Arrivederci tutti - Bye everyone!

Hello all forum users

I have made the decision to leave my post as a DE for Sorrento and to leave Trip Advisor altogether. I will be contacting TA on Friday to close my account.

Various reasons have contributed to this decision, some of them personal.

Sorrento will continue to be one of my favourite places on the planet and I will still be visiting a couple of times a year (at least!).

I have enjoyed being a part of this forum, most of the time anyway. I have received several nasty messages during my time here but most people are here for the same reason as me - to have a brilliant holiday:) It has been lovely to hear back from people who have taken advice on board and have reported back that they had a great time in Sorrento.

I would like to say a big 'Grazie Mille' to Newboldbobs for nominating me as a DE - it has been fun Sue. Maybe we'll bump into each other in the Furla shop sometime!!!

ModemUK - the only other DE I have met in person in Sorrento, it has been a pleasure - stay in touch.

My last piece of advice for anyone going, or thinking about going, to Sorrento is this: Enjoy Sorrento for what it is, expect to see lots of other tourists, take plenty money - its not exactly cheap, get out and about and enjoy the local area, a few words in Italian go a long way with the locals. Oh, and don't expect to see a kettle in your hotel room!

Happy Travels everyone!

Oh Ellie

Just have a break for a while - no point in closing your TA Account.

Hope your personal matters get sorted and everyone is well.

Best regards,

That's a shame but it's your life not ours.

I don't think I ever replied to any of your posts but I read a lot of them.

Thanks for your time and do something you enjoy :-)

Ellie - the hard work that's gone into your highly practical advice will be sorely missed...

Have a great 'retirement', and enjoy all the extra free time you'll have!

Hi ElleJ,

Why not just have a break... I felt like you many times & decided to have a holiday from TA which worked wonders...

" I have received several nasty messages during my time" - don't let them get you down...there will always be bullies.

If not; thank you for contributing to TA, I'm sure you will be missed !
