Please think of Map Happy as a guide for travelers, but we’re not going to tell you what you should see or do.
TripAdvisor, Frommer’s and Lonely Planet have got that market covered as far as I’m concerned. We’re a bit more concerned about all the in-betweens, like making it from point A to B. Whether that’s learning how to smile your way through a shady neighborhood in a second-world country (though we might wonder what you’re doing there in the first place) or figuring out how to order a beer in four different languages.
Look at you, bicycling through the tulip blooms in Holland or shopping in Tokyo. You’ve got your mind on a whole bunch of things, I get it. Hopefully we can cut through the junk so you can go back to doing what you were doing originally: exploring. But if you’ve got some free time, check us out on some of the other places we’re hanging out on the intertubes.
All input, support and hate mail are greatly welcome, though not always without prejudice. Bon voyage!
