Dear Reader,

It has been our pleasure to offer you the best original travel stories and travel news available over the last year.

This New Year’s Day marks the anniversary of our first year online (officially we launched in May '06). The future looks bright as we add new features, interactive menus, new destinations, products, and voices, to a new and improved, In The Know Traveler. We hope you will continue to find our site a source of information and inspiration for vacations and explorations alike.

On behalf of our staff, contributors, and production crew, we wish you and yours a prosperous and happy New Year "“ now get out there and see more of the world!

Devin Galaudet
Editor In The Know Traveler
