Hey guys! As you know, Courier has some pretty cool destinations inside, and the magazine travels to those places, too. Greg Corso of the Solvang CVB showed us his  Courier —and his famous windmills.

Hi, all! We're wrapping up the 2019-20 The Best of the USA directory, our annual publication that serves as a desk reference for Chinese operators searching for U.S. receptive operators. We send it to 7,500 people, including thousands of Chinese outbound tour operators planning leisure trips to the U.S. for Chinese groups. If you want to tap into the China market, this is your cue! It’s your last chance to advertise in this year’s edition, so contact me at kendall@ntaservicesinc.com by Sept. 1

Hey guys, in this industry, we know that mixing in with a group as a lone traveler is a feat on its own. Like the pace of a group, some things you can adjust to—and others you hope to not encounter.
