  • Happy New Year!

    Just came across a message you evidently sent to Max B. way back in 2009, saying you were trying to convince me to form Hebrew-language group here. First I've ever heard of it.

    I think that it is probably not worth the effort. Most Israelis who travel read English well enough to understand what it going on here.



  • Hey David!!! Just writing to send you and big hug, it s been a great year, and hope to connect in another great travel event. cheers!!!

  • hI dAVID,

    This is Harvey Frommer, my wife Myrna Katz Frommer and I have just begun to post on your fabulous site. I have a draft of a new piece on the SAYBROOK INN AND SPA but have 4 photos that I would to include but cannot do the job. Can someone from your site call or write to lead me thru . . .

    You can see I have about 13 pieces up from our archives but this is a new one.     

  • Hey David, great to be back in touch!

    That's good to hear about Iberia. I'm sure there's lots of things I could potentially blog about for them, in the UK and beyond.

    I'll dig out a list of their destinations to start with and drop you a line with some topics soon.

    Very happy to post here too, just a little worried about potential duplicate content penalties from Google, so any advice on getting round that will be greatly welcomed. :)

    All the best

  • Hi David,

    We run until mid-October.  
    You are welcome any time.
    I also have tours in Burlington, VT, a great food town
    You are welcome on that one too.
  • Hi David,

    Thanks for your email.
    If you and your friends would like to join Saturday's tour as my guests I would love to have you.  Right now the tour has plenty of openings.  We start at the Farmer's Market at 1230 for a few tastings then to the Old Bryan Inn for an appetizer then on to Broadway for several stops.  You are welcome to join just for part of the tour too.  There is plenty of food along the way.
    If you are looking for a good ethnic place for lunch your best bet is Boca Bistro, a tapas place that just opened a few weeks ago--right on Broadway--you will like it.  I've been there twice already. http://www.bocabistro.com/
    Of course there are many others--Ravenous for crepes and a more informal menu, http://www.maestrosatthevandam.com/ which is not exactly ethnic but does have an innovative menu and Leon's for Mexican food--near the racetrack.
    Let me know if you need more suggestions--there are plenty!
  • Dave,

    Thanks for the warm welcome!  I'm excited to connect on Tripatini and have more people learn about Contiki.

    Unfortunately, I won't be attending the ASTA conference but it is possible members of our parent company, The Travel Corporation, will have some presence! 

  • Thanks very much, David! Looking forward to learning more.

  • Hey Dave -- thanks for the note. Are you just coming to Chicago to visit or business? It's going to be HOT this weekend - high 90s so be prepared. I'm pretty tied up (event thurs, friends in Friday, gone Sat/Sun) so I likely wouldn't be able to connect. Where are you staying?
