Posted on July 31, 2009 in Traveler of the Week

July was full of new faces and old friends as we welcomed many first-time writers and saw quite a few longtime members return (some after eight years!). We loved seeing these enthusiastic reviewers and their exotic locales—so welcome, or welcome back.

Here are four of the longtime members we’re thrilled to see again:

Last wrote about: Ireland in 2001
Now writing about: A great hotel in Salzburg; a sometimes-great hotel in New Orleans (cocktails: good, cockroaches: not good); and a fabulous stay in Taormina, Italy

Last wrote about: Estes Park, Colorado, in 2004
Now writing about: The Boston Marathon, which her husband ran while she cheered in the rain

Last wrote about: Glasgow in 2006
Now writing about: Zadar, Croatia, and why it's a welcome escape from the Dubrovnik tourist track

And here are some notable newcomers to watch:
