Beach Channel Graduate Edits ‘Let’s Go: Ireland’

David Bight, a 1998 graduate of Beach Channel High School and a native of Ireland, is the new Editor of Let’s Go: Ireland 2003 at Let’s Go Publications. Previously at Let’s Go, he has been a Researcher-Writer for let’s Go: South Africa 2002 and an Associate Editor for Let’s Go: Italy 2002.

David is a senior at Harvard University concentrating in Government with a focus of international relations, war and terrorism. In addition to working at Let’s Go, he has been involved in the Harvard Homeless Shelter, Prisoner Education, and Mission Hill Student education. His other interests include traveling and the sport of hurling. After college, he plans to travel on a fellowship from Cape Town, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt, and eventually attend graduate or professional school.

What is Let’s Go? Researched, written and edited entirely by students, Let’s Go is the world’s best-selling budget travel guide series. It started in 1960 as a 20-page mimeographed pamphlet that a handful of well-traveled students at Harvard University handed out, offering a collection of tips on budget travel to passengers on student charter flights to Europe.

In the last 20 years, Let’s Go researchers have stretched the frontiers of backpacking and expanded our coverage across six continents. Today, annual teams of 300+ editors and researchers produce 67 titles, and Let’s Go: Europe reigns as the world’s best-selling international travel guide. Nevertheless, the teams are proud of their origins, and they still hold true to their founders’ goal of providing student-written, up-to-date guides for traveling on a budget.
