Weekly Roundup, Friday 3 February, 2017

Good morning For the second week in a row, our new President is impacting on my choice of feature articles.  But his impact last week was generally rated positively, and I hope you’ll like this week’s article too which, in truth, actually is very little about the President, himself. It had been my intention to […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 27 January, 2017

Good morning We’re one week into our new President’s term; and one part of his ‘making America great again’ platform is investing into the nation’s transportation infrastructure. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, surely you support that concept, with both parties racing to get an infrastructure spending bill into the House first, so they can […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 6 January, 2017

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 […]

Back By Popular Request :  NZ Epicurean Extravaganza Tour, Oct 2017

Yes, returned by popular request after our very successful and closely similar 2014 and 2016 tours (but, as always, with a couple of tweaks to build on our continued experience of what is most popular among the inclusions and experiences we offer), we now have the details online for our Oct/Nov 2017 tour to New […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 30 December, 2016

Good morning Another year prepares to disappear, while 2017 is impatiently waiting to replace it. What will 2017 bring?  New lower airfares?  Higher airfares?  Or maybe just more of the same?  Will Tesla cars truly become self-driving?  Will their Model 3 truly start deliveries?  And will Mr Trump be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, like […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 9 December 2016

Good morning Wow.  What a week it has been. I wrote, last Friday, that we had ten people who had chosen to join our Scotland’s Islands and Highlands tour next June – already a high level of participation, this early.  I don’t know what created the spark, but we’ve had another ten people join this […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 2 December 2016

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 […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 7 October 2016

Good morning My green ink theory didn’t robustly withstand another week.  After switching to green ink, there was a welcome lift in people kindly joining in this year’s Travel Insider Annual fundraising drive.  We had 42 people join in the first week, then 80 people after the green ink appeared in the second week.  But […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 30 September 2016

Good morning It must have been the green ink.  After our annual fundraising drive got off to a slow start two weeks ago, with 42 readers participating, I highlighted the event last week, which drew in a wonderful level of responses, including some people contributing for the first time ever. It is hard to overstate […]
