    So many places to see, so little time to do it.  Wouldn't you just love to see in person all the lovely places that our HubMobsters have been sharing with us during this month?  I know that my list of "places to see" has increased enormously and now I have the bug again, ready to make my suitcases and start exploring the world once more.

    This week starting today September 22nd and finishing on September 29th is our last week to "Mark the Spot" and we are going to end the month sharing our favourite travel destinations.  But before we start a new week I want to congratulate our HubMobsters soni2006  and cornwall_uk  for winning the daily doubloon drawing on Saturday and Friday respectively.  Well done HubMobsters!

              Denise, you need to add "hmtswk4" asap for the contest.  I put a comment on your hub.  You can add tags for hubtrail, but I believe someone said they need to be one of the first 15 tags.  I can't verify this.  Anyway, you can add:  hubtrail, hubtrail-americas, hubtrail-michigan. 

              Do a search for HubTrails and you should find info in old forum threads and in hubs. You could probably contact Marisa or RedElf to give you the links if you can't find anything.
