Welcome back! Just following up as requested to again extend the invitation that you consider taking and writing about an Esotouric bus adventure. Our upcoming schedule includes a mix of true crime, literary and architectural tours. Check us out at http://www.esotouric.com
I'd like to extend an invitation to you to think about taking and writing about one of our Esotouric bus adventures, which roll most Saturdays out of Downtown LA and offer a unique historical perspective on the city through the lenses of social history, true crime, architecture, spirituality and rock and roll. Check us out some time at http://www.esotouric.com
Good afternoon, Terry, 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, we recommend you take a moment to join several of our many groups which you may find of particular use, such as Media Only, Hawaii, California, New Zealand, Italy, Turkey, Alaska, New York State, Massachusetts, Bonaire, Bahamas, Belize, Germany, France, China, Australia, Eating/Drinking the World, Travel Products, Online Corner, Travel Apps for iPhone, Pets on the Go, 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 travels, your writing/outlets, and more.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and audience. 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 can cover us in any of your outlets, we'd of course be grateful, link exchange is welcome, and if you feel you might want to occasionally blog for us, rates/guidelines are available upon request. Finally, please join our Facebook fan page and follow us on Twitter (see front page info box); we'll be happy to reciprocate!
Thanks much for joining us; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2010, and it goes without saying that we look forward to seeing you online.
