Good morning Let’s start off this week with the most exciting thing, first. To my disappointment, and his too, a good friend and multiple Travel Insider Tour participant has had to cancel out of the New Zealand tour this coming late Oct/early Nov.  He’s already paid his $500 non-refundable deposit.  Unlike airlines, we […]
