Weekly Roundup, Friday 26 January, 2018

Good morning If you might be in the Seattle area on Saturday 24 February, or if you’d like to visit the city for a weekend, I’ll be giving a one hour presentation to close the first day of a two-day seminar/conference by the ‘Frequent Traveler University’, at the Crowne Plaza close to the airport.

Good morning First, a touring update, if I may. Grand Expedition of Great Britain I’m going to make this the ‘last call’ for our Grand Expedition of Great Britain tour.  If you’re thinking of coming, please let me know in the next very few days.  Any later and I literally will not be able to […]

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 […]

Four Part Travel Guide to Cornwall, England

Four Part Travel Guide to Cornwall, England

Cornwall, once independent, potentially may become the next part of Britain to regain a degree of semi-independence (as has already happened with Ireland, Scotland, and Wales).  It even has its own language, once moribund and now being revived.  The Cornwall region (called Kernow by the locals) has a very different ‘feel’ and character to it.

Weekly Roundup, Friday 29 December, 2017

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 […]
