My trip reports

On thorntree

So thorntree has closed, maybe temporarily, maybe not.

thorntree closed

I guess I half expected it to happen, and that was one of the reasons I started this site. Before I only posted trip reports on thorntree, but I half remember past problems, so decided it would be best to have a backup.

What of alternatives to thorntree? Some are listed on the right. Tripadvisor I have used, but decided to stop posting. Bootsnall I found a little inward looking. Indiamike is fine, but only for India.

What’s next? Well, if it is closed, I have a lot more time on my hands. Should do my work instead, but who wants to do that…

Update: it came back, and some things have changed, and it has been sold to an American, but basic functionality is still there, and it’s better than others, so for the moment I stay.

Update March 2014: V5 is now launched. And while not perfect, I think better than I expected. Congratulations to their IT team.
