Welcome to the second Travel on a Shoestring Carnival for South America, Africa, and the Middle East. Here you’ll find South American, African, and Middle Eastern (and Antarctic!) travel tips for those without a lot of money to spend.
A meagre turnout of quality posts this week means I’ve only got two articles to share on these fascinating areas of the globe. Have you shoestring travelers really nothing to write about these areas???
Norie Quintos of Intelligent Travel writes about rescheduling or postponing travel in the wake of political or social violence in her post Travel to Kenya, Despite Unrest. Norie outlines experienced advice for negotiating with your tour operators and making sure your travel insurance will cover you in such situations.
Those headed to Chile shouldn’t miss AJ Block‘s post Using Public Transportation in Santiago at Santiago Tourist. His post thoroughly details the changes to the transportation system since February 2007.
If you’d like to see your post on budget travel in South America, Africa or the Middle East in this carnival, submit using the online form found here. Readers, encourage your favorite regional bloggers to submit posts for next month! Our next carnival will be posted February 2, when we return to Europe. You can submit your posts for that carnival here.
