Doorways, Ltd., has been renting vacation villas and apartments in Europe since 1994, when president and founder Kit Burns launched the company's Italian division from the living room of her Bryn Mawr home. Since that day, Doorways has expanded its services to include rentals in France, Spain and a few top villas in London and the Caribbean as well. Our staff, too, has grown — and we have moved to a more spacious office— just down the street from the original. But Doorways' most essential and definitive characteristic remains unchanged: our staff is still committed to offering a uniquely personal touch in helping you plan your ideal independent travel vacation. We are proud of this commitment to first-rate personal service and believe it sets us apart, among rental agents.
Doorways caters first and foremost to travelers who are thrilled by the prospect of "living as the locals do" in a delightful European locale — enjoying the novelties of a foreign climate and culture while making independent choices on a day-to-day basis about where to go and what to see or do. This is the essence of the "independent travel" tradition, also referred to as the "self-catering" vacation. (For travelers seeking full-service accommodations, including housekeeping and chef services, Doorways offers a number of very special serviced properties; please inform us of this preference when you first contact us.) Years of experience have shown us that the most precious service anyone can offer the independent traveler is information — information about every aspect of the travel and rental experience, including the minute details of what to expect at the villa, the train station, the museum, or car rental office. We also tell you what to look forward to: the breathtaking botanical garden, tucked away and overlooked behind a crumbling wall, or that amazing gelato shop just around the corner.
The Holtecast, like football after the international break, is back! And, like football after the international break, we're battered. Battered down by watching Villa play seven matches since September 13 and not grab a win in any of them. But that doesn't mean that we've given up hope entirely! No thanks to circumstances, of course.
This week we dive into everything that has happened since our last episode. And given that it was a break, there's a surprising amount to cover. Ron Vlaar got injured, Villa got connected to his replacement, and lots of meaningless international football went on. But we spend the bulk of today looking ahead to Monday's match against Southampton. How can Aston Villa's anemic offense unlock the Premier League's best defense? Can it be done?
As always, you can subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher, BlogTalk Radio, or any other podcasting service that you may have.
Jack and Robert are back, and so, too, are Aston Villa. After an international break that saw plenty of players out on duty (and one injured) the club are ready to take on Everton at Goodison Park this weekend.
And after three straight goalless losses, it sure would be nice to see Villa get SOMETHING from this matchup. The good news, of course, is that Christian Benteke is back, and he should help add some potency to what has been an absolutely anemic attack.
So we've got coverage of all this and more on today's Holtecast! Remember, you can subscribe on YouTube, or to our audio-only feed at iTunes, Stitcher, BlogTalk Radio, or anywhere else you get podcasts. Thanks, as always, for listening!
How often do you say Someday I will go...? Or do you have a Bucket List of places you would like to visit? Do you have both someday and bucket lists vacations? Why should we even care about them? On today's show we talk about the someday and bucket list vacations and what we can do to make them happen.
Alright, losing 3-0 to Arsenal is fine. Doing the same to Chelsea? Acceptable. A 2-0 loss that was competitive for 82 minutes to Manchester City was even, dare we say it, encouraging. But 3-0 to Everton? A team that had allowed more goals than any other in the Premier League? Well, that's just infuriating.
And it doesn't help that Aston Villa played terribly to boot.
Jack and Robert are back to dissect yet another loss. Four in a row in a stretch that we knew was capable of producing exactly that kind of run. And in fact, that's the only thing keeping most Villa fans sane right now. Lose 3-0 to QPR on Monday, though, and you can bet we all lose that tenuous grasp.
