    The very popular Asia-travel blog, Madness & Beauty has just published an interview they did with me last week. It covers some of the background of Travelfish along with a few thoughts on travel in general to the region. You can read the full interview here -- and if you're a keen travel blog reader, Madness & Beauty should be on your shortlist.

    Cheers!

    I hope this comes up on your recent comments lists.

    I have a technical question. How was the interveiw conducted? Did she email questions and you replied? The tone of the questions and answers suggests the spoken word. There are people I'd like to interveiw.

    Interview was by email -- which suits me perfectly as I'm a serial grunter, ummmer and ahher and tend also to let my mouth outrun my brain (generally not a overly challenging task).

    You want to interview people online or face to face? Mrs Travelfish is a journo, & can give more advice if you give some more info on what you're after.

    Online. I refuse to travel anymore without the whole clan at least being in country, and most folks I'd like to interveiw are on the other side of the world.

    I'm not trying to get revealing details emerging from off the cuff remarks but rather a more full profile told through an informal setting. I had assumed that at least Violet culled all the "uhm-ing and ah-ing", but what comes through is your own voice. Some might be better at email than others.

    There are people doing interesting things that I would like to know more about and I think that one gets a better feel for what they are doing when they speak for themselves.

    When I do travel I'd also like to interview but that creates problems in and of it's own, a way to get it all down, a recording device I guess, and then also translation or a cleaning up of grammar at least.

    First things first. I'll go for the email.

    A big shout out for Mrs. Fish, most journalists have left my country a long time ago, or morphed into something else. Heard about balloon boy over there?

    Yeah start with email and take it from there I'd say.
