The irrepressible and debonair Travelling Gourmet TM gets a nice and…

 MOST welcome email from Tripadvisor read and consulted by over 200 million people on the planet! Despite the importance and power of Tripadvisor, there are still some ignorant people who think otherwise. I well remember a conversation with Denise of Spain Tourism in Singapore several years ago. She said, “Tripadvisor, huh, what’s that? It’s useless, anyone can write for them…” THAT IS THE POINT! Anyone who has been to a hotel, spa, restaurant of bar anywhere in the world can write a good or bad review. That is why Tripadvisor is so very powerful! Alas, Denise did not know that and I am pleased to say she no longer works for Tourism Spain of Singapore. I wonder why…

Congratulations, Michael!

As a Travel, Food and Wine Writer/Editor/Educator for many years I have found that of late, Electronic Media and Websites and Blogs like Tripadvisor, to take just one example, have become more and more important…In fact Print Media is slowly going out of fashion and the advertising dollars are now being channelled more and more into Electronic Media! People throw away magazines and newspapers BUT information on the Electronic Media is there FOREVER! That is the power of the Internet and the World Wide Web!

Thank you very much dear readers for reading my articles and for your nice comments! I appreciate it very much. 🙂
