What I've Learned in 25 Years on The Vacation Road Less Traveled
By Mike Thiel

Sit back, relax, and take in these 25 tips written by Hideaways Founder, Mike Thiel, in 2004 to celebrate Hideaways International's 25 years of discovering the vacation road less traveled. For someone who grew up traveling, it only makes sense that Mike has made a career of it and is sharing his lifelong advice with others.

Some tips might not be new to you (travel light!), others are rather unexpected (sporting vacations are among the most relaxing.) Before you begin planning your next vacation (choose your travel companions carefully), read these tips to ensure a more successful (real travelers are flexible) getaway. Learn the importance of going "local," having the right attitude, and how to truly relax once you've arrived. From choosing a restaurant or hotel to picture-taking and bargaining, you'll be ready to take on the world!
