Good morning In just over a month, 26 Travel Insiders and I will be heading off to Scotland for our lovely Islands and Highlands tour.  We’re all looking forward to it immensely, and although it is the fourth time I’ve done the tour, it remains one of my favorites. No, this isn’t a precursor to […]

Good morning Our lovely December Christmas Cruise continues to attract plenty of comment and interest, but not many firm bookings.  If you are thinking you’ll come, please don’t delay confirming your participation.  The best value cabins are disappearing, and the pre and post ground options are getting steadily tighter to confirm. One person suggested there […]

Good morning What a crazy week it has been, with the TSA managing to set a new low for inanity and insanity.

Although it is only seven or so months since I last wrote about Uber, it seemed appropriate to update the […]

Good morning And welcome to 2017, with a nice big ‘meaty’ newsletter to get the year off to a great start.  I’m still getting used to typing a ‘7’ for 2017 rather than a 6 (or 5….).  Time passes ever more quickly – and, for sure, the faster that the rest of winter passes, the […]

Good morning Well, just today and tomorrow – two shopping days remaining until the holiday that dares not speak its name.  I hope you’ve bought everything you need for everyone you wish to bestow gifts upon; as for me, I’ve been relying on the Amazon elves to help. While not exactly reindeer and sleds, reader […]

Good morning It seems that some of you managed to tear yourselves away from the stress and struggle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to do some shopping of a very different kind – for travel.  We now have ten people who have chosen to join our Scotland’s Islands and Highlands Tour next June, including […]
