Software for travellers[edit]

  • Delete. This article is heavily outdated, plus it is unlikely that it will be ever up to date. Nowadays software/gps/maps/travel guides for all smartphones exist and searching in the App Stores will find everything you want. WindowsNT (talk) 03:50, 17 July 2013 (EDT)
  • WindowsNT, do you think that you could help us updated this article as well ? Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 18:53, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
I could, but the information there is overwhelming. There are so many applications nowadays for travellers that such a page would need constant update to be up to date. Besides, for smartphones/tablets there are already "app stores" which can be searched; It's unlikely that a user will find WikiTravel information very much useful. However, I could update it with general information about maps and software restrictions/capabilities/requirements, so it's not a "directory" of software, but a travel topic about software. WindowsNT (talk) 14:01, 14 August 2013 (EDT)
I think that your idea about making this page more general is a great idea! Otherwise, exactly as you said, it would be constantly outdated nowadays. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 19:48, 14 August 2013 (EDT)
Would you put some images to Software for travellers ? Cheers WindowsNT (talk) 06:24, 21 August 2013 (EDT).
I added one picture of GPS for now. Check it out. Feel free to use Wikimedia Commons to search for pictures. You can use them on Wikitravel as the license stays the same. Just type the key word in Search box. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 19:33, 21 August 2013 (EDT)

July 2013[edit]

Bottle Beach[edit]

  • Delete. There shouldn't be an entire article about a beach. Bocablue (talk) 16:38, 23 July 2013 (EDT)
  • Keep. Bocablue (talk) 15:03, 26 July 2013 (EDT)
  • Not sure. Bocablue, I'm not really convinced we should delete it as I see that other articles for beaches in Ko Pha Ngan exist, for example: Haad Yao and Haad Chao Phao. I know that they are more developed and I hope that within time some users will plunge forward and develop Bottle Beach as well. Feel free to convince me to change my mind, I just don't know if there are some bars/ restaurants/ hotels on Bottle Beach that we can write about in the article. Would be great to hear back from you. Thanks! IBAlex (talk) 14:56, 25 July 2013 (EDT)
Well I'm not really familiar with the area, either - I just came across this page on the list of stubs. I do question whether it's necessary for this small island to have a separate article for every tiny beach, but maybe it's ok if they're really like small towns and not beaches as I know them. Bocablue (talk) 15:37, 25 July 2013 (EDT)
I did some small research and I would say that Bottle Beach is more like a small town. I saw many options for hotels/ restaurants/ activities which makes me lean towards keeping the page. Would be great if some of our Wikitravelers could add this information to the page. Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 14:11, 26 July 2013
Seems like you're right, then.Bocablue (talk) 15:04, 26 July 2013 (EDT)
If one day I go to Bottle Beach (I wish), I will update the page with more information:) Cheers! IBAlex (talk) 15:06, 26 July 2013 (EDT)
  • Keep. Just make sure someone has been there and fills some details. WindowsNT (talk) 10:57, 29 July 2013 (EDT)


  • Delete Not a major tourist destination in Jordan, plus empty for a long time. WindowsNT (talk) 13:44, 7 August 2013 (EDT)
  • Ok, I deleted it. Thanks! IBAlex (talk) 18:51, 12 August 2013 (EDT)

Six days hiking on Moskenesøy[edit]

  • Delete Article has not been updated for years. The article is still missing central information to make this hiking tour possible, and it is not safe to do this hiking with out this information (eg. where to find boat, bus, where to get key to cabin and what map to bring). Since the topic is more like a personal hiking report, it is not easy to find and fill in this information. The article meet the requirements for deleting a wiki travel article, since it is an itinerary that have been at outline status without being substantially edited within one year.
  • Delete Agree with the above, plus, obvious personal experience articles are somewhere subjective and attached to the author in question, whether physically or emotionally. WindowsNT (talk) 12:40, 22 August 2013 (EDT)
  • Deleted- thank you! IBAlex (talk) 13:05, 22 August 2013 (EDT)

Eastern Desert[edit]


  • Delete There is nothing interesting. Ilya Pobelov (talk) 16:36, 1 September 2013 (EDT)
  • Has anybody been there who can help us expand this article? I just don't want delete it in case somebody would work on it in the future. Thank you! IBAlex (talk) 15:33, 5 September 2013 (EDT)
  • I pass Palézieux station twice by day by train. I even have been in Palézieux village, which is not on a main train line. It is an agricultural village of Swiss plateau with absolutely no touristic value. Ilya Pobelov (talk) 03:15, 1 October 2013 (EDT)
  • Ok, then I will delete it so that we don't store skeleton articles on Wikitravel. Thanks! IBAlex (talk) 19:39, 1 October 2013 (EDT)


  • Delete Same as Villars-sur-Ollon. Bits of useful information are transferred to Villars-sur-Ollon. Ilya Pobelov (talk) 16:53, 1 September 2013 (EDT)
  • Do I understand it correctly- is Villars the same location as Villars-sur-Ollon? Thanks! IBAlex (talk) 18:41, 4 September 2013 (EDT)
  • Convert Villars to disambiguation page ? Not exactly. There are few dozens of villages in Switzerland and France called Villars, see e.g. English or French wikipedia. Villars-sur-Ollon is just the most famous because it is a skiing area. But the text on the page Villars is about Villars-sur-Ollon. French wikitravel lists Villars-sur-Ollon and Villars-Colmars, so there is a potential that more places with similar names may appear. There is also chocolate Villars. Ilya Pobelov (talk) 07:40, 5 September 2013 (EDT)
  • Thanks for explaining that. Now things are clear. In order to create a disambiguation page we need to have several different articles with the title "Villars". Right now we have just one Villars-sur-Ollon. This makes impossible for me to create a disambiguation page. Let me ask you, do you know the other Villars destinations, eg. Villars-Colmars? Would be great if you could create pages for them and in this way I would be able to create the disambiguation page. Would it be ok with you? Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 15:32, 5 September 2013 (EDT)
  • I created page Villars-Colmars, although I have no idea about this place... Ilya Pobelov (talk) 14:20, 29 September 2013 (EDT)
  • Ok. I created disambiguation page for Villars and I would suggest leaving those 2 destinations as the pages have some content. Hopefully users will plunge forward and edit them. Thanks! IBAlex (talk) 17:40, 30 September 2013 (EDT)
