Hidden TravelGems (Travel)
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: NO
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION PAGE: Hidden TravelGems
WEB ADDRESS: http://www.hidden-travel-gems.com/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: The Hidden Travel Blog offers a vast collection of worldwide travel news and tips. Learn how to plan the perfect trip and avoid unwanted surprises.
MY REVIEW: This blog is rather popular on the Kindle, if the sales ranking is to be believed. (#134,314 in Kindle Store). It kind of surprises me, because I wouldn't think it's suitable for the Kindle. Lots of the articles have "Click here to read more" lnks. Oh, the links work, and perhaps I'm in the minority of people who don't like to use the Kindle to get onto the web. If you're going to have to do that on a regular basis, you may as well just bookmark the blog itself.
While the authors certainly go to interesting destinations (there seem to be several authors) the articles aren't in-depth enough to be really valuable. They provide just a soupcon of a taste of the destination, no more than that.
Therefore, I can't give this a recommendation.
