A note of appreciation

Posted by marianwarren on 19/4/2006 at 16:46

Dear Somtam
I check in every day or so and really appreciate the current info - which saves me having to ask questions about subjects where I need a little clarity. Your itinerary suggestions were fantastic and I will use them as a general but flexible outline. Many thanks and keep up the good work. Both your and the other contributor's experiences are helping to iron out those pre-trip new country uncertainties. Hope your efforts are financially beneficial and if I have any $$ left after this trip will definitely make a donation. (Self interest prevents me from making this donation beforehand - but I hate running out of money whilst having a good time) Infinitely better value than buying outdated travel guides. Good stuff guys.
Kind Regards

Hi Marian,

Why thankyou for your kind words -- they're very much appreciated!

The best kind of donation you can make is a few comments on the places you stay at during your trip -- that kind of feedback helps us help others!

Have fun and keep the questions coming.

Hi Somtam

Considering your suggestion on how to positively contribute to the Travelfish site; what format would you prefer this information to be in. I notice that members are recommending accomodation, services etc. by name... Many accomodation pages are quite dated (Do people actually scroll down to the comments and are these comments then reflected/updated into the initial blurb?). I would like to reciprocate the help I have received from your site and would like to know how best to achieve this. I don't travel with a camera or write diaries but am willing to compile info to assist. (Have seen too many people viewing the world through a camera lens and compulsively diary filling each day)

Ciao for now

I'll jump in on the praise!

I've never planned a trip like the one I'm planning for Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos in November. It's an intimidating experience, trying to figure it all out. Travelfish has, on numerous occasions, been the MOST helpful resource for me. Thank you so much!

Can I add my praise to the pile. This is a brilliant site. For my last SE Asia trip, I relied about 50% on Lonely Planet and about 50% on Travelfish - the difference is I paid $$$ for my LP guides but Travelfish didn't cost a cent and is usually more up to date. The redesign has made it even better. I recommend this site to all of my friends travelling to SE Asia. Thank you for all your hard work, Travelfish!
