  1. Thanks so much for this lead, I’ve been looking for something like this. I worked for an upstart travel guide book company back in 2003 and have travelled since but I have’t been paid for it!

    Also, I wanted to let you know I’ve nominated your blog for “Best Travel Blog” over at the Bloggers Choice Awards. If you check out the site they have some embed code for a badge which you can put here to rally your readership to vote for you. Best of luck and thanks again for the info.
