We took the book everywhere with us as our travel companion and tour guide that led us to excellent food finds, breathtaking views and awesome adventures. We credit your book for helping us steer clear of all things mediocre. We enjoyed the harsh truths that you stated about certain places…especially restaurants. And in turn, your praises resounded that much more clearly. Bottom line, you saved us time, money and miles…and for that we are grateful.”
