What destinations are you most interested in learning about?
Good morning, Karen, and a hearty welcome to Go-Lo! It's wonderful 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 Go-Lo, you may want to also take a few minutes to join several of our many groups which you might find of particular interest, such as Media Only, New York State, Canada, New Mexico, Peru, Indonesia, Mexico, Eating/Drinking the World, Wine Tourism, Honeymoons/Weddings, Shopping the World, our French Language/Culture Club, Airfares/Air Travel, and various others covering many topics and most other destinations throughout the world.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a blue 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, and your writing (and if you have occasion to cover Go-Lo in any of your outlets, we'd me most grateful!).
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, and colleagues. 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!).
We wish you the best of luck over the rest of 2009 and beyond, both personally and professionally, and look forward to hearing much more from you...
