What do you go for? I usually enjoy attending some seminars and speaking to some experts about particular countries I'd like to visit. They always have plenty of catalogs with pics and itineraries to help you with your planning. A year before my Australia trip I picked the brains of some exhibitors on places to fly into and how best to allocate my time. This year I wont make it — i'll be hanging out at a desert resort spending my Hyatt Free Night certificates.
