This week's project: "Holiday (Vacation) Spots"

OSM is becoming a very useful resource for visiting unfamiliar locations. A really good example is Paphos, Cyprus because loads of useful things are shown on the map - Hotels, restaurants, banks, tourist attractions etc.

This weeks project is to re-visit the map of the last place you went on holiday and add as many 'tourist' features as you can remember, to make it easier for the next visitor. You can do this from memory, by looking through your holiday photos, or of course going there again to check details!
