Losing the Crowds: The Advantages of Not Travelling in the High Season

 By Lori Sweet

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes


Photos that include the whole structure, leisurely people watching at the cafe, just you and the Mona Lisa. How does that sound?  What about lower airfare and accommodation costs? Sound too good to be true? These are many of the benefits of shoulder or off season travel.

Travel can be divided into 3 different seasons. Much of the time, peak or high season will be mid-June until August. Shoulder season will be April to mid-June and September and October. Off or low season will be November to March. It can differ slightly depending where in the world you are going, but this is the general rule of thumb.

Travel Tips and Tricks Round Two

 By Lori Sweet


There is so much information available about travel, it's hard to know which advice to follow. After my first list of tips and tricks was published, I received lots of messages with other great ideas from friends and travel writing colleagues. It was hard to narrow them to a manageable list but here it goes! Many thanks to Sylvio, Don, Wilma, Regina and Francine, for their suggestions.
