To the midwest and my goodness gracious we have this hot humid weather that we've been having and I've got on Airways made though right now what do might. Really good friends that I great great guy who went on this river Cruz. To experience and to share with the his bride. They're 47 anniversary and you want in a big birthday that ended with a zero I won't tell you the starting number but it ended with a zero mr. Steve Gordon daily or the mayor of keystone Colorado sustained welcome to vacation news. They're concerned mr. mark comfort and glad to be isn't this afternoon. Where it's all year came to see the listeners. Well it is. It is not as can be here what is it you're keystone today. Well when I woke up this morning with your 43 degrees it's so late Jack get tough. Hand in this afternoon right now we're recording 71% and two. I'll tell you watch that every year as you know we were just out their little while ago oil and help and our son move into that beautiful place right on bill lake Trout overlooking or. Incredible Rocky Mountains then. Bellwether is is wonderful but Steve let's get back to this river Cruz just sag which you near bride and Kathy decided to do this one we've made you guys made a decision last year while Mimi in our out there are she. In Colorado talking to you about this opportunity and Steve was the river Cruz in the hallway spurs everything you and Kathy had hoped it would be. Well I tell you what marked it exceeded any expectations we had passed and we went in with a high expectations. Not only produce the cruise itself but to get serviced. Biamby it's. Everything went so well chorus you know despite the weather and they told us that there have been some weather issues that we never noticed that affect. And we could not have been happier at booking you know if Obama waterways. And they really did a great job and Steve really Cathy please I mean you're in the hospitality business there would Vail Resorts out and in and you handle kind of the keystone area both in golf and skiers services so you know hospitality you know food quality you know serviced were you pleased with the service on board the I'm Allegra was well as the food quality and and members quality. Well market so different then cruise holidays are keystone resort to play gum up the business were in his guest service. And one just thing individual employees themselves. Provided collective experience that we lows remember. And the food and you know app I think we're assured of a food and it was always very very good from the morning. How breakfasts are even near quick. Continental breakfast in the morning for those that get up early like myself. Are all the way down into the evening dinner or at the shelf stable has never had as single disappointment. In food or service. Yeah I'd IE I agree I just thought this crew and staff sorrow were absolutely phenomenal Stevenson I asked what your savored memories were out of this trip now that it's a couple weeks along when they beat. Well we've got to rebound and certainly one of the key points out that really attracted us to this river Cruz was. Speaking at Normandy on the 72. Anniversary of you know to be there in June next. 2007. Or sixteen on December 2 anniversary just give us goosebumps. And then to start I think in this cemetery itself you know very. Hallowed grounds. Look at that all the young men and women. That gave their lives for our country and for our freedom which we should never take him progress and it. And going through the museum. As well some of the bunkers on the hillside that was good but they think being in the town there and seen the parade late afternoon. With the World War II veterans out there about thirty or forty from there. Really brought to relate to you know the entire event. Back in 1940 or. Two today and to be able to talk to some of these veterans who return to uniform and proudly worn the uniform. And I think what they did in what they remember in the friends that they lost I think certainly in Normandy was key. And it's anyone's ever thinking of going there putters on the list and do it now don't wait too. I agree there and I think most everybody in our royal family group felt the same way it's quoted another memory be. Count but to elect. Cassie and that experience in the European travel. And I tip limited European travel and I think just learning the culture of another country. This particular being France. Learning the culture Livan in the culture in these different towns small towns and in the big town you know Paris. But one of the things that. I was attracted to constantly fatigued. Eleven days we are there was an architectural design as so many historical buildings museums and specifically the church just. Which we never get tired and that's so rich in history and when you think of some of these buildings being built hundreds of years ago. And Natalie just put design architecture of it but how was that built how was it engineered. It is I just couldn't get enough of that. And I think that was especially brought to relate to when we went to the loop or the cathedral. Notre down. That said incredibly special area IE and Steve honest to goodness. I don't know if you're talk about this but on the architectural goes I'm seriously the Eiffel Tower was absolutely incredible. Designed to. Well and you know you take for granted you know that you think it's a bunch of to steal her I could general actors that. But to be insight to some multiple times throughout our troops there. Really TV greater appreciation especially you guys in to attack and look at tape engineering he talked about why it's. In the building up debt to. And I think was so brought to light only had dinner. The second level of the Eiffel Tower at the jewels turner restaurant when he used to desert. And that's the job you know and at. Desert camp that was inevitable talk and carry characteristic that you wonder how many nuts and bolts hopes in this cycle power. I'm millions as Steve used prayer 47 bloody anniversary. Having dinner. There are the Eiffel Tower how memorable was that. Well that they let that can be hard to repeat you know I think. Well we've book additional cruises are adventure trips to cruise holidays and triple play and another one forces are so grateful he's putting nine and justice system which we know already torn due to the time. With Obama waterways next April protect you stadium just so that'll