Win a Rough Guide of Your Choice at!

Darn Good Digs launched its 2nd Nominate-a-thon this weekend, and the travel website is giving away either a Rough Guide of your choice or the Rough Guide’s new Earth Bound photography book to two lucky winners.  Michael Gonchar, co-founder of Darn Good Digs, explains, “The entire concept behind our site is that budget-minded travelers nominate their all-time favorite places to stay, and our editors select the best of the best to post on”  Nominate your favorite digs or simply sign up for the quarterly newsletter and you have a chance to win the Rough Guide of your choice.  Which Rough Guide would you choose?


Rough Guide Earth Bound


Darn Good Digs was established in the summer of 2008 with the goal of creating a guide for budget-minded travelers to the best small hotels, guest houses, and bed & breakfasts around the world. After over a year online, the editors have put together an eclectic collection of independently owned hotels across the globe, all with rooms under US$150, even in the high season. Highlights include a family-run eco-safari in South Africa’s Madikwe National Park, an exotic fruit farm in northeastern Australia, and a hip, theme-roomed motel in the Catskill Mountains just a few hours from New York City.  Savvy travelers know about these hard-to-find places, and Darn Good Digs taps into this knowledge through its nomination process.

Michael notes: "We believe Wandering Educators is exactly the kind of travel community that would appreciate our collection of amazing accommodations.  We also know that W.E. readers and contributors have stayed at some pretty cool places over the years, so we hope you will visit us at Darn Good Digs and nominate your favorite digs today!"
