So a new decade is upon us, Christmas is out of the way and the sore heads from New Year's Eve are gradually healing. It's incredible how much focus is given to the festive period these days, only to be filled with a huge void once it's all over.
To fill that void we all need something new to focus on and something to look forward to, and booking a holiday seems like a pretty good place to start. Over the course of the late autumn months, visitor numbers to the website gradually dwindle, making my life relatively simple. However, as soon as those clocks start to chime in the New Year the world over, the traffic and number of emails starts to rise once again.
The first week of 2020 has been no exception to that axiom and I've been very pleased to hear from the many of you that have written in, outlining your plans for visiting Ischia this year or seeking assistance of some kind.
2019 was a hugely busy year for me personally; apart from looking after Ischia Review I've also been building up the other websites in the "Review" series. There are now a total of 38 websites, all in the same style as this one, dealing with different areas of Italy; regions, cities and other islands. This involved lots of travelling, thousands of photos and countless man-hours in front of the computer, writing descriptions and filling those websites with relevant content.
As a result of those efforts, there are some areas of this website that weren't updated as regularly as they should have been last year so during this first part of the year I'll be going through those pages to bring them up to speed. That means updating the annual events calendar with this year's dates and giving careful attention to every page on the website to make sure the information is fully up to date, altering any opening-times or entry prices to attractions along the way.
Our main service offering is Private Transfers to and from Naples and those prices are already up to date; easy enough as they haven't changed from last year. I'll shortly be going through all the boat rentals and boat tours to bring those up to speed as well; there will be some price adjustments there but also a range of new boats and excursions to choose from. Our third main offering is Private Taxi Tours of the island and those prices and options are already up to date.
If you're looking at the website today and see something that appears out of date or you're not sure about, please feel free to drop me a line via the email address below and I'll be happy to help.
Apart from that I wish you all a Happy New Year, a prosperous decade and of course, great times to come in Ischia!
