A good news story from an airline - well done, Monarch!

A good news story from an airline – well done, Monarch!

A couple of weeks ago I was meant to be going on a press trip to Tenerife  with my family and reviewing a couple of hotels out there.  Shortly before we were due to depart, I was looking into travel insurance as I was aware that our annual policy had expired.  I contacted the travel […]

Kendal Cottages: self-catering / vacation rental accommodation in the UK

A New Year… a new venture

Many of you will have noticed that posts on A Luxury Travel Blog have been rather thin on the ground this last month.  This is because I’ve been rather busy behind the scenes with something altogether different, but at the same time related.  We are in the process of buying a luxury self-catering property (that’s […]

I'm an idiot (and a thief) for publishing this!

I’m an idiot (and a thief) for publishing this!

A strange title for a blog post, I know… but read on and hopefully you’ll understand what I’m doing. Like many other bloggers in the same situation, I’m fed up.  People are continually copying and pasting posts – often automatically – from this blog (and countless other blogs) on to sites of their own.

Commenting on A Luxury Travel Blog has really taken off this month, thanks no doubt in part to the Hyatt competition that we are running throughout May 2009.   Despite my best efforts to tell people that comments such as ‘Thanks for the information’ and ‘Great post’ offer little value to the blog or its […]

999 followers on Twitter

Approximately 6 weeks ago, I revealed that I had created an account for this blog on Twitter.   Back then I was highly sceptical about it all but, the more I learn about it, the more I ‘get’ it.   For now, I primarily use that Twitter account for directly posting blog posts via Twitterfeed […]
