Additional Links and Class Questions:

  • A visitor to the first class mentioned that Google now also has a product very similar to TripIt.  It is called Google Trips.  Google describes this free service as follows:
    • Google Trips makes it easier than ever to plan and organize your trips. It automatically maps out a half day or a full day with suggestions for things to see and do. Don’t like what you see? Tap the “magic wand” to see more nearby sights. Each tap of the wand gives you a fresh set of nearby attractions.

  • Another class member asked about other resources for finding discounted flight deals.  There are several blogs and sites that try and post popular flight deals.  One that I have had a good experience using is called Scott’s Cheap Flights.  This is a free email newsletter that gives alerts for cheap international flights.  There is a paid and free version of the newsletter and it provides flight deals as they become available to destinations across the globe.
  • To request travel books from the library using inter-library loan please click here for detailed instructions.
