Weekly Roundup, Friday 14 July, 2017

Good morning I hope you had a nice long break for July 4 last week.  I did, although in truth I spent most of it working on what I’m now terming our Grand Expedition of Great Britain next June.  You can decide whether it is grand or not – there’s an article telling you more […]

Good morning As much as I enjoy traveling, it is always good to be home again.  Perhaps that’s the true concept of ‘home’ – the place you’re always most happy to return to. My return from London on Delta was surprisingly good.  Things got off to a rocky start with the plane that was supposed […]

Good morning And very best wishes from Scotland. I wanted to send you a couple of items as a ‘little something’; not a full newsletter, but hopefully a happy surprise for your Friday.  Next week we’ll be back to regular newsletters (I return home on Tuesday). I also wanted to update you on our Christmas […]

Good morning Well, the concept of travel chaos over a Memorial Day Weekend is nothing new, but it was unusual to see it coming from outside the US this year, courtesy of BA and some sort of computer glitch they suffered that saw their entire network almost completely close down for the weekend, and then […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 26 May, 2017

This weekend marks the traditional start of summer.  Here in the Seattle area, summer came a week or more early; and let’s all hope for a lovely Memorial Day weekend. The AAA are forecasting the most Memorial Day travel since 2005, with an increase of 5.5% in people flying, and 2.4% in people driving.  In […]

Good morning An interesting week this week, and a rather portentous one.  While, for once, there were no leaks prior to Mr Comey’s firing, we’re being subjected to what seems to be a deliberately orchestrated series of leaks to prepare us for what increasingly seems like will become an unavoidable new reality – electronic bans […]

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 […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 28 April, 2017

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 Amazon came out with a wonderful short-term sale on its tablets.  I’ve reviewed both their entry-level 7″ tablet and their greatly enhanced 8″ tablet before, and so I add a short item after this weekly roundup that basically records the deal and links you to the earlier reviews. Amazon’s sale drops the 8″ […]
