Good morning, Victor, 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 of our many groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Media Only, Maryland, Bahamas, China, various African destinations, Antarctica, Museum Mavens, Eco/Sustainable Tourism, Travel Photography, Eating/Drinking the World, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across the USA, Europe, Asia, and the rest of 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, 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 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!).

Thanks much for joining us; we wish you a great rest of the holiday season and an outstanding start to 2010, and of course we look forward to seeing you online.
