OK, Rudi, Marianne, I can regularly check the Globo members Travel Logs, reports, etc. but it is better to leave it “unofficially”, I mean, without the intervention of Globo management, just like a matter of an individual Globo member, that is, me.
If the management is not against this initiative, I will be collecting the data and will announce you the results at the end of each year.
I plan to introduce new modalities of “best of the year”, as for example considering the point’s contribution, bold travel exploits, most fantastic pictures series, the loveliest reports, the most helpful and comrade member towards the newcomers, etc.
For me, daniserralta is my hero for 2006. He is still young, and is not rich at all. Now he is working hard in a hotel, in his beloved Barcelona, to earn enough money to finance his around the world journey, overland, in 80 days, making fantastic travel plans, restless, eating his nails with anxiety while consulting the atlas every night before going to sleep, dreaming with exotic places such as Isfahan, Samarkanda, Pago Pago, Chichicastenango, Timbuktu, Vilanova i la Geltru… I am sure that Dani, when he will reach Wojciech age, will have travelled even more than him (I have checked wojciech external web site -in Polish and English- and found out that in his twenties, Wojciech had not travelled as extensively as Dani has done so far).
Once more: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
