It’s great when others promote your site. There are two reasons why someone would do this.

The other is that you have promoted them, and they want to reciprocate by promoting you. Often it is a combination of both reasons.
The E travel gallery is dedicated to more of a city tourist. You can find the secret bars and restaurants that only dedicated travelers know about. Do you need a hostel in Amsterdam? This is the site. They’ve traveled to Germany during Oktoberfest and have spent the holidays in New York City. They have a page dedicated to cheap flights and categories for any part of the world. You can waste a whole afternoon imagining your travels to Rio, Spain, Iceland, New York, London, and Berlin. They also have a page dedicated tour touristy tours that are given in major cities. My favorite posting on the site was the visitation to Iceland. Have you ever wondered why Iceland is green and Greenland is Ice?
