Good morning Things are slightly panicky here, with me off to Britain on Monday for our Grand Tour of Great Britain.  This will be the biggest and most complicated tour we’ve ever done, covering more distance, staying at more places, and seeing more things, than ever before.  Happily it is with a great group of […]

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.
