JG Black Book of Travel's Director of European Operations, Jennifer Virgilio was wowed by Kate Middleton's wedding dress that's on display at Buckingham Palace until October 3rd. The media can't do the intricate lace design justice - incorporated are the English rose, the Irish shamrock, the Scottish thistle and the Welsh daffodil. At £31, tickets are selling fast so don't wait for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
This summer, JG Black Book’s Director of Industry Relations Greg Wilshire finally fulfilled his childhood dream: exploring the depths of a mysterious, wild jungle like Max from Where the Wild Things Are. (Not to be confused with Where the Wild Things Aren't!) Unlike Max, however, Greg’s adventure was real as he voyaged in style on Aqua Expeditions’ new cruise ship, the M/V Aria. Accompany Greg on his journey amongst Peru’s “wild things” as he reports back about his trip down the Amazon River. Ahoy, mateys! Greg on Aqua Expeditions new M/V Aria.

The first week of a new job is usually a mix of excitement, trepidation and boredom, of trying to remember names and finding your way back to your desk. For JG Black Book of Travel’s new employee, Director of Industry Relations, Maureen Kim, however, her first week was something very different. No cubicle, computer or stack of assignments. Try instead a week exploring General Hotel Management’s (GHM) luxury hotels in Thailand, Vietnam and Bali! Enjoy Part 1 of Maureen’s first week with JG Black Book of Travel in Southeast Asia.
