Lonely Planet Travel Guides are just made up!

Lonely Planet (one of the bigger publishers of travel guides) admitted to basically making stuff up. Not too surprising I guess. Really, the whole industry seems to have been under suspicion for a while, but still, this is pretty bad.

For more information, check out this link:

Oh well. I guess blogs are getting to be a better source of this sort of information, but the problem is, blogs are not organized in a way so someone could use them to prep for a trip. (There might be a business idea in that, actually).

PS: Yes, I haven't blogged in a while, but now I am back... expect more soon! (As well as a recap of what I have been up to in the last few months!).