protect. The big one that ends with a zero set straight to you Steve I'll tell you lied and you know you're such a great people person. Did you enjoy traveling with a group of people which most of them you it literally won't met once in our document party other than that harris' and Mimi and I think did you enjoy traveling with a group of people. That goes without questions did you get to spend time with them but it was on the motor coaches we ventured into another tone or reporters on a tour Joaquin. You know to a close Monet's garden path. We got 510 minutes with them during a tour that they need head cocktails with some. When you get back and ships that later afternoon he had dinner with them or maybe practicing next morning. She could really delve into what they're interest are who they are worth their prompt. You know what motivates them more they travel time so I just loads and you know doing that part of travel as well. You're a people person how about caddie did get to enjoy the royal family group. Well I don't think episode impacted because she thinks we've been again this week. Which have yet to it. Can't get in traveled that I had to Europe before and this could not have been a better introduction got to travel. It'll play in overseas stepped into a foreign country that you only know by name in history in which a grid. And our play our connections to customs and seamlessly seamless seamless so many of the listeners are concerned about travels. There's only concern and everything we do urge historic jump nice seven in her car. But he's gonna take that risk. Because it to look back at times short continues to shrink and you don't wanna say I wish it would have done it. So we were gonna wait to our fiftieth anniversary do this trip but we decided we can't put we wait for him do it now. Well on debt they had a little health scare a couple of years ago on that really put Saddam. Puts things in perspective too which is why you did what you did that when you did it here with the strip but I'm so glad you and Kathy went Stephen I'll tell you what eight.

Our river Cruz on the sand river and we were supposed to be embarrassed but because of the flooding and we started out in Roland. France and I have Terry and Mary walker are here with me to talk about some of their favorite memories but. Terry let me start out we view. What if you had to pick one memory that just truly stands out your mind more than anything on this hole fourteen day triple what would it be. It's the enormity Conte date that list outstanding mirrors emotional. And that. I learned things and I've never had heard had not lied about it. And there was. You see pictures. But didn't and I think you're right there you just can't put it together. And that that one of the things that I noticed was. The two the graveyard this cemetery. All you've seen them so many towns that we were right there able to take a picture of it. They perceive that far brewing in the same day just like it worse on these days for saved me two years ago. And that's also I learned things about they run against flying from England player crossed. To that nobody teaches stepped up their supply the gas for this. And they do assembly of the things we learned about it. It truly was Terry won and I didn't realize that there are five main beaches and 65. High. Hundred. Vessels that brought. Those soldiers in from all over England. And it it's just mind boggling was that we know about you know Omaha Beach and and Juno beach but there were five beaches there that the allied forces came in to attack the Germans it. We we did truly learned so much that day that at least I didn't noble for. You're correct yeah. I think we had that. They did the big steep wall that they had different face to play that's and they would take guns we who had deceived. For a leg artillery guns that the Germans used against this and I embedded in the big. Rock bassist Sam actually met basis and they were still three I'm still in recent attack the guns are still there even to this day. I'm 72 years ago all gosh amazing ended at. Mary I have to ask you what your savor memory was Mary what would be your favorite memory. I don't think there's just it was just an unbelievable. I would have to say. One of the top 180. It is probably what only god and compare it. Keep these scenes like the Eiffel Tower I mean you've seen it on television. And pictures and but he's actually. He'd be there are standing under the base he's just have no idea. How huge. You know wait isn't just striving and apparently seen you know law alone today is that things that have. I've seen my whole life that can actually be fair I just you know like still have to pinch myself that I wasn't actually there. Then very well and it's fun to have that dinner on the Eiffel Tower just one night after we came in to terrorists. I hope was unbelievable. But you know give space to look down from good dining room that was absolutely beautiful. And to look down and see this city lights and prepare us it's. You know I was just unreal in the mile hole and you know. It just so many great memories of this trap I have to say it's probably one of the best trips I've ever had in my life. It's really good you're gonna know we've we've traveling the other a lot of time that a lot of places south stare out there. Terry let me go back to you what would mean may be your next favorite memory. Probably. Had. Actually them Monet. Garden and homes that I was. I I I didn't know much about until we got there and they taught us a lot of things that garden was beautiful. And now home that he's lived in and took learned that after his death. This home and garden stuff. Nobody took care of their ticket say anything about it for forty years and they brought it back to life and it really was really neat. Boy everybody commented on that to everybody is thought that was just. And I know my wife Mimi was just blown away would that whole experience there are at. His Monet's home and gardens. Area by you and express my next favorite memory. Well like you know I mean decided to all the museums and the beautiful gallery ease and apparently got to see. Even light. Indeed. And acted the part that we saw about Anatolia and was very interesting deal where you saw different. Do we always tune it and lease art artillery each. And like his uniform some definite really put it this. But it all together on how small the person he was.

