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 […]

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 23 December 2016

Good morning Well, just today and tomorrow – two shopping days remaining until the holiday that dares not speak its name.  I hope you’ve bought everything you need for everyone you wish to bestow gifts upon; as for me, I’ve been relying on the Amazon elves to help. While not exactly reindeer and sleds, reader […]

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 25 November 2016

Good morning I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and over-ate abundantly, so as to give you sufficient energy for today’s Black Friday sales.  My daughter wants to go ‘normal shopping’ and I’ve had to persuade her to wait until the far side of the weekend’s madness before getting within several blocks of any of […]

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 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 […]
