Good morning First of all, a word about our touring schedule for the year.  We are starting to get down to the wire for the Triple K tour to Kiev, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan this May, so if you’re thinking of coming, please let me know. Also, strangely, this year there’s not yet a lot of […]

Good morning First, some exciting/good news for one or two lucky Travel Insiders.  We’ve had a cancellation off this year’s Grand Expedition of Great Britain, and so we can offer you half their deposit if you’d like to come on the tour and can confirm your interest very quickly (and they will get the other […]

Good morning First, an exciting update on our 2018 touring schedule.  I’ve now put up the dates and details for our New Zealand ‘Epicurean Extravaganza’ tour, running from late October through mid November.  With a bit of care and belt-tightening on my part, I’ve managed to keep the price the same as it was two […]

Good morning I hope your 2018 is off to a great start, and that if you watched a fireworks display, it was spectacular, but not in the sense that this display was. Can I first talk about our Travel Insider tours for 2018. Our Grand Expedition of Great Britain is almost full – not so […]

Good morning I hope you had a very Merry Christmas. But if you were disappointed with your Christmas presents, why not now buy a little something for yourself.  Well, actually, quite a big something.  A used 426′ long BC (Canada) ferry – listed on the Canadian Government’s auction site for a mere C$5,000.  Currently, it […]

Good morning <Insert traditional comment of your choice about Thanksgiving eating excesses here!> I hope you too enjoyed Thanksgiving, which felt very much like a holiday for me this year.  Having Anna at home on Wednesday (her school came up with a coincidental reason why there should be no school on Wednesday either) broke up […]

Good morning Only a few days remaining until Halloween.  Not many people in the US appreciate how very US-centric Halloween was, but also how the rest of the world is now rushing to embrace it too. While the celebration of Halloween dates back to the Middle Ages and Europe, the practice of ‘trick or treating’ […]

Good morning Well, what a week it has been, some of it good, some of it disappointing. Let’s talk about the good first.  Our Grand Tour of Great Britain next June had another person sign up this week (a lady on her third Travel Insider tour).  We’re now at 18 – room for about ten […]

Good morning Labor Weekend looms large on our horizon, the end of summer, and apparently also, one week into this year’s hurricane season.  I do hope if you are in TX, or if you have friends/family in TX, that you are okay and have managed to endure this week’s challenges. We had another couple join […]
