Share Article

Baby boomer e-zine, http://www.watchboom.com offers news in finance, health, and their specialty-section, travel.

The new issue of http://www.WatchBoom.com released Oct. 1 to more than 105,000 readers worldwide. The online e-publication, now in its second year, features specialty travel locations that have certain appeal to the Baby Boomer generation, people ages 46 to 64.

Free to readers, http://www.WatchBoom.com’s October issue highlights Macau, Mexico, Wales and Berlin. Renown writers include Dawna Robertson, Robert Jenkins, Jimm Budd, Danielle Yuthas, and WatchBoom.com Travel Editor Bob Schulman.

Bob Schulman says “I used to be an airline bum...you know, like a ski bum who moves around from one bunch of snowy slopes to another.” Only instead of schussing down the triple blacks, Bob zipped around the friendly skies “for more decades than I'd like to remember” as a public relations executive for seven airlines. He most recently was a co-founder and vice president-corporate communications for Denver-based Frontier Airlines, from which he retired a few years ago to begin a second career as a freelance travel writer. His articles have appeared in more than two dozen magazines, newspapers and websites.

He is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers and the Mexico Writers Alliance.

In the October issue of http://www.WatchBoom.com, Schulman reveals travel tips that can get you to the front of the line every time.

Visit passrider.com (a site used by airline employees to help plan their trips) and simply enter the city you're flying from, your destination and the day you're leaving. A screen will come up showing uncluttered, one-line listings of all the flights between the cities you entered, their routings (including connections, if any) and how long they take. Once you've picked the most convenient flights you can start checking fares on the websites of the listed carriers. Speed up the process by entering the International Air Transport Association's three-letter codes for each airport. If you don't know the codes, you can find them on iata-airport-code.com.
