Jayhawks on the Danube

Posted on Sep 15, 2014 in Alumni News and News

Brad Eland, director of academic programs for the KU Alumni Association, hosted 17 alumni and friends on a recent Flying Jayhawks trip.

The two week-long excursion, “Symphony on the Danube,” included a comprehensive itinerary that guided travelers through six countries in central Europe. The trip was designed to feature the musical heritage of some of Europe’s accomplished composers and allowed opportunities to explore nine UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Participants on the trip cruised the Blue Danube aboard the luxurious M.S. Amadeus Diamond and spent three nights each in Prague and Kraków in deluxe hotels.

The Alumni Association reached out to local Jayhawks and invited them to an evening reception when the ship docked in Vienna. Seven KU alumni joined the group on board the ship for a fun evening of KU camaraderie.
