    Paraguay, named after the river that flows centrally through it, is one of just two landlocked countries in the Americas. What else do you know about it?

France for Freebooters

"I'll show you things you'd never find..." A personal site about France, aimed at independent travellers, with a few articles about Botswana, because that's where I was living when I created it. Dormant for several years, but I'm slowly working on relaunching it as WP-based site.

Don't Stop The World - I'm enjoying the ride.

Dormant site. My first foray into CSS, and a vehicle for a selection of travel articles.

Thanks, ruggie! That would be excellent. We're busy gathering all the info we can get for this new site. (Also trying to create win-wins with people who help us.)

Yes, we know that, Chris. We have all kinds of info on that site. Have you looked at it recently? Only today we published info about visiting the Tower of London for blind, and visually impaired people, for people who are deaf or are hard of hearing, as well as for wheelchair users.

Yesterday we published several news items relating to people with special educational needs (SEN).

Please, by all means give us your constructive criticism - we'd really welcome it! We'd especially like new contributions or comments on our existing articles. But your comments sound as though you've not looked at how the site is developing.

The CAN! site is less than a month old, of course we'd like to do more but even BE site admins have some limitations. We're doing our best with limited resources.

http://www.candocango.com/sen-green-pap ... -20-years/

Anyway, we really do want people to help us with gathering information which will be useful for people with all types of disabilities.

PS: Chris - thanks for reminding other people of the fact that there are lots of different types of disabilities. :D

BTW, this isn't really the place to discuss people's sites. more a place for premium members to tell people about theirs. :hide: I shouldn't have let it get off topic but I guess I was excited about the new site and the fact that people had something to say about it.

Apologies also Kay. When I tried to access the site it would not load - so I assumed it was still under construction. Perhaps you could also include advice for silly old sods like me. c.

Ach well, it's gone off topic now anyway - we can always get it back on, and maybe it's a good thing to have people showing interest in the sites listed here.

We are doing our best with this. For example I found a tour/trip to the London Eye which I could promote using our affiliate link (meaning we would get commission) but then I discovered that you could get it cheaper by going direct and even get discounts if you are disabled. (Disabled guests are allowed to have a carer travel free.) So I scrapped my original article with the aff. link, and posted about the discounts available instead.

Good business sense? Yes, in the short term we might make less on commissions but in the longer term we'll be seen as a trusted source of advice.

Can you see the site now? It still needs some fixing up but it should be there.
