Having captivated millions during his tenure as The New York Times's "Frugal Traveler", Seth Kugel is one of our most internationally beloved travel writers. With the initial publication of Rediscovering Travel, he took the corporate modern travel industry to task, determined to reignite an age-old sense of adventure that has virtually been vanquished by the spontaneity-obliterating likes of Google Maps, TripAdvisor and Starwood points. Now in travel-friendly paperback, this "funny, inspiring and well-crafted" companion (Associated Press) reveals how to make the most of new apps and other digital technologies without being shackled to them. Writing for the tight-belted tourists and the first-class flyer, the eager student and the comfort-seeking retiree, Kugel shows all readers "not only where to look, but how" (Samantha Brown) and promises that we too can rediscover the joy of discovery.
Seth Kugel, the New York Times's "Frugal Traveler" from 2010 to 2016, has appeared on CBS This Morning, NPR, and BBC Travel. He hosts the hit YouTube channel "Amigo Gringo," which has been profiled in The New Yorker, and lives in New York.
