With A Little Help From Our (Internet) Friends July 7th, 2011 • by Beth Poulin Arrival in the Kingdom of Bhutan It happens to everybody, even those of us who live, breathe, eat, and dream the travel industry – when faced with the question “how long does it take to get there?” we can freeze like the proverbial fawn in high beams. Time zones, time differences, flight directions, date lines, layovers – all of these factors can contribute to the length of a journey, and sometimes as adventurers we are more easily enthralled with the whimsy and rewards of a destination rather than the details on how to get there. Deborah Tobey, a fellow Destination Manager here at Boundless Journeys, has discovered an internet gem in assisting with the logistical questions that may not be heavy on the glamour, but still reign supreme in the planning. www.travelmath.com can help you with the numerical and mathematical conundrums associated with international travel (just in case you don’t have the World Time Zone Index memorized or aren’t able to guestimate the travel time between LAX and BKK). Remember that whimsy I mentioned? Its easy to get excited about ziplining in Costa Rica, game viewing in Botswana, or trekking in Peru, but all of these experiences still require crossed t’s and dotted i’s in terms of travel planning. This is why Boundless Journeys is always happy to help supply you with tools to ensure a seamless adventure from door to door, whether it be our own expertise or a helpful external resource.
