It may seem easy, but before you take a break, pick up a good travel book about your destination. Travel books can help ensure you get the most out of your vacation. Take a look at the hotel section from

You book your room to make sure you don't have to pay the highest fees, or make sure that the hotel and price you decide is really worth it.
This applies to European travel books as well as specific holiday books, such as the travel guide for Lanzarote. "Lonely Planet" books are good, but I prefer the DK travel books in the series. These maps are easy to read and the text is simple and practical. They contain pictures and suggestions about what to see and where to eat. The DK book I am now at the bedside is suitable for the entire Canary Islands, not just the Lanzarote holiday. I also like it because although I jumped to other islands, I didn't spend too much time on other islands. Learn about the special handicrafts on other islands, or learn about this great restaurant or wine cellar.
No matter what the book on the bed is, you know you need the basics. You need to know the best accommodation, shopping, and eating places. You need to know what the weather is and when you can get the best deals and the best weather. You need to know which museums are necessary and which are bankrupt. All the best travel books have a “Travel with Kids” section. Look for big, clear maps, and if you fold them up, it's even better.
Depending on the size of the book, the price of the new book is between $10 and $20. If you want to bargain, please check it online. You can buy second-hand travel books online, usually saving 50% or more. Most travel books are published in the spring, and April is the most popular month, so if you travel in the spring, you may need to adapt to last year's travel guide. In fact, for less popular places [such as Lanzarote], you will be fortunate to get a new guide every 3 or 4 years. Of course, some things will change, but the basics of museums and attractions will remain stable. The bar touted in the book may no longer exist, but what is the adventure without a little adventure?
