Those thinking of travelling to India might consider buying my next India travel book which is now available on Amazon. The book is called, "Essential India Travel Guide: Travel Tips And Practical Information" and solves the problems faced by foreign travellers to India.

An apology: I misstated the date of the tweetchat about Guadeloupe on some of the invitations sent out yesterday. The tweetchat, #RecGuad, concerns the hottest destination in the Caribbean (up 23% in 2013), and it will be today, Tuesday, at 2 pm.. I hope you can make it. For corrected invitation see

Those travelling to India to seek spirituality would be happy to know that I have published a new book on Hinduism. Its designed for children but it can even be used by those who wants to learn Hinduism including those who are travelling to India. Its available on all Amazon stores. http://www.amazon.com/Hinduism-For-Kids-Beliefs-Practices-ebook/dp/...

Trevor, I go to the islands a lot -- maybe twice a month -- but those islands tend to be Caribbean islands, so I've never been to Iceland. Maybe next year. Meanwhile, I found your "Was it worth it?" paragraph pretty interesting. I mean, there's an awful (yes, awful) lot of cheerleading in the travel writing profession, if it is a profession. Your comments are refreshingly frank.

Comment by Trevor Claringbold on October 8, 2013 at 6:11pm

Ed, within Europe we are mostly quite fortunate with the tourist boards - and Iceland is no different. If you have a reason to visit, and can offer a decent commission or placement for your scribbles in return, they will usually try and pull something together for individual trips. In some cases they will come back with a full plan, including hotel, transfers, even excursions. Others will act more as intermediaries - suggesting hotels and restaurants to contact who are likely to offer a free media visit. The latter was the case with Iceland, but it was a few simple emails to follow up these leads, and we had hotel, two restaurants, and a 'Golden Circle' tour from it. Flights were courtesy of EasyJet, again in return for a mention and link in the article - but to be fair the flights were budget anyway from here.

Was it worth it? Yes, I would say so. For me, Iceland was one of those places that was interesting, worthwhile and enlightening to see once, but once you've seen it, I probably wouldn't feel the need to see it again.

Good luck!
