Free Travel Planning

Offering free travel planning for experience
8 years ago, October 11th 2010 No: 1 Msg: #120831  
First of all, this is not a scam or hoax. I'm 58 years old and a computer programmer and web developer by profession. In 2005, my wife and I started taking annual vacations. I did all the planning and reservations myself. Over the years, I finetuned and expanded the process to include MANY web-linked pages containing general information, sights, restaurants, maps, etc. I soon realized I enjoyed the planning aspect almost as much as the actual vacations. Since I have no experience doing this for others and no idea of the value (how much to charge) and the work involved, I decided I'd offer to plan a vacation (you can make your own reservations) for a couple of people, free of charge. I'd prefer to plan one vacation to places we've been to (See below) and one to places we'd like to go. All I'll ask in return is good constructive feedback and honest testimonials if/when I offer my services for a fee. If you are interested, please email me with your general vacation idea at

The places we've visited are as follows:
Italy: Rome, Ischia, Capri, Pompeii, Taormina, Cefalu
Irenland: Dublin, Cashel, Cork, Kilarney, Inis Mor
Spain: Barcelona, San Sebastian, Avila, Segovia
Guatemala: Antigua, Lake Atitlan, Rio Dulce, Flores/Tikal
Honduras: Copan
Belize: San Ignacio, Caye Caulker
Mexico: Bacalar, Tulum, Cancun, Merida/Chichen Itza
Greece: Athens, Santorini, Crete (Kalives, Hania, Samaria Gorge, Iraklion)
United States: Almost everywhere interesting
El Salvador
Peru: Lima, Puno, Cusco, Inca Trail, Manu Reserve
