Readers: We all like to accentuate the positive, right? With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 stories on Travel Update since I launched the blog in April, with No. 1 being the most popular. Remember to check Travel Update’s Front Page for the latest story. I’ll offer you a mix of stories Monday through Thursday, and dedicate Fridays to foodie-related articles, photos or trend pieces. Thank you for reading! – Barb
