Weekly Roundup, Black Friday 13 April, 2018

Good morning Have you done your taxes yet?  Or at least filed for an extension.  If the former, I hope you’ve a nice big refund coming your way, and indeed, if you are so fortunate, why not, ummm, “invest” it in forming some rich memories you’ll treasure for years to come. This week I can […]

Should Homeland Security (and the Airlines) Hire Facebook and Google?

Should Homeland Security (and the Airlines) Hire Facebook and Google?

The news over the last few weeks has been all about Facebook – how much it knows about us, how it knows things about us that we’ve not told it, how it finds out things about us that we’ve not agreed for it to uncover, and how it shares that information, for a fee, with […]

Quad K Pre-tour Option - Moldova, Somewhere that Doesn't Exist, and Odessa

Quad K Pre-tour Option – Moldova, Somewhere that Doesn’t Exist, and Odessa

Why not add another four days to your 12 day Quad-K experience and add time in another country – Moldova, in its capital of Chisinau, and also visiting Tiraspol which does double duty as Moldova’s largest regional city and also the capital of a country that doesn’t exist!  We then cross into Ukraine and enjoy […]

Quad K Tour Day by Day Itinerary

Quad K Tour Day by Day Itinerary

This is one of the most exciting tours we’ve yet offered – a twelve-day tour starting in Kiev, Ukraine, then traveling through Kazakhstan, and ending in Bishkek, capital of Kyrgyzstan.  The tour is in mid October 2018, with an optional pre-tour adding Chisinau (formerly Kishinev) in Moldova, Tiraspol in ‘a country that doesn’t exist’ and […]

The 'Quad K' Tour  October 2018

The ‘Quad K’ Tour October 2018

Here’s a tour quite unlike any other we’ve offered.  It gives you time in three different former Soviet republics and an option to include a fourth country – and a fifth “non-country” too (it doesn’t officially exist but try telling that to the people who live there).  Chances are that you’ve visited many countries, but […]

Good morning Our Christmas Markets “cruise” had another four people choose to participate last week.  It is great to see Travel Insiders responding so positively to this new approach to enjoying a European pre-Christmas experience, and in a part of Europe that is all the much nicer for being slightly off the well-worn tourist trails. […]

Good morning You may have seen the story of the woman killed by a self-driving car in Tempe, AZ on Sunday.  Any unnecessary death is of course regrettable, but the biggest tragedy of this unfortunate incident may be that this accident slows down and delays the continued development and deployment of self-driving vehicle capabilities. With […]

We Need to Urgently Press On With Developing Self-Driving Vehicles

We Need to Urgently Press On With Developing Self-Driving Vehicles

On Sunday the first known case of a self-driving car being involved in a fatal accident occurred. Yes, there was an earlier fatality when a Tesla crashed while in autopilot mode, back in 2016, and its ‘driver’ was killed; but that case was deemed to only very partially be Tesla’s fault.  The driver had ignored […]

Good morning As mentioned, I’ve been traveling for most of this week and will be continuing into next week too.  But I’ve had time to finally get all the details of our first ever ‘Christmas Land Cruise’ written down – and what a lot of details there are, due to so many inclusions and places […]
