Weekly Roundup, Friday 21 July, 2017

Good morning Although most of us have been focused on getting the most enjoyment out of our wonderful summer at present, I’ve been concentrating simultaneously on two very different things – the upcoming late fall, and next year’s early summer.  Could I ask you to consider these two time periods too, because we have lovely […]

How The Curse of the Internet Unexpectedly Afflicts Hotels

How The Curse of the Internet Unexpectedly Afflicts Hotels

I remember the ill-concealed delight with which hoteliers and other travel suppliers greeted the fledgling internet when it first started appearing in the mid 1990s; indeed, it was my concern at how the internet would interfere with my ‘old fashioned’ travel company that had me accelerate plans to sell it in 2000.

Should Passengers be Allowed to Film on Planes?

Should Passengers be Allowed to Film on Planes?

These days, everyone has a camera, and most people have a video camera. Our phones have high-quality cameras that can take pictures and video footage, and with our phones seldom far from our sides, it seems there’s not a single incident of any type, anywhere, that isn’t accompanied by a rush of people keen to […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 14 July, 2017

Good morning I hope you had a nice long break for July 4 last week.  I did, although in truth I spent most of it working on what I’m now terming our Grand Expedition of Great Britain next June.  You can decide whether it is grand or not – there’s an article telling you more […]

How to Manage Your (Suitcase's) Weight

How to Manage Your (Suitcase’s) Weight

We all know the sad truth of jokes about gaining weight while on a vacation.  That is never a good thing, but there’s one sort of weight gain you want to be particularly careful to avoid – the risk of having your suitcase grow in weight and exceed the 50lb maximum imposed by most airlines […]

Beware of LinkedIn Mutual Contacts

Beware of LinkedIn Mutual Contacts

One of my LinkedIn contacts approached me recently with an interesting business proposition that he promised would be very positive for me.  What’s not to like about that! Eager as I was to accept his offer, I did some due diligence.  I noted his impressive resume, and saw that he and I shared a number […]

Great Britain Grand Expedition  June 2018

Great Britain Grand Expedition June 2018

Chances are you’ve been to Britain before.  Perhaps several or even many times.  But there’s probably plenty you’ve not yet seen, and would enjoy a chance of experiencing. For example, have you spent two days of quality time touring around Cornwall?  Or the Cotswolds?  How about the Orkney Islands (many people don’t even know where […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 30 June, 2017

Good morning As much as I enjoy traveling, it is always good to be home again.  Perhaps that’s the true concept of ‘home’ – the place you’re always most happy to return to. My return from London on Delta was surprisingly good.  Things got off to a rocky start with the plane that was supposed […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 23 June, 2017

Good morning And very best wishes from Scotland. I wanted to send you a couple of items as a ‘little something’; not a full newsletter, but hopefully a happy surprise for your Friday.  Next week we’ll be back to regular newsletters (I return home on Tuesday). I also wanted to update you on our Christmas […]
