Hello,

Please let me start by saying that I am not trying to plug my business or sell anything to you. Great, moving on.

My name is Dumitru, from the faraway country of Republic of Moldova (Eastern Europe).
For about 7 years I have been working in the hotel industry, first in a travel agency, then with a local OTA. 
As I started working in this industry at 17, it left quite a mark on my interests.

I am a web developer by profession, so for the past 7 years I've been looking for ways to use my skills in the hotel/travel industries.
A hotel website here, one there, and so on.

Now I have a business that works specifically with independent hotels, small B&Bs and so on. 

Now, as I mentioned above, I am not here to market anything or look for customers. I am genuinely interested in helping hotels and B&Bs have decent websites, nothing more. 
In the last ~8 years I have been to ~150 hotels from around the world and have stayed in ~75 of them. It breaks my heart to see nice hotels having lousy websites that don't do them justice.

So... I am here, reading what you fine people talk about, what you complain about.
And if I will pop into some thread discussing websites or something related to them, please don't be harsh and don't throw stones at me.

It is nice meeting you all.

Dumitru, welcome.

I want to frame this original post as an excellent example to so many of the other vendors that have splashed and thrashed in the "pool" here rather than just wading in nicely as you have done.   8)
