Thanks for being interested in more
about The Travel Insider. Before directing you to hopefully
interesting and helpful pages, a quick bit of history.
This website started life in 2001.
It has gone through a few redesigns and evolutions, but is
definitely showing its age now. Most of the more recent
content has been added on our
although it now contains not just blog entries but more factual
and informational content too. That's a great place to start
your wandering these days.

anywhere else on the site, and in particular, everything should be
accessible from the Home Page (which we've now remapped to the

focused on current events, and as such, it quickly ages and
becomes less interesting as time passes. But for those who
want to be able to see what I wrote many years ago (hopefully it
won't embarrass me now), I've
created a back issue index.
Note that the index is updated by
hand, and I stopped doing so in 2010 - but the newsletters
