The World Travel Market this year took place at the London Excel and run from the 7th to the 10th of November 2011. It is more than a ‘staycation’ with more enticing sights and promises of lands that we may so often only see on television ads, browse on brochures or envy our friends who are often holidaying and might every so often than not send us the occasional postcard to rub it in-travel bliss.
