Two Ryder Walker Staff Members To Say, “I DO!”

Mike and Nicole are getting married! Mike popped the question to Nicole while hiking across the Alpe di Siusi, the largest ‘Alp’ in the Alps.  The setting couldn’t have been more idyllic—flower-filled meadows, cute little Tyrolean chalets and the vertical rock walls of the Italian Dolomites standing proudly in the background. Here’s a picture of the Alpe di Siusi, (Seiser Alm), snapped just a few moments before Mike went down on one knee:

Thankfully, Nicole said “yes,” and the two of them continued their hike to the Tierser Alpl Refuge where they met up with 18 Ryder-Walker guests (2 groups total) and fellow trip leaders Ken Fuhrer, Babsi Glanznig and Chris Pranskatis. A big celebration ensued, and the champagne flowed all around.

For those that don’t know Mike and Nicole, Mike has been with Ryder-Walker for 6 years and is an accomplished tour leader. Nicole joined us a few years ago, working on and off in various capacities, and now works full time as our go-to travel consultant. You can read about them at our bios page.

Please give them big hugs the next time you see them. A HUGE congrats from all of us!
