FREE Pocket Guide and the Full Destination Guide

It has been made clear on this website, how both the Free Guide and the Destination Guide work and how to get them and use them.

If you have problems with the Free Guide, please email me any time and I never hesitate to send you one.

The Destination Guide is sent automatically, and instantly after the purchase, to the email address that is connected to your Paypal account at the time of the purchase (since it is the only email address that the system knows about).

If you get problems, please let me know and I always try my best to help you as soon as it is possible. However at times I am also on tracks, I do have the busy season during the Wet when my inbox fills very quickly and is harder than at other times of the year to keep up with. Plus I cannot be expected to work at every hour around the clock, as any other person.

While I do my best to help you as soon and as best as I can, I do not tolerate abusive behaviour or threaths. If someone is abusive or asks me to do something otherwise ... that was the reason you did not hear back from me.
