Lets face it, its tough to find one spot to go to find a bunch of great travel topics and deals. I'm not that impressed with the travel sections of the main stay internet providers, although I do fidn some great stuff there. Thats why I do try and evolve at times and throw up something like this with my opinions of places or websites and have documented some of that in my researching page. I liek to share with you not only all the deals I post, but places I like to resaerch or read about travel.
I get the Seattle times every Sunday. First of all, my wife is a couponer so we have to have a Sunday paper and the Seattle times usually has great rates. Don't quote me, but I think we pay about a 1.00 or 1.25 per week which includes the online access which is a great deal. We started with a groupon deal and then when that expired my wife just called in and they gave her I think about the same deal. I admit I should get the Tacoma News Tribune, especially since my buddy works for them, but I just cant find a deal thats worth it. They want more than 3.00 per week (3.12 a week) including internet access. I just cant believe they want over 3.00 for one newspaper. Don't forget you can buy them for 1.00 at the dollar store and many times Fred Meyer runs deals for 1.00 too.
So Seattle times is my choice. Yes, I will admit I dont care for the owners and their pro Mariner/anti Sonics views, but for travel and coupons did does the trick at the right price!
And today is no different with lots of great articles. Many of these are picked up from other papers and sources, but its not about re inventing the wheel. They also have some local writers which provide great tips as well as blog about travel.
Cruises: A great article on the true costs of cruising and how that 299.00 cruise deal can cost you well into the thousands. Nothing wrong with being frugal and I love that this article shows both sides. I kind of fall into the writers view. I don't consider myself a cruise guy. I would go on one to blog about it or maybe as a family group trip, but I don't think its my cup of tea.
