These topics soon expanded into Europe for Visitors and Switzerland/Austria for Visitors, and one of us (Durant Imboden) also found time to write a guidebook, Buying Travel Services on the Internet, for McGraw-Hill.

Our relationship with ended in fall, 2001. Since then, we've acquired our own domains and placed our copyrighted material on six tightly integrated sites within Europe for Visitors, Venice for Visitors, Paris for Visitors, Rome for Visitors, Germany for Visitors, and Europe for Cruisers.
