Travel Experience Exclusive!
A Farewell to Europe!
October 11th – October 23rd, 2010
Join William F. Buckley Jr. and a distinguished group of National Review editors, along with other well-known conservative scholars and writers, as we hopscotch across a continent in a specially chartered plane to the Old World capitals of Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, what was once Copenhagen, and Rome!
The plane is a specially outfitted Boeing 707! All first-class seats! Gourmet meals served on board! Don’t miss this last-chance event!
Our first stop is the ever-romantic city of Paris, now a restricted zone clustered around the old Louvre Museum. We’ll touch down on the eve of the general election, which is predicted to sweep the Partie de la République d’Islam into power. We’ll enjoy gourmet meals, sightseeing, and be among the last Westerners to enjoy the famous choucroute garnie at the Brasserie Lipp before the imposition of halal dietary restrictions. Be prepared to shop until you drop! Expect superb values on wine and revealing female attire!
We’ll overnight at the Starwood Blood of the Martyrs Hotel.
Back on the plane, expect all of the amenities and socializing you’ve experienced on the legendary National Review cruises: panel discussions with some of NR’s most provocative and talented editors and writers; informal encounters with some of the brightest conservatives around; a chance for females traveling with our party to relax and remove their chadors. . . .
