When I first found Fodors it was October 2003 and one of the first threads I read was Love in the Land of Mezzogiorno by OhBlondie and it got me hooked.

I have enjoyed many trip reports here over the years. I also enjoyed New YOrk Food Snob's Venice report but I can't find it now. there are too many to tell, bronxzilla.

I second the Tennessee Trio reports-incredibly funny and very sharp.I'm too new for Elvira but have heard them referred to frequently-must check it out!

Never forget Ben Haines!

Peter, could there be a section by well loved Fodorites who are not with us anymore? Like Wes Fowler and Art Hussey?

L'Affaire Continue by Cigalechanta. Also, just about any trip report written by Bob the Navigator or Ms Go or Mr Go is pretty great. Also, Indy Travel has written some pretty wonderful trip reports on France, and Nikki had fabulous reports on Greece and Paris.

Nimrod:
I am responsible for a variety of digital media initiatives across Random House, including fodors.com.

I'm in charge of content, design, systems, etc. My current efforts are to put in systems that enable us to publish original content in a more timely way, branch into multimedia, and come up with world-class community tools.

If someone goes to the New York section of the site, they should be able to see guidebook material presented in an easy-to-naviagte interface, along with the best community-generated tips, trip reports, photos, videos, etc.

One of my favorite personal travel stories was going to Paris with my one-week pregnant wife (the goal was to go to Paris and come back pregnant, not go there so encumbered). Yo ucan imagine what all the rich smells (food and otherwise) did to her hormonally-addled olfactory sensibilities. All she could really consume were chocolate chaud and jus de pamplemousse. And she is a big-time foodie who really was looking forward to the trip.
Ever the dutiful husband, I scarfed huge amounts of pate, salt-encrusted bass and several bottles of Cote Rotie during our trip.

Our marriage survived this debacle, and I plan to take her back soon...

Here is what I posted on the US board, in retrospect I should have posted it here because they are both posts from this board, but I didn't know this thread was here, too.

My two personal favorites are:

&

Always the gentleman, GravySandwich's Italian Trip Report

A good read. Enjoy, Tiff

Here's another vote for Elvira's trip reports. They were always a riot.
