G4T #32: Sensing Places Through Experiemental and Mis-Guide(d) Tourism

This is a Geography for Travelers Podcast related post (click on the title above to download the .mp3 file)

Today's podcast starts off with some geography and tourism news items, including plans for a borderless East Africa, the Global Tourism Intervention Forum, 2005 hurricane names being retired, and the April 18, 1906 San Francisco earthquake anniversay. I then focus the discussion on a review of the newly published A Mis-Guide to Anywhere, which is a guidebook to experiemental tourism. I finally talk about how experiemental tourism relates to academic tourism studies of how travelers "sense" the places that they visit.
