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 18 November 2016

Good morning It has been a very long time since I last wrote to you on a Friday morning.  Our amazing New Zealand tour (and Australian extension) plus, well, ‘life in general’, all conspired to interfere, but here I am again this morning, with a huge variety of items to share with you today in […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 16 September 2016

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 […]

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.

Good morning I hope you had a wonderful July 4th, with plenty of fireworks, food, and fellowship.  It seems the nation’s transportation systems generally coped with the stresses, about as well as could be hoped. Still on the good news front, I’ve just had our key hotel for the NZ tour give me a couple […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 3 June 2016

Good morning Another summer has semi-officially started, and right at the point where many of us are getting ready for our summer vacations, the State Department in its infinite wisdom has decided to issue a travel advisory notice for all of Europe for the three months June, July and August. That is sufficiently broad (and […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 27 May 2016

Good morning If you’re lucky, you’ll be going somewhere nice for Memorial Day Weekend.  If you’re very lucky, you’ll be staying home.  Travel – on the roads and in the air – is projected to be either at an all time high, or perhaps the second highest level ever.  I’m in the very lucky category […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 20 May 2016

Good morning Was this the week when every passenger’s frustration boiled over, and we spontaneously all resolved not to accept two hour (and sometimes longer!) waits to go through security any more?  If it wasn’t, it sure should have been, and an eruption of news stories told tales of woe (and, worse, missed flights and […]
