I had an article published in a travel magazine called Travel Smart. OK I cheated, the editor is a friend of my mother and Nancy was my first employer.

If you ever have travel tips you want to send, the email address is [email protected]

I might be able to write something about this site.

Yay Mike! Congrats - but it is nothing I wouldn't expect from our published author !! *round of applause and cheers*. ;-)

I have a number of half-finished travel books (not 'educational', more 'our adventures in...') on the computer - e.g. when we travelled all round Turkey, (incl when we drove through a tomato growing region and little boys stood at the side of the road throwing tomatoes in front of you so you would drive over them!!) and another when we toured Kathmandu, India, Maldives and Dubai.

One day I'll get down to work and finish them!! *yawn*
I kept a diary every day in both the above journeys (and others) so the materials there it's just making the effort lol!

Hope Elaine is ok. Send my best wishes.
