We’re going strong! In the last few months, almost 90 organizations have signed up who are all involved with Local Travel: guidebook publishers such as ourselves, tour guides, blogs and “voluntourism” organizations.
So far, 62 blog articles about Local Travel subjects have been published. A few that I really enjoyed:
- Is local interaction essential for Local Travel? – by John Nicholls
Interesting quote “…Interacting with locals beyond asking for directions and conversing at train stations is not an essential element of [most people’s] holidays“
- The travel industry’s dilemma – by Peter Stevenson
How can we bridge the gap between independent an organized group travel?
- How to make your vacations more meaningful? By Shadia Garrison
This article was also published on the Huffington Post!

An article that sparked a lot of discussion (22 comments!) about the safety of Local Accomodation networks
A few weeks ago, we added a forum functionality. Some interesting discussions are in progress already.
