Good morning, Patricia, and welcome to Tripatini! 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 us, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many other groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Florida, History/Heritage, Archaeology, The Caribbean, Adventure Travel, Fiji, Brazil, USVI, BVI, Travel Photography, Hotels/Motels, Resorts Corner, Eating/Drinking the World, Beach-Bumming, our French and Portuguese language/culture clubs, and plenty of others covering many topics and most destinations throughout the world.
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 writing/outlets.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and readers. 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!). And if you can cover us in any of your outlets and would like to consider occasionally blogging for us (guidelines/rates available upon request), that would of course be great.
Thanks for joining us, Patricia; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
