Kent & Beth Horsager
For Kent Horsager (B.S. ’84), cruising the Danube River was a bucket list trip. “The Danube flows from the heart of Europe to the Black Sea, zigzagging its way through kingdoms, countries, and empires, both as a joining and a dividing force,” Horsager says. The cruise was the first trip Kent and his wife, Beth, have taken with the Alumni Travel Program, and both of them appreciated the interesting mix of lec- tures, tours with experienced local guides, and plenty of time to explore the sites on their own.
A favorite part of the trip for the Horsagers happened in Belgrade, Serbia. “Our guide also worked as a professional opera singer, so during the tour of St. Sava Cathedral in the capital city he broke into a beautiful kyrie [a short liturgical prayer] to demonstrate the excellent acoustics of the cathedral.” Kent recalls.
Traveling with a group of 18 alumni enriched the Horsagers’ experience in many ways, Kent says. “Our travel mates were engaged and sea- soned travelers and that led to great conversa- tions and camaraderie all along the way.”
