Good afternoon, Judith, 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 other groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Turkey, Family Travel, Wine Tourism, Eating/Drinking the World, Adventure Travel, Eco/Sustainable Tourism, Luxury Travel, Beach-Bumming, Spiritual Journeys, our French language/culture club, 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 business (if it has a name, please feel free to mention in your profile).
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 of course if you'd like to consider occasionally blogging for us (guidelines/rates available upon request), that would of course be great.
Thanks for joining us, Judith; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
