Photocopy Travel Guides

Instead of dropping a third of a hundred dollars on a heavy, often useless, and misleading travel guide, there is a good alternative:

Photocopy sections of the guidebook that you want and forget about the rest.

Finding travel guides are easy: all you have to do is walk into a public library, a hostel, a hotel, or find another traveler that has one. Travel guides are everywhere. So you just have to find one, borrow it, take it to a copy machine, and you get the sections that you want for a fraction of the cost of the original. These scraps of guides are also fully disposable, as you only have to throw the pages away after you have used up the information that is printed on them.

Photocopying pages from travel guides is also one way that you can put together a defacto travel notebook that is full of relevant information that you print off of the internet, write down, or copy.

    many guidebooks are available as torrents in pdf format. handy for those that travel with netbooks or for those who want to print off particular chapters or sections.
