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 […]

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 […]

Good morning We’ve a great opportunity for one lucky single gentleman.  We have a single gent on our New Zealand tour looking for someone to share with.  This person has traveled with me twice before, so I can attest to his general decency and ‘inoffensiveness’ as a rooming mate. So if you’d love to do […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 9 September 2016

Good morning It is great to be back once more, although the time away on our Balkans Cruise from Bucharest to Budapest was absolutely wonderful.  Perfect weather, a brilliant cruise, and – as is happily so commonly the case, a wonderful group of Travel Insiders, made for a really great shared experience. The ‘star’ of […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 19 August 2016

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 allow ‘name […]

2016 Danube Christmas Cruise - New Itinerary Never Before Offered

Here’s a wonderful Christmas Cruise – our favorite tour of all time – and this year with some exciting tweaks and changes to the itinerary.  It gives us more time in key destinations, and some new destinations we’ve never featured in earlier cruises, while omitting the least enjoyable of the commonly included stops. Oh – […]
