Visitors can look at restaurant menus in Cairo, or check out a hotel in Bangkok, or see the tourist sites of Boston—all in one place, and all accessed by direct links. In fact, BTTG features more than over 19,000 direct, individually researched Internet links going to travel related businesses like lodgings, restaurants, car services, and travel agents.

A resident of Agoura, California, Richards has visited hundreds of destinations throughout the world, including the Peruvian peaks of Machu Picchu, South America’s Amazon River, and the holy sites of Jerusalem. “I firmly believe that travel is an investment in yourself,” he says.
