Weekly Roundup, Friday 26 October, 2018

Good morning It has been a wild and crazy week, but have I got a lot to show you for the week that was.  We now have details of our June 2019 UK touring online. I’m using the “land cruise” concept first offered in this year’s Christmas land cruise (still have the cancelled couple’s $500 […]

Good morning First computer problems then medical problems (an ankle) forced an unplanned silence upon me, but here I am, happily back once more and sharing another selection of the great and the grim. Simultaneously on the great and grim side of things, we had a cancellation off our Christmas “Landcruise” of Northern France and […]

A New and Better Christmas Cruise Experience

We love visiting the European Christmas markets, and take Travel Insiders to Europe just about every December for this purpose.

Weekly Roundup, Friday 20 July 2018

Good morning I hope your summer is progressing positively.  I’m spending much of mine inside, wrestling with computer problems. A hardware failure was bad enough, but during the recovery process there was a brief period of unavoidable vulnerability while opening the server to the internet to download OS patches, and the server almost instantly became […]

Weekly Roundup, Black Friday 13 July, 2018

Good morning Before anything else, may I mention our Quad K Tour.  We’re now three months out from this exciting travel experience, when we go to Kiev, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan (and optionally to Moldova, Transnistria, and more of Ukraine, too).  We get a huge variety of unusual and even, dare I say, unique travel experiences […]
