I think that thing that grabs everyone who reads your report is that your writing is so open and honest, which shows that you trust your readers with your innermost thoughts and feelings, and that makes us really feel as if we're on the trip with you (and Dan). Takes your report way way beyond a simple travelogue of mileage, meals, and sights seen. That's a rare gift to bestow on us readers, and thank you for it.
