In 1996, I backpacked throughout Europe by myself for two months, on a budget of just $50 a day. It was an exhilarating, remarkable journey: My Grand Tour. Being on a tight budget (so I could keep traveling until my last penny ran out!), I rarely had the luxury of a guide explaining to me what I was looking at. I depended on Lonely Planet and Let’s Go travel books to fill me in. Now, after having worked with local guides like Marco at sites like Valley of the Temples, pictured, my travel experience has been heightened and my intellect stimulated even more.
