Cheap...but be forewarned

If this were not just under one hour, it would be quite a chore to listen to. Even so, the bad writing is as annoying as the bumbling narration, offering nothing that you could not find out in a 10 minute Google search. *** Amateur travel authors, please: Resist the convenience of having your friends and family read your work… especially when they cannot read full sentences without sounding like a fifth grader, or when they fumble through foreign place names with a goofy, questioning hesitation as if to ask “did I get that right?’.
Also...It would be so nice if travel writers would stop filling up space with unnecessary phone numbers and addresses… especially when all these things can be found online today. For that matter, we really don’t need recommendations for hotels and restaurants, many of which may not even be in business by the time we visit the place you were describing.
