New: PDF travel guides for free

We have just uploaded a new section to replace the old shop. We call it Take-away and you can use it to download complete guides in PDF format. Print them out and take them with you or put them in you PDA or phone - whatever you use to read PDFs.
The good news is: the PDF's are completely free and licensed under our CC-license. So go ahead: they are al yours.

The PDF's leave some space open for notes and we hope that you will use the space to jot down things you find wrong or missing and add those things as soon as you are back online.

The guides we offer now are:

AmsterdamPretty complete and up to date
BarcelonaGood, but needs some updating.
BerlinLots of info, some outdated.
BrusselsGood, but needs some updating.
BudapestGood, but needs some updating.
CairoGood, but needs some updating.

BelgiumPretty good
KazakhstanSurprise destination!
KenyaRather complete, but some parts may need updating

NetherlandsA biggie, more than 1 MB of info on this small country.

ThailandQuite good, we think.

We know there are many more excellent guides on World66 and we will continue to add new guides to the list. Please let us know which new ones you would like us to add and we can start with those.

The Take-away page also contains a link to the XHTML guide, you can use to browse World66 on you phone. For most visitors of the site this mobile version of the World66 travel guide is new - but as a follower of our blog you already new this service.

Hey guys, I decided to convert all the documents into RepliGo format (get free reader from http://www.cerience.com/viewers/pc.php) as many smartphones do not read PDFs as such. The converted guides are available on my website: http://www.vilpponen.net/antti/2004/12/22/mobile-travel-guides/

The .rgo files render extremely nicely to the mobile phone screen, and that is why I like the format so much.
