Special Visitors from Norway
Today, we had some fun visitors--from Norway! The group is standing under the Norwegian flag that we flew in honor of their visit. Brian Baker from New England Journeys (center, in gray) and Trine Brenna, from ViaTours in Oslo, Norway (left, in black sweater) brought this unusual familiarization tour of New England with them to have lunch with us at the Hawthorne Hotel.
Some of the group are consumers that won a trip to New England in a promotion by ViaTours this summer. Via had a suitcase sent to many areas around Norway for several weeks, and consumers had to take pictures and join their Facebook page. Some press came along as well. It was great stop-over and got these travelers excited about their next visit to America!
We are blessed to be able to welcome visitors from all over the world to #SalemMa since we are so close to #LoganAirport and #Boston. Salem is truly an international destination.
I hope to see you here.
