Rick's Travel Tips
Explore Europe confidently, efficiently and safely using these travel tips.
"Croatia: Adriatic Delights" - A fascinating land with a hard-fought history in a complex corner of Europe, Croatia is emerging as one of Europe's top destinations. Sampling the very best of Croatia, we start by exploring the fabled Dalmatian Coast from dramatic Dubrovnik to crusty Adriatic island ports.
"Norway's West" - For Scandinavia's most thrilling sightseeing, we sail under towering fjord cliffs, hike on powerful glaciers, and find surviving traditions in remote farm hamlets.
"Spain's Costa del Sol" - Here in southern Spain, we explore Granada's Alhambra — Europe's last and greatest Moorish palace, and we soak up the sun on a Costa del Sol beach. We check out British-influenced Gibraltar and feed its famous monkeys.
Rick's Travel Philosophy:
Travel is freedom...one of the last great sources of legal adventure. Travel is intensified living, with maximum thrills per minute. It's recess, and we need it. Experiencing the real Europe requires catching it by surprise, going casual...Through the Back Door.
