Friday Freebie: In Your Pocket Guides

Since 1991, the In Your Pocket team has been working to create useful guides for (what were then) out-of-the-way places; now that Tallinn and Riga are popular destinations, they’ve nonetheless continued to cover ignored places like Zakopane, Gelsenkirchen, Sopot and Siauliai. You’ll find their guides focus largely on Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. They’ve expanded quite a bit since releasing their first guide for Vilnius — now as far as Germany and Northern Ireland.

What’s great is you can download their PDF guides for free before arriving at your intended destination. While my guidebook usually covers a lot of the same touristy information, I find them a great source for up-to-date restaurant information. As locals, they generally have a little more time to outline the pluses and minuses of accommodations as well. And sometimes they cover information on transportation or what have you that guidebooks seem to simply ignore.

All in all, a good read and worthy of a Friday salute!
