Default Other travel forums? (fora?)

I'm really enjoying this immensely, and I'm wondering if any of you veterans know of other sites like this--particularly addressing European travel. Thanks!

There's fr.rec.voyages, but it's (not surprisingly) in French ...

Rec.travel.europe is the main group for discussing European travel in the so-called
"Big Eight" hierarchies. Other groups dealing with Europe or with travel include:

misc.transport.rail.europe Railroads & railways in all of Europe rec.gambling.misc
All other gambling topics including travel rec.outdoors.rv-travel Discussions related
to recreational vehicles rec.photo.technique.nature Wildlife, landscapes, travel tips
etc. rec.scuba.locations Scuba travel, location questions rec.skiing.resorts.europe
Skiing in Europe rec.travel.africa Travel on the African continent rec.travel.air
Airline travel around the world rec.travel.asia Travel in Asia
rec.travel.australia+nz Travel Information for Australia and NZ
rec.travel.bed+breakfast A forum for bed and breakfast guests
rec.travel.budget.backpack Backpack travel discussion group rec.travel.caribbean
Travel to the islands of the Caribbean rec.travel.cruises Travel by cruise ship
rec.travel.latin-america Travel in Central and South America rec.travel.marketplace
Tickets and accomodations wanted/for sale rec.travel.misc Everything and anything
about travel rec.travel.resorts.all-inclusive All-inclusive resorts
rec.travel.usa-canada Travel in the United States and Canada soc.culture.europe All
aspects of all-European society talk.politics.european-union The EU and political
integration in Europe

In addition, many groups in soc.culture.* deal with specific countries or cultures
(soc.culture.albanian, soc.culture.austria, soc.culture.baltics, and so on). Please
check the language policies of these groups before posting in them.

All these groups are in the "Big Eight" hierarchies and should therefore be carried
by all Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

There are also groups dealing with travel outside the "Big Eight", as others
mentioned, but there doesn't seem to be one in the uk.* hierarchy, somewhat to
my surprise.

http://go.compuserve.com/travforum isn't limited to CompuServe members any more, and
has all sorts of freebies. I took advantage of their free rental-car VIP-club offer
and it's saved my bacon many times over the years.

If you're obsessed by the food aspect of travel I know of one.
