This is actually my favorite of all of the reasons why you should be using this site! Look, I’m a big fan of Rick Steves and his amazing travel guides. In fact, I aspire to be just like him! For me, there is one thing on my wish list that I don’t get from his guides and that’s PHOTOS! I’m a visual person, so I really need to see a place before deciding if it deserves a spot on my itinerary. You’re in luck because my site is full of visual presentations which will help you decide if a place is worth your time and effort. Even if you never actually visit the place for yourself, you can take a little virtual trip of your own on these pages!
