Good evening, Doug, and welcome to Tripatini! Great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of us, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Media Only, Canada, United Kingdom, India. Eating/Drinking the World, our French and Spanish language/culture clubs, and plenty of others covering many topics and most destinations throughout the world.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, and your writing and editing.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and readers. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!). And if you have any opportunity to cover us in any of your outlets, that would of course be most appreciated.
Thanks for joining us, Doug; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
