From dhamm: "I have used the site many times when traveling, but they didn't have anything for the Cayman Islands when I wanted to go. I e-mailed the site, and, lo and behold, I get a message from Roger Cox telling me what he knows and giving me ideas for tennis while on the island. I played at the Cayman Island Tennis Club while renting a home there and really appreciate his personal help in leading me to the club."
From captb: "We just returned from 10 days in London and met a British pensioner who has a passion for British traditional ceremonies. We wish to share with everyone his in-depth info regarding the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and tips for viewing."
From Kim Harty: "I know a passport is not required for US citizens vacationing in the Bahamas but the Frommer's Travel Guide says they 'strongly suggest' having one any way. Has anyone has any problems with just having a birth certificate? My husband has one but I don't and because of the cost I don't want to get one unless it truly is a good idea.
From Dawn: "Early last year I posted a question to this board regarding anyone who could review InkaNatura Travel and no one was able to review them.

From Tom Dean: "Forget whatever the naysayer mythmaker discontents say and go to France! Wifey and I were there for 11 days. Paris, Mont St. Michel, the Loire Valley. Spent few days in beautiful Paris (my 3rd visit there) and then rented a car and drove off to Normandy. Mont St Michel is not nicknamed the 'Marvel of the Western World' for no reason, you know? We stayed on the Mont for the night. Next we drove to Amboise, Loire Valley and checked in at a Gites de France. Good location and visited all the chateaux. People are very nice in France. Met lots of Americans, French, Germans, Austrians and Japanese. I speak conversational French, and it really, really helps with many many things but it's not totally necessary. Just learn some basic phrases and memorize them and all doors will be opened for you. They understand and appreciate your effort! J'aimerai toujours la France! Au revoir!"
