What TheWeb-Reviewer.com says about TripVine:

There’s no shortage of websites with articles on hidden Cafes in Sydney Australia, or late-night revelling in downtown Austin. So what makes tripvine.com different? Well, the contributors make this site different. They are local to their cities and specialists in what they write about.

Take former editor of ‘Endless Vacation’ magazine, Laurie Borman in Chicago, her home town. She brings the magic of ice sculpture at ‘Winter on the Green’, or the goings-on at ‘WinterFest’ in Ingleside.

These are great insights into the otherwise unknown, and the unexpected. Travel blogs are here, there and everywhere, but Tripvine has an edge.

    I’ve just spent some time on your site. You are quite the Renaissance Woman. Your writing reminds me of having a good friend relate her experiences. It makes me want to hear about more adventures. You have a very approachable manner of writing.
