New York, (PRWEB) March 30, 2005
TrekShare LLC, the web's largest trip publishing resource, announces the launch of The Citizen (citizen.trekshare.com). The Citizen is a unique travel guidebook written for the anti-tourist. Citizen guidebooks are written by locals, and marketed to backpackers wishing to explore a city's darker scene. While other more traditional guidebooks favor tourist attractions, theCitizen focuses on the exploration of a city from the citizenÂs perspective.
ÂThe Citizen looks to serve a completely untouched market segment in the travel publication industry. There are hundreds of guidebooks focusing on over-priced restaurants, tourist attractions, and 5 star hotels. The Citizen focuses on the backpacker that barely has enough money to stay at a hostel. If you are looking to take a week off work to go to a dude ranch, theCitizen is not for you. If you lost your wallet last summer in a complicated scam ran by some junkie from Berlin, theCitizen might be for you. If you are that junkie from Berlin, welcome to theCitizen.Â Â Jeremy Ahrens co-Founder TrekShare LLC
In a related announcement, TrekShare LLC is searching for talented writers with a localÂs knowledge of a cityÂs stranger side. Authors must have lived in a city for a minimum of two years. The successful applicant will bring a unique voice to theCitizen while illuminating a cityÂs scene with clarity and volume. Go to citizen.trekshare.com to learn more.
