Savor Tour Miscellanea

Since the Blog Posts of the Savor Tour are now finished, I have decided to put together some miscellaneous Bits in this Post. In time, it may be expanded due to inputs from the group, hopefully anyway.

This was the final itinerary from Savor tours. Naturally some small changes were made along the way for the actual tour.
