Good morning, Asli, and welcome to Tripatini! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, you may want to take a moment to join several other of our many groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Media Only, Turkey, The Caribbean, India, Brazil, Spain, Cuba, Eating/Drinking the World, our Spanish and French language/culture clubs, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, and your work.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and readers/listeners/viewers. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!). If you have the opportunity to cover us in any of your outlets, that would of course be great, and if you might be interested in occasionally blogging for us as well, guidelines/rates are available upon request.
Thanks much for joining us, Asli; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
