    Hi

    I am Jessika and I'm one of the members who was shocked by the news we got on January 6th about Trip Advisor closing down the website Virtual Tourist.
    I have been a member there for some years and it was like an online home to me. I mostly participated in the different forums and had a couple of travel pages.
    In case anyone is interested, this is the link to my VT page (should be online until the end of February). http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/114fff/

    I live in Tongeren, which is Belgium's oldest town. It's a lovely town that dates back to the Roman times.

    Together with my husband and our 2 sons I like to travel, discovering what the world has to offer.
    We go back to Austria a lot, so the Salzburgerland area is quite known to me.
    We also have some kind of ongoing 'love affair' with Iceland, visited 3 times since 2012 and planning on definately going back.
    2014 saw us spend a month in Canada and the summer of 2016 took us to South Africa for a month.
    So you see we're not the resort-type of travellers.

    I'm just starting to explore here, so I guess I'll be calling on the 'older' members here for some assistance ... so thanks for that already in advance!

    I hope that all of us coming from VT can find a new home here ...

    Jessika

Tongeren

Tongeren ... the town where I was born, where I grew up and where I still live 😉.

Saalfelden

Home away from home for over 22 years now ...

Mittersill

We’ve been to Salzburgerland 20+ times, always staying in Saalfelden am Steinernen Meer. But since we have ventured out over the entire Salzburgerland, I might be able to also assist in this destination.

South_Africa

We've been to south Africa for a month in July 2016. We only covered the eastern part of the country during that time, from Johannesburg down to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi, Kosi Bay, Krugerpark and nearby areas, Mapungubwe National Park and back down via Pilanesberg Natonal Park. And apparently we have a case of “Africanitis” ... some VT’ers warned me about that: Africa gets under your skin and you can’t get rid of it ... so you keep returning 😉. And that’s what we did in 2017 ... we went back for 24 days, again covering the eastern part of the country.

Travelled around Alberta and British Columbia for a month in the summer of 2014. We still have to cover most part of it, but I look forward to help out on the parts we have seen.
