We are always looking for the next location for a new Groovy Map, and this year we will be expanding our map line to include several exciting new locations, including: Groovy Tokyo, Groovy Myanmar, Groovy Jakarta, and Groovy Hua Hin, Thailand. Do you have a favorite destination that you'd love to get the Groovy Map spin on? Let us know!
FACEBOOK: Keep up with the latest in Groovy news/updates/surveys/etc. on our Facebook page. We can respond much faster than on our own website here -- due to the programming involved (go figure). Check it out http://www.facebook.com/groovymap.
As we like to say around here, "If time is money, spend it well." We know you are busy or you wouldn't be buying our Groovy Map'n'Guides. We are your travel filter -- your friend "in the know."
GOOD FOOD vs AVERAGE FOOD: As you've probably discovered in your own neighborhood, the difference between a good restaurant and a poor one can be a matter of a few metres and not so different in price. It is the same overseas.
In fact, it is a bit of revelation to discover than top flight cuisine in Sydney, and normal joe restaurants without a star chef, are not more than 20% or so different in price, meaning that it really IS worth it to spend that extra for at least double the "value for money." Always check if the famous restaurant has a luncheon menu, which can be less than HALF what you would pay at dinner time, and if you're on vacation, or have a lot of time between business meetings, is totally worth it. One of my favorite lunches like that was at Jean Georges on the Bund, Shanghai. It cost a fraction of what dinner would cost, I got seating near the window without booking 3 months in advance, and the chocolate dessert was awesome! Groovy.
Adding 'GROOVY GEAR' to the mix
We're working on a number of new products to aid travel, travel accessories and souvenirs with a twist. Check out our Facebook pages for the latest news on forthcoming GROOVY GEAR (for hip, in-the-know travelers) and what's going on in our lives at Groovy HQ.
Keep on Groovin' -- aaron frankel
