Director Mark Bielski received this wonderful tour memory from Peter Baker, a good friend from Downunder who we were honored to have travel all the way from Australia to join our This Hallowed Ground Tour. As you will read, Peter and his wife have been entertaining themselves during this stay-at-home time with a couple of purchases Peter made while on tour. Sounds like a great way to while away the hours!
I read your recent email about sharing memories of our trips with Ambrose Tours and I thought wow!, what a coincidence, I was thinking about the Hallowed Ground Tour my brother and I undertook in September 2016.
Like the USA we are under lockdown over here, and I have been looking constantly for things to keep us occupied. The attached photos might explain why I have been thinking a lot lately about our tour, acquired these somewhere along our trip and dusted them off. My wife is doing the jigsaw puzzle and I am rereading the book. (I might even get around to rereading “Sons of the White Eagle” mate).
My first thought on most memorable experience/highlight of the trip was walking the route of Picketts Charge at Gettysburg.
On closer examination, I realised the best part of the tour was the people we met and interreacted with.
Whether it be yourself, General “Jack”, Hal our coach driver, your office team or all the park rangers and museum attendants, you all ensured the logistics flowed freely and brought the history to life, or our fellow travellers, it was a pleasure to meet them all.
Best memory is talking to, sharing experiences and emotions, having a laugh with our fellow travelers over a coffee or a beer during the day or at the end of the days travel. This is a memory I will never forget or regret
