places where Americans can still afford to travel (and which are now more affordable than ever)? How can you travel comfortably and enjoyably on a budget - even in expensive parts of the world? How can you find places that are off the beaten path, and what are some of the top destination recommendations from Edward's recent trip? Come on down and find out.
My talk starts at 7 p.m. But the space is small, so get there early to check out the store (San Francisco's only specialized travel bookstore) and stock up on books, maps, and gear for your next trip. Get Lost is at 1825 Market St. , on the south side of Market between Guerrero and Valencia. It's on the F-Market streetcar, 4 blocks east of the Church St. Muni Metro station, or 15 minutes walk from the 16th/Mission BART station.
As usual, my full schedule of coming events is here .Link | Posted by Edward on Thursday, 8 January 2009, 07:20 ( 7:20 AM) | TrackBack (0)
