Grand Canyon Whitewater (GCW) and Colorado River Discovery (CRD), a company who runs daily trips in Glen Canyon, recently shared a booth at the CMT Travel Show in Stuttgart, Germany. Myself, Korey from CRD and Thea, a GCW river guide originally from Germany, went to work the booth. We definitely stood out from the other companies in our hall as we were nearly the only vendor not from Germany!
It was a lot of fun, a lot of talking about rafting trips and a lot of really excited people! We talked to one German man that had actually been down the Grand Canyon with Georgie of Georgie’s Royal River Rats in the 1950s!
We were really glad to have Thea, who was able to speak German with the crowds. She was a great help. Korey and I were able to talk to plenty of folks in English, though, but we’ll be purchasing Rosetta Stone German for future business trips!
