February 9, 2023 (San Diego) - Dr. Mary Travelbest’s guide book is full of tips and on the road recommendations. She helps you to get the best deals, pack light, and ensure your safety. She takes you through stages to develop a level of comfort with less and less structure. I’m still on stage one, but I now have the yen to plan a short trip.
This book is a must for newbie travelers and an inspiration for solo travel. Travelbest is a professor of marketing at Point Loma Nazarene University, founder of Sun Marketing Media and Advertising, a resident of San Diego and a member of the San Diego Writers & Editors Guild.
