Here follows one of my rants about the travel writing establishment:

In Defense of Traveling ON the Beaten Path

Any thoughts? Agreements? Disagreements? Favorite on-the-beaten-path destinations?

Largely I agree with you. Traveling to Europe I enjoyed getting off the beaten path because the big attractions tend to be surrounded by entrenched tourist crappola where the hotels and services were overpriced and over used. I was constantly surprised how often the food was better and the crush off people was lessened by getting away from the center of attention. In the states I will admit that having some minimum standards is wise.

I liked it. And agree.
