    Google has decided that its users of their well-liked Google Maps service will begin becoming charged a fee for utilizing their service. Websites that are going embedding a Google Map of their location will be charged a fee for usage.This new Google Maps fee is going to hit mostly the bigger companies, particularly the Travel industry. I suspect that certain websites that are the heaviest users would be websites like TripAdvisor and Expedia.”;

    All the best to you

  3. I truly love your website.. Pleasant colors & theme.
    Did you create this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my very own blog and would like to know where you got this from or exactly what the theme is called. Kudos!
