    "When you are travelling, sometimes a hotel is difficult to find or book, or perhaps it isn't near the locations you want to be. Airbnb allows you to not only choose a relative location, but removes some of the distance/market from you while you travel."

    "I tried Kayak Flights to try and set up a search for some flights. This app will let you put the dates in, but bypass the dates you want, which makes it useless. I can't save my settings, I have to add my info for every search. The website is great, but the app stinks. It was very useful to find cheap flights, so I would use that again, but I would use the website itself if I want to book"

    "Skysanner is a decent app for planning flights and travel but it's lacking in some detail. The search functions don't often allow you to limt to what you'd like and some people may find the interface clunky. It's not bad just not great"

    "I was told to get this book prior to going on a trip with my friends. Found it at a yard sale. I don't understand why I was told to get this book. It's interesting but is based on Thor Heyerdahl and his historical travels. Incredibly boring book. I was hoping I would be able to get a solution on best ways to save money abroad or anything related to having a better trip in general. Interesting book if you like history and autobiographies but doesn't have much traveling tips for the modern day adventurer. "
