Saturday, April 24, 2004. It was overcast with a temperature of 48 degrees Fahrenheit. The predicted high for the day was 60 degrees Fahrenheit with sun and clouds. On the way to the train station, we saw Albert picking up his mail, and Berit cutting tulips and forsythia. Her uncle and cousin from Norway were flying in. They would be here at least a week. The Norway flag was up. We spent the day at Thun. It was market day.
During one of our many train trips, I had…Continue

Untours Foundation Manager, Elizabeth Killough, introduces the world to her new teammate, Shannon Davidson.

A film editor by training, Shannon worked on several of Ken Burns’ film projects. You can see some of her handiwork through our lovely new website, which she designed."

Eleanor and I have been trying to practice German words and phrases for our trip to Switzerland. This morning I said "Here's a phrase you should remember "Sehr erfreut" which means "Pleased to meet you." Eleanor said "I'm not going to remember that." I said "I'll probably say it first. So you just repeat what I say." Eleanor: "I'm not going to remember the pronunciation." Bill says to Eleanor: "Okay, just say DITTO!" Eleanor says to Bill "What's the German word for "Ditto." I don't…Continue

50 years ago on a Friday, it happened.
A few years later I was stationed at Dyess Air Force Base, Abilene, Texas. It was November, 1967. I had just received my discharge from the United States Air Force. My plan was to take a bus to Dallas and see where history was made. My camera that day was a simple Kodak Instamatic 124. Included in the video are photos of Dealey Plaza that I took on November 8,…Continue

My wife and I spent three weeks at La Canonica in Torrenieri on a wonderful hilltop farm surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. We used our apartment Cipresso as our Command Central returning each evening after a day of wine tasting and great restaurants. I can prove the restaurants were great by the 8.5 pounds and 2 inches on my waistline I gained.
Our Untours contact Harriet Gussoni was an absolute jewel and completely unflappable when solving the major and minor problems…Continue

We were picked up at 7:30 by our driver and Mary--she arrived promptly at 7:15 to pick up the phone. We had used it a few times for reservations etc, and tour bookings so it did come in handy. Thanks, Untours! We got to the Rome airport in plenty of time and managed to check in with Alitalia. Somehow in the online process we had lost our seats that had been booked, but still got seats together in the middle of the plane, so no problem. We were about half and hour late leaving Rome,…Continue
