Tagline: Travel smarter
The travel smarter tagline is apt: there are some incredibly clever tips for using science to solve common travel problems and travellers with laptops and other electronic gear will benefit from the author’s advanced computer literacy. That said, this is by no means a travel website just for geeks. It can take some time to realise you are actually learning something outside of travel but by then it is too late – you’re sucked in and happy to be so.
