Sep 5th 2012 2:17PM Thanks, Dave! And great tip. I'll have to put that on my Massachusetts to-do list. :-)

Yes, there is the Route 1 bottleneck there at Wiscasset. The landlord did go on to mention that in his lengthy email but I left it out of the article for some brevity.
I just found it funny that so many others have to have a lobster roll in Wiscasset when the rolls are essentially the same (and essentially delicious) everywhere. Lobster roll prices are a rip off, too, and that's hilarious we were *still* paying too much for fresh lobster by the pound. Seemed like a bargain to us non-Mainers!
We absolutely loved your state and hope you'll have us back again sometime soon!
Apr 6th 2012 12:44PM Thanks so much for your nice comment, Lawrence. It's true that some of these sites lack the staff for upkeep or are hard to access. I hope that by shining a light on a few synagogues that readers will know about these buildings in advance of their travels.
Nov 26th 2011 11:34AM That's great to hear! Glad you enjoyed learning more about Pasquino.
Oct 25th 2011 9:15AM Man, I had to go through all these same steps, too, when I had my son in Turkey (Ankara). I forgot how much trouble it was! A very thorough explanation and a service to readers. Nice work, Meg!
Sep 14th 2011 1:09AM Virgin America is indeed U.S.-based, but its parent company is based in the UK. Sorry for the confusion.
Sep 1st 2011 9:39AM I agree with Michelle. I've been thinking about this post since I read it yesterday and the part that really got me was, "That would have been useful to my readers." I think a lot of us have lost sight as to what a blog is: a log, or diary, on the web. Why do we always have to be writing for someone else's pleasure? Isn't it also useful to be able to look back at what we were doing and feeling at a certain time in our lives?
My two cents.
Aug 8th 2011 2:46PM You are right on, LG. There really could be another antiquities post listing what's been returned and what's still being debated. I do not profess to be an Egyptologist or an art historian, so the comments coming back on this post are enlightening. One of the main reasons for this post, however, was to tie together two recent news items - the returning of the Tut bits and the repatriation of the Hattuşa Sphinx.
Thanks for your comment!

Thank you for your kind words! I wish I could provide you with the perfect answer to "how to become a travel blogger," but every one of my colleagues seem to have arrived at this point in different ways.
The best way to learn more about the profession of travel writing is to pick up the book "Travel Writing" (http://t.co/aWu5diA) written by our Features Editor Don George. It truly is an excellent resource.
Best of luck!
