Prediction : TheTravelEditor.com

Sultry, thundery, with occasional storms. The children are fractious, the adults argumentative and the cats jumpy. Even the washing machine is on the blink.

As a sometime travel journo, it's great to see a new site appear on the net with a unique emphasis on author personalities.

The Travel Editor has in its short life managed to attract an eclectic mix of travel writers and photographers, covering not just the usual hotels, restaurants and places of interest, but also offering the offbeat, the historical, the gastronomically unusual. I like the vote-for-your-favourite-author feature. After all, what is travel journalism about but the experiences and personality of the writer?

Access the information by destination or through Top Ten listings. Book your tickets online, then use the site to download your own personal travel guide.

Great stuff, and perhaps set to become one of the best of the best of travel websites. Watch this space.

PS There's a space on your Top Ten Italian Lakes Resorts listing - perhaps you might want to fill that gap with our own beautiful Cannobio - the 'best-preserved medieval town this side of Lago Maggiore'...

Travel websites not only give us information but they also give us feeling of being on holiday for a while.
