I went to Zante once the turtles were amazing. One city that I have seen change immensely is Dubai. Alot talk about Goa changing but I've never been..
I am down as 2004 but I am pretty sure that is just from the present site as we had to rejoin.
I went back to look at my oldest surviving post and found a trip report to Singapore. Brought back memories !
Back then most of my holidays were longhaul and lots of members travelled to the far east and even further and there were many interesting discussions about hotels and resorts. Some members would write trip resorts which would often whet my appetite and I would soon find myself researching flights and places to visit in these destinations.
Recently though I've been taking my holidays in short or occasionally medium haul destinations often Greece in particularl Crete as the hassle of major airports and boredom of long flights has put me off going further afield.
I'll never say never for another long haul trip but at the moment I'm enjoying my holidays within Europe.
I wasn't very internet savvy at the time though & the link lead to the hotel review main page.
At the time, over the HT logo, if you moved your curser across it made a rippling sound & movement as though you were caressing a pool of water. I loved it 💖 ........
Clicking around on the home page I eventually stumbled into the forums. It was like I'd discovered a secret world!!! Was there for hours upon hours a day 😂
I was registered under a different name (Intervoice) and was looking back at some of my old reviews the other day.
I'm also on TA but these days TA is full of "rate my itinerary" posts which I hate.
This site is good but does need more traffic.
after many trips by coach and plane, I used the train to get here last November when I finally moved over here.
currently sitting in my lounge, overlooking the beach with the windows open and the sun shining:)
only thing I miss is the ability to buy shoes that fit, but I have had some delivered to a friend back home who will bring them with him when he comes over soon.
