Who has the best ecard this Christmas?

I just received a Christmas ecard from Sofitel. This comes on the back of numerous others I seem to have been sent this year.   Many are just HTML emails or emails with attachments, but some are a little more fancy such as this one from Beachcomber Hotels.

A travel expert in the making?

Women demanding female Pamplona

Last weekend saw the start of the San Fermin festival in Pamplona. This 9-day long event controversially centres upon the famous ‘running with the bulls’ spectacle each morning.   Only a small percentage of those that run are female.
