    For transportation, how about Subway/Underground? And Tram/Light rail?

    Isabella .... by Camel thats funny!  I think in that case we will have to include the dog sled teams too.
    The whole world already thinks we here in Canada live in Igloos,  might as well let everyone think we travel by dog sleds too.

    Larry the list looks great I'm just kidding about the dog sled teams
    greetings from just outside of my igloo Zsuzsy

    Did I miss it there? Ugh.  Zsuzsy got me all riled up with the thought of my Husky as a sled dog.  big_smile

    Hmmm whats the search volumn on lodgings rather than accommodation? I though accommodation would be a better terms

    "luxury hotelling" doesnt sound link English or SEO  - Luxury Hotels
    Asia is very broad - but you'ved added India as separate
    It might be better to split to South East Asia (vietnam, thailand, indonesia etc), Indian Sub-Contient (inc Nepal, Bhutan and Sir Lanka and Pakistran) and separate China (but then what do you do with Taiwan LOL )
    Make New Zealand  and Oceania - so include all the Pacific Islands,PNG etc

    You have some but not all countries under "lodgings" - maybe leave thsi category as specific types: budget, luxury, b&b etc and leave all countries out of it , you can categories a hub in 2 categories right?
    Preparation you could put travel gear :rucksacks, suitcases, travel alarms, etc

      Hi Lissie,

      Thanks very much for your suggestions!  smile  I agree with your thinking.  I'm probably going to keep the region divisions for Lodging.

      Cheers,

    under North Carolina, instead of just Raleigh and Charlotte, I'd love to see at least the regions - Mountains, Piedmont, Coastal Plain.....and especially Outer Banks or "beaches"

    I know, I know....totally selfish on my part :-)

    would historical sites and museums go under "cultural immersion"?

    1. larryfreeman profile image87
      larryfreemanposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Hi Rochelle,

      In my view, it really depends on the focus of your hub.

      We have:

      a historical sites category in:

      Knowledge & Education/History & Archeology/World History/Historical Sites

      and we have:

      a museums category in:

      Knowledge & Education/History & Archeology/World History/Museums
