Welcome to the Travel section's Sourcebook, a compendium of articles, tips and resources designed to take the angst out of travel. Besides stories filled with practical information, we are also offering: * Online material: Although this is the biggest Travel section of the year, it's still not large enough to accommodate all the information we have.

Nicaragua has long been a travel spot for those who love Central America, for the good reasons Rosemary McClure pointed out ["Revved and Ready," March 9]. But she should not have had to disparage Costa Rica in order to do it. That is really tacky, and an editor should have spotted it.

The right to roam in Wales I was pleased to see John Flinn's excellent piece on walking the Offa's Dyke Path with Bill Bryson ["Strolling Over Hill and Dale in Wales," April 1], particularly the picture of one-eyed Llewelyn Morgan, who I have known for some 25 years. (He lost his eye, by the way, practicing the traditional craft of hedge-laying, when the hedge bit back.) At the risk of seeming picky, I'd like to clarify Flinn's reference to trespass and the right to roam.
