Just discovered the Independent Traveler blog on the ADN.com site. I'm also an ADN community blogger with my AK Tech Girl blog where I discuss topics around the intersection of life, work and technology.
Here's the blurb from blogger Gloria Maschmeyer's blog:
Love to travel, but hate tours? This blog offers insight on how to go it alone, from safe accommodations to seeing the best, and maybe the worst. After all, independent travel is an adventure. Flexibility and traveling on a budget are critical. No five-stars or all-inclusives. So hop aboard. Learn to enjoy travel at your own pace and price. Meet other adventurers like yourself and mingle with the locals. Remember: You may travel alone, but you wonʼt be lonely.
