As I approached 65, they knew I was in their demographic, and they started sending catalogs. I studied them, loved their boats, loved their philosophy, “Destination focused and culturally enriching”. A viking European river cruise. A new city every morning. Land and city deep dive: food, culture, wine, short strolls through the city. Lunch overlooking the river. A cabin with a porch. Interesting and fun fellow travelers, great conversations. I brought it up to Nancy on at least a dozen occasions and she countered with the grand tour by motorcar, me as driver, with freedom of the open road.
We settled on a trip to Conway, NH. and a trip to Mount Desert, Maine, and the Black Point Inn in Scarborough, Maine. All were a delight. I still longed for Viking.
Then, 2020 arrived and Europe won’t let Americans in due to our errant behavior. Nancy invited me apple picking at a new orchard. We’ve been planting gardens and working on projects around the house.
I saw this piece and instantly I was on a Viking Longship cruising on the Danube on a two week tour from Amsterdam to Budapest. This is my lamented Longship grand tour.
I suspect you have been. I suspect you intend to go. When you go, Nancy and I will be in the Veranda Suite next door. – R.H.P.
*The price of the necklace is a thousand dollars less then it might have otherwise been because it has a microscopic feather mid-gem on the table. Can you see it? Not with the naked eye.
If absolute perfection if your ultimate goal, we do have a matching pair of earrings… identical but with no fleck, no feather. They are articulated, swing freely as she moves, or as your Viking ship crosses a wake. Your dinner companions will notice and approve. The price of the Viking Longship earrings is $9,180. We can provide a picture of the earrings upon request. Call us to discuss.They are perfect in every way just like the trip you imagine…and amazing substitute for the trip you can’t take right now. The combined price is about the cost of the Grand Tour Down the Danube in the explorer suite in high season.
