Rome to Barcelona with Leland Conway

Dear KHOW friends and family,

My wife, Tabatha, and I have always focused on adventure as a couple. We’ve made traveling to new places, meeting new people, and having new and ever more epic experiences a centerpiece of our marriage and our lives! That is why she and I are super excited to invite our KHOW listener family on the trip of a lifetime!

We are going to see amazing sights, eat some of the world’s most delicious food, and make memories together that will last forever – all facilitated by one of the top cruise and tour companies in the world and all in the lap of luxury on one of the newest and most advanced ships in the Celebrity cruise line!

From Italy to France, to Spain, you will see the Mediterranean and southern Europe in style!

Come with us on an epic trip – for an absolutely epically low price – and let’s go explore the world together!

Best regards,

Leland and Tabatha Conway
