Sisters Trip: Part Two

As you read this, sisters Carol and Beth are on a tour in their last stop: Prague in the Czech Republic.

In this photograph, they are in Regensburg, Germany enjoying a cold beer and wurst from the oldest sausage tavern in the world. 

They have been sailing the Danube on a river cruise with AmaWaterways, and they have both enjoyed a journey that has provided them with a major dose of sister-bonding, probably some shopping that they haven't cared to mention, and certainly many memories that they will be able to look back upon for years to come.

My bride will be home on Sunday night, and I'm looking forward to her return and hearing about her many adventures.

How 'bout you?  Do you have a special someone that you would like to take on a special adventure?

Would YOU go?

After a horrible ocean cruise experience decades ago, I told Carol that I would never go on an ocean cruise again.  PERIOD!

Well, as I'm sure you guessed, the cruise industry had changed dramatically and I've become an avid fan and cruiser.

WELL.  I'm getting ready to consider breaking another of my "I'll never do that's" as well. 

For years, I've told Carol, you'll never get me to go on one of those bus tours where they stuff 50 people on a bus, stay in crappy hotels, and eat crappy food.

But, I was asked the other day, "what if that bus were a luxury coach that more resembled a premium seat on an international flight and you were whisked around to experience only the absolute best of the best experiences in 5-star style?  Would you consider that?"

Well, that shifted my paradigm!  "Yes", said I, "I'd at least give it a try."

Want to learn more?  CLICK HERE. 

Carol and I are going to give this a try.  Perhaps in 2019.  If we do, do you want to come with us? Yes? Then click here and let us know.

I'm thinking that their fall color tour in New England might be a nice way to try 'em out.   To learn more about that, CLICK HERE.

Once we get something on the books, we'll swing back around and invite you to come with us.  Sounds fun.  Right?
