Jerrold? Why did you make this site?
More than once I have received an e-mail
with these questions and each time I
stroke my head, trying to figure out how
to reply. How much do people really want
to know? How much information should I
share about my family?
Let's start with
what I am not;
I am not a Travel Agent, employee
of a travel company or an expert on
Spain, Irish or Europian travel.
wife and I during a wet day on the The
I am a guy that enjoys
going to new places and learning about different
cultures. I have a degree in Anthropology but due
to my problems with learning languages, I never
pursued a career in the field. Instead, I
stumbled in to a career in Human Services. I have
never been accused of being a great writer but
people do seem to think I can make decent
photographs. The "Arts" and photography
have been an interest of mine since childhood, as
have my interest in history and architecture. I
see my central characteristic as that of an
My first stab at a website
started in 1999 (see Traveling In Spain ) as a way to teach myself website
design, and share with others some of my travel
photos and travel experiences. My goals for my
websites have evolved as time has gone on. Today,
I look to the websites to fund my travel in
Europe. I hope the websites will provide my wife
and I income, and recreation, in retirement. I
also hope my websites open up the possibility of
European travel to people of all economic levels
and "language" skills.
On March 21, 2003 my wife and I
established the Limited Liability Company,
Jerrold's Travel Guides, LLC with the hope of
developing additional country guides to
complement TravelingInSpain.com. In July of 2004
my family visited Ireland and in August of 2004
"Travels In Ireland" was born.
I am trying to make my websites
consumer oriented. Like the visitor to my site, I
am looking to obtain top value for money spent.
While at the same time I am trying to figure out
the best places to visit and the best ways to
travel. I share my experiences (some mistakes) so
others can learn from them. I prefer large photos
of destinations, all on one page, because small
photos just don't give one a good "feel"
of the destination. As I can, I am testing the
services of the travel providers and describing
what I find. I also try to make clear, who you
are dealing with when purchasing services, but
given the nature of internet marketing, this is
not always easy. I hope the visitor will use
their own good judgement in using the comericial
links and the information provided on my websites.
My report is often from a one-time experience,
your adventures with a service provider or travel
destination may be different. Additional
information can be found on the Disclaimer and Disclosure
about me and the web site.
I always like to hear the
comments and recommendations of visitors. I can
be contacted by sending an e-mail to travel@TravelingInSpain.com .
Replies are dependent on how
busy I am at any particular time.
Thanks for visiting and
supporting "Travels in Ireland".
