Consult with me

Diana Lambdin Meyer and her husband Bruce, who shot most of the images featuring Kansas City, moved to Kansas City not long after the I-70 World Series, that memorable event of 1985 when Diana's beloved St. Louis Cardinals lost the championship to the Kansas City Royals. But for more than 30 years, Bruce has stood behind a television camera at Kauffman Stadium and cheered with the rest of the city with that World Championship in 2015. Bruce and Diana have learned to love the cow town for all its quirkiness and sophistication and everything in between. They are both self-employed in photography and journalism, both members of the Society of American Travel Writers. Diana was named 2015 Mark Twain Travel Writer of the Year by the Midwest Travel Writers Association. They travel around the world on assignment, but nothing is better than an assignment that allows them to feature K.C.

    Who would you choose as a seatmate on a cross-continential road trip?

    George Clooney – of course. He would surely be a great conversationalist and always fun with jokes or pranks – my kind of guy. And if the scenery gets too boring, then he makes his own scenery.

    Or Ken Burns. I adore Ken Burns. I could listen to the melody of the words he strings together on a road trip around the world without taking a breath. He is brilliant.

    What is the most important thing you've learned from traveling?

    People are the most interesting, amazing, adorable creatures on the planet. Wherever we are, people amaze me, for good, bad and ugly. And we’re all the same, no matter what continent or political party or education or upbringing, we are all pretty much the same creatures wherever we exist on this planet.

    Have you ever been somewhere that was so bad you couldn't write about it?

    Yes, but because other people seem to think it’s the greatest experience ever and I’m not for publicly bashing a destination or attraction, I won’t name it here. Just my husband, son and I remember the middle of the night exit from a place that had diapers tacked to the ceiling to catch the rain as it poured in. Seriously. I’m not making that up.

    What's your most exciting or surprising travel experience?

    We’ve been so blessed to have several to choose from. Bruce and I rented a camper van to tour New Zealand’s South Island. It was fabulous and wished we had stayed longer.

    We also had the opportunity to return to Vietnam, at least it was a return for Bruce after his first visit courtesy of the U.S. Army. It’s a beautiful country with extraordinary people.

    My sister and I traveled through France and Belgium tracing our grandfather’s journey through World War I. It was extremely emotional and so enlightening.

    Travel indeed makes you see and understand the world differently.
