Thank you for reading the blog this year! The most viewed entries were the ones based on readers comments, and if you commented on a blog post recently, we particularly thank you. Traveling is something few of us get to do as much as we like, but by pooling our knowledge, we all benefit.

Merry Christmas! And happy travels to you in 2008!
