The upgraded TheTravelPro will focus on original articles providing first-person perspectives on real-life experiences at hotels, restaurants, attractions, airline flights, cruises, and new destinations.

TheTravelPro will continue to report news about how travel providers are rated, such as the Gervois Hotel Rating, the annual SKYTRAX World Airline Awards and others. However, reporting of most day-to-day travel news will be left to those mainstream and social media outlets that already cover such news unless there is a particular point of view to share.
As in the past, I will not simply republish news releases sent by various travel providers unless there is something to add or a different perspective that should be offered.
Although I spent much of my career as a journalist and still bring my journalistic discipline to the publishing of TheTravelPro, I will no longer commit to publishing on a daily basis. Instead, I will let events dictate the frequency of publication.
My point of view
When I travel, I prefer refined, gracious experiences and have traveled enough to know that dedicated hosts can provide that type of experience at all price points. As do many experienced travelers, I also know that paying a premium price does not guarantee a premium experience. Therefore, refined and gracious experiences at all levels will be what I will seek out and write about.
