Travel top 10’s

Standard

I get these emails from tripadvisor.com – top 10 this and that.  Sometimes I want to keep them because I don’t see anywhere on the site where they do.  So, I’m just going to keep them here. And just ignore the wacky abbreviations. No, I don’t know why they make up their own when there are perfectly good conventions already in use. But I am too lazy to fix them all.
