On which destinations & travel topics can you advise members especially well?
Hello, Nancy, and welcome to go-lo! It's wonderful to have a travel journalist of your background and experience with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
You may want to consider taking a few minutes to join several other of our many groups which you might find of particular interest besides Travel Media Only and California, such as Alaska, Norway, Bhutan, Eating/Drinking the World, and various others covering myriad topics as well as destinations in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and beyond.
FYI, you may also add an info box to your profile that includes text, photos, and even video about yourself and your work.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, and colleagues. For example, it's quick and easy to use to our "Invite" function above left on the navigation bar to send direct invites to any e-mails (or even your whole list!).
We wish you a great rest of the summer, and look forward to hearing more from you...
