Hola, Johannes, and welcome! I think we may have a mutual friend, Pamela Ruiz, and I'm sure you must know Chris Baker, who's a member here. It's too bad, I was passing through Sarasota just this past weekend! Oh, well, I may be up there soon again -- and the next time you make it down to Miami, please give me a shout!
Good afternoon, Johannes, and welcome to Go-Lo! It's wonderful 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 the site, you may want to take a few minutes to join several of our many groups which you might find of particular interest, such as Media Only, Cuba, Hotels/Motels/B&Bs/Inns, Resorts Corner, Airfares/Air Travel, Eating/Drinking the World, Adventure Travel, Eco/Sustainable, and various others covering many topics and destinations throughout the world.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a blue 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, and your publication.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, and clients. For example, 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!).
We wish you a great rest of the summer, best of luck in 2009 and beyond, and look forward to hearing more from you... !