Are talking right now about a royal family trip that we just got back. From France on just a little over a week ago. And would be right now on areas mr. Steve McBride Steve was just recently retired and he hit his wife Peggy barely make it the most of life after retirement and Steve first of all welcome to vacation Busan thanks for joining me right here. Ed I know you are enjoy and retired life everytime I see your smiling and you're telling me you're in Jordan retired lives. Pat there's nothing I don't like about being retires he beat. Steve you met every bit on the on the river crew whether as before on a different river now we did a river cruise on the sand wherever the seine river. And what was your NN I let you speak for your wife to what did you take you think about this river Cruz compared to any other river cruise you know did it meet your expectations. Can't you know they'd given the weather. And that still flooding of course they couldn't. Its sale is as bad as much but guess they did meet my expectations. Even given the circumstances. They did a wonderful job. It did and it would take you said the same thing your wife said the same thing you weren't. I'll guide I think that's great because I know we had a marvelous time and we well with Dick Wilson in the Kansas City zoo on the Rhine river trip also lot novel waterways river cruise line. And this time you are right we did experience. A hundred year slide it in and around that Paris area which affected all the rivers and all of the area around there so I ate it happened degree was Steve Lott that Obama did a great great job but Steve if we had to ask you try and ask you or your favored to her maybe three highlights of the trip or what would they beat. The first set to be Normandy because we were there on the 72 anniversary of and to have all of the parade and that fat trans. For all bear. And particularly for me it was the logistics museum. I had no idea. About. How complicated the statistics were back to support these days. That probably Demi was the highlight. Yeah what did you tell you said that sometime after that troubles over that led general in charge of logistics was a genius right. We had to be just too to get everybody over. Followed this fuel does food. Then artillery. Ammunition. I just absolutely. I mean he would get to remarkable. Yeah I happen there grew the end and I met very few of us knew any of that until we got over their war draws. One of the highlights seem okay good DJ and I I think everybody in our whole group felt that what what what would be number two. When we went to dent the cliffs that. And members are now pretty cropped. And those were the clips sent Monet in painted in his pictures. And it was something that we wouldn't have gone on it wasn't for the flooding so I would say this is a plus. So they made a special trip force over there absolutely have scored just area. And they had nice little. I'm. These little shops out in the street took little market area on that particular day on Thursday. Most of the shop owners only spoke French so it wasn't something they normally see a lot of tourists. But that particular date and to see those clips to lock up on the cliff and to see the golf course that was that there of course has. Well as absolutely highlight from me. And tends to email was Sony knew that they've never been there that's the captain no hotel manager and the crews manager all went. Ahmed curbed the night. Yes they did. And dad I'm protected him they are enjoyed it as well I hope they'll make it as they pay regular stop for at least Detroit. Because it's somebody was gonna go on that particular river Cruz. I would highly recommend you go to Q cliff. Thought I am so glad to item that was one more I didn't go Y one did something else I'm so disappointed I didn't because you all. We're talking about how special I was. And I about a third experienced team what would be a third highlight Charles for you. I've had to be be so bad the ethnic and Monty might myself. And could see that every that was built out and on this island. It's an island when the tide is about and that there are men tied it in rather and then when the tigers that you could actually think it actually walk after the pilot. And was built straight up. In the air kissed the they have no marvels at how they built that particular Abby in the court to the happy to meet with just fascinating. Bitten by the way I'm so glad you said that does need to DJ I think was everybody's number one to meet personally that Abby that mall saint Michelle Abby was without court. Questioned my second most memorable highlight of that trip to. What what next Steve what necks and anything else that really stands out your mind. Oh definitely you don't week which led to dinner at the tools firm restaurant and that to me was that I.
