Every year, we evaluate hundreds of wanderlust-inducing trips to produce a guide to the world's greatest adventures. This time around, we solicited the aid of a new contributor: you. (The democratic spirit is strong right now.) By the hundreds, you told us where you're planning to go and what matters most to you on any trip. You also made two things clear: (1) You have zero plans to stop exploring, recession be damned, but (2) that doesn't mean you'd object to saving some cash. Fair enough—turn the page and you'll find Trips of the Year that maximize value, plus dozens of strategies for the wallet-conscious nomad.
