The Very Best Travel Tips and Tricks in the Past Month

Here are the best travel tips and tricks, the highlights of View from the Wing posts from September.

Last month I summarized the very best travel posts from September and the previous month, from August. In July the most useful and interesting developments from June.

I also wrote a post with the most useful advice I’ve given, overall.

It turns out, surprisingly, that this feature is really popular, at least judging by the emails I get — people that don’t read the blog every day really appreciated the recap and not having to dig through all of the posts to find the most enduring ones.

These are some that were my favorites from October. I hope you were happy with some of the posts and got something out of them as well.
