Hi Darren,Despite the weather (yep, agree it’s extlpcionaley important), it’s amazing how *successful* and important the industry is. a385billion market, employs 5% of workforce, 200million domestic trips, 30million international trips (gov stats). The internet does the logistical side of travel very well but I’m sure the above stats would grow even more if people were aware of just what’s out there in the UK and if we could harness the knowledge of local experts, ie B&B owners, tour guides etc. For example For beauty, I think the Isle of Skye is up there with Everest region/Okavango/Machu Picchu etc and great for adventure travel.The beaches in South Devon, around Salcombe to Bigbury-on-Sea are breathtaking and great for families.The more blog posts like this the better.James
