I have to nominate any of the travel reports written by St. Cirq on France. These reports could be published in a travel magazine, in my opinion. I wish I wish my writing were that good.

I also loved OReilly's trip report on Umbria. It was so thoughtful and well written. Again, I am envious of people who can write with such style.

Thank you for nominating Pancaky Papers, Elaine. Of course, the report would have been very lacking without your recommendation of the restaurant David. (Do you know, Elaine, that my mother mentions you all the time? She is always asking me about the lady who recommend the restaurant in Prague that served the best meal she ever ate.)

What about that zany trip report about the woman who met an Italian "friend" and their southern Italy adventures? It read likea romance novel and she kept posting installments to keep the Fodors' readers interested. I wish a key word(s) would come to me so searching would be easier. Anyone else recall the thread?

OaktownTraveler did a "Europe Threads: 2004, A Review by You..." (which includes many of the threads referenced above and some other treasures). Enjoy.

Here's the hyperlink:

Does anyone know why the link provided in my previous message (found using Google's advance search) wasn't a hyperlink even though it's from fodorsguides.com/forums...?

Where is Robespierre when I need him?

Fodors might be better served just getting its search function to work properly--allowing *real* searches by destination (not just country), year, keyword (you can do that now, but it doesn't work well), poster (that one usually works), and incorporating some advanced search functions.

I enjoy the cult of personality and zany hijinks reports as much as everybody else, but I also like some of the straightforward reports and those to less common/desitable destinations...the recent home exchange in Sweden report gave me a lot of ideas about that region I wouldn't have considered before. Also, I'm enjoying the Iceland reports.

Some of the most useful tips I've gained here weren't written in the most colorful style, but that doesn't make them any less valuable.

Maybe not, mvor. I think it's "fodorsguides" vs. "fodors."

http://www.fodorsguides.com isn't recognized.

http://www.fodors.com is.

That's my guess.
