BBC loses on Lonely Planet

The BBC have lost a huge sum of money buying out and subsequently ruining the Lonely Planet brand.

Lonely planet make travel guides that are some of the most used in the world. In fact it seems like every other backpacker in SE Asia has a lonely planet book.

The blame for the massive loss has been placed on the strong Aussie dollar compared to the USD/GBP and EUR.

If you are travelling abroad then ensure you have taken out decent travel insurance over 85s  in case you have a medical emergency.
