Lessons from a Lifetime of Travel

“Travel is intensified living, with maximum thrills per minute. It’s recess, and we need it.” – Rick Steves

Rick Steves is on a mission to help make travel more accessible and meaningful for Americans. Rick Steves’ Europe – the most-watched travel series on public television – and his weekly radio show have become synonymous with fun, engaging, world-broadening travel. Known for his affable humor, the popular host and best-selling author of more than 50 European travel guidebooks shares what he’s learned in 40 years of travel. Steves explains how, by traveling thoughtfully, we can take home the greatest souvenir: a broader perspective.

Books will be available for purchase and signing
