As I spend lots of time online, and would like to encourage others to make the most of the digital world, I’ve decided to add a new weekly feature to my blog.

Annette’s Websites of the Week’ will be updated every Friday and will document the sites that I have visited a lot during the week. I’d like to show you the variety of resources available online and give you my recommendations of sites to visit.

I hope you enjoy my picks and I would love to hear about your favourite websites.

This week’s websites…

www.frombritainwithlove.com – A lovely website which is quintessentially British.

from Britain with loveFrom Britain with Love supports creative British talents and showcases such work. Visually the site is beautiful and really makes you want to go back and see more. I love the craft section and really enjoyed reading the blog. Overall it’s a really lovely site packed with lots of inspiration, a pleasure to click through.

www.gransnet.com- -Online site for Grandparents.

I really like the format of the site and love that it is encouraging its members to join in the hundreds of discussions in the online forum. I’m confident that there is something for everyone on Gransnet as it genuinely is packed with information about EVERYTHING from grandparents rights to must have play time essentials. For me Gransnet.com is a definite recommend.

www.tripadvisor.com – Travel review site.

I’m new to Trip Advisor so can’t go into too much detail. However, I have spent some time on the site this week as I am currently planning a trip to Italy. Trip Advisor basically allows members to write their own reviews (and add photos) on destinations, hotels, tours, restaurants etc.. I think that the concept is brilliant as it adds great variety and honest opinions.

However, for that reason I would most definitely recommend reading a handful of reviews to get an overall view. It is important to keep in mind that we all have different opinions and different expectations from a holiday so don’t be surprised by a couple of negatives comments.

I read trip advisor alongside a Thomas Cook guide book for added support of travel experts and would most certain recommend making full use of all your resources.

Overall I think that Trip Advisor is a really helpful site with plenty to offer. Even better you can contribute yourself and it’s completely free!
