Troublesome narration

I don't want to be rude but I was really off-put by the woman speaker (it's conversational style between a male and female), she has a valley girl way of speaking and loud laugh (the male and female voice levels seem to be different) that I found annoying. The information can really be obtained anywhere, but it's free and I shouldn't complain but I probably wouldn't get another one, I am a Frommer's fan though generally.

For newbies only

Nothing an experienced traveller doesn't already know, although the bubble wrap idea might be of value to someone.
