I have to get this post off my chest, be it for mere reference for myself, but also as preparation for the tagging of the many photos I took and uploaded already.
Here are the travel bloggers that were listed for the Berlin ITB Bloggers summit:
- Ram Badrinathan PHOCUSWRIGHT (India)
Ram commented that only recently he started to blog, but also started to like it.
- William Bakker WILHELMUS (The Netherlands / Canada). Nice to meet, dine and talk with. He was blogging and twittering on the fly as a real professional.
- Annalisa Ballaria RELACTIONS (Italy) Unfortunately I had no chance to talk to her.
- Florian Bauhuber TOURISMUSZUKUNFT.DE (Germany)
- Claude Benard LES EXPLORERS (France). Nice to meet, dine and talk with.
- Vicky Brock (Scotland). Nice to meet, dine and talk with.
- Karen Bryan EUROPE A LA CARTE (U.K.). Nice to meet, dine and talk with. She came in rather agitated because she had booked in a Hostel right across Berlin, only to find out early in the morning that public transport in Berlin was on strike.
- Stephen Budd (Scotland). Nice to meet, dine and talk with. I’ll nickname him “Our Professor”, because he has already forgotten what I still have to learn:-)
