“You know, 10 sounds like a better number to end on than nine did, so I think so,” Lauer said when asked about letting the segment go. “I think we’ve had a great time. We’ve been to 51 places… around the world.”
Consider it a Brett Favre style retirement, though. “If we’re not completely done with it, we’re certainly going to rest it
for a good long while and maybe revisit it with a twist at some future
date,” Lauer says.
The most memorable moment of his most recent trip, Lauer says,was in Jungfraujoch, Switzerland. “That reveal on Thursday from the top of Europe – 11,745 feet up – just the trip up there was ridiculous,” he says. “But to stand at that spot and look out over the glaciers and the Swiss Alps – that, I think, was my favorite moment of the week.”
