We live in the golden age of travel. Never have so many world destinations been more accessible and more affordable.
Budget-minded travellers can find affordable alternatives to hotels through internet-based services, like VRBO and AirBnB. Uber and Lyft have cut the price of ground transportation. And discount airlines are putting airfare to distant destinations within reach of more people.
For those with larger sums of disposable income, the luxury choices are more tantalizing than ever.
With the ever-expanding circle of destinations, travellers need to be savvy about how best to spend their time and hard-earned vacation money. That’s what our new website – Travel Like This – is all about.
Travel Like This is edited by Lisa Monforton, a nationally known travel writer and editor with decades of experience in print and online.
‘There’s a lot of noise out there. That’s why people need information they can trust,” says Monforton.
Our philosophy is simple: Don’t plan your travel to the minute, be sure to leave time for getting lost, put down your tech and live in the moment.
Our correspondents will provide great tips on both must-see attractions and local secrets. Find out where to sample the best food. Learn about the latest new gear. And, equally important, learn how to avoid common mistakes that could spoil your vacation.
We want you to see and taste and smell the best places right here in Canada, and around the world.
And we invite your comments and suggestions. Please write to: email@example.com.
