A Trip Report is a short summary (or a long one) that relates the TripAdvisor's personal account of their experiences... its intention is to help other Travellers know what to expect, as well as what did and didn't work for the Traveller.  Besides sharing valuable information... it also serves as a nice way to give back for the help one received from those who Advise on the FORUM and also as kind of a Thank-You for that assistance.
