Is Technology Ruining Your Travel Experience? With Seth Kugel

What kind of travel tools are in your arsenal?

How can you use these tools to enhance your travel experience?

My guest today, author and travel journalist Seth Kugel can help.

For six years he roamed the planet for the New York Times as the “Frugal Traveler” offering tips on how to tackle some of the world’s greatest destinations on a budget.

His new book, Rediscovering Travel: A Guide for the Globally Curious, aims to “reignite humanity’s age-old sense of adventure that has virtually been vanquished by the spontaneity-obliterating likes of Google Maps, TripAdvisor, and Starwood points.”
