Want to free yourself from the tyranny of group tours? Do your own thing when you travel! People wax poetic about the way the Internet has let travelers search out the cheapest travel, but the ‘Net’s impact goes far beyond prices. Time was, if you wanted to see the world — and you .../ ➝

Sometimes, you travel to meet people. Even people who died before you were born. I never met my grandfather. My mother told me he was a merchant seaman who called New Orleans home.
