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 – […]

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 […]

Good morning Very exciting news this morning.  I’ve regularly been asked to offer another Travel Insider tour of the Eastern Danube, through the Balkans between Budapest and Bucharest.  The 2007 tour I operated was so popular that it sold out and people were on a waitlist for it, but I’ve held off doing the tour […]

Good morning It was an exciting week this week.  I generally choose to book international travel about three months prior to departure, and so, a little ahead of schedule, I booked the flights for myself and my daughter Anna to go to France for our lovely French river cruise in Bordeaux, this coming late July.

Good morning The spring or vernal equinox is Sunday and not only do we already have daylight saving but certainly here in the PNW, spring is in the air, blossom is on the trees, and it is hard not to feel a bit of extra vigor in one’s stride. Last week saw a sad event […]
