Rick Steves' European Insights
Airs Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 11:30 p.m. on KPBS TV
Rick Steves advocates smart, affordable, perspective-broadening travel. As host and writer of the popular public television series RICK STEVES' EUROPE, and best-selling author of 40 European travel books, he encourages Americans to travel as "temporary locals." He helps American travelers connect much more intimately and authentically with Europe — and Europeans — for a fraction of what mainstream tourists pay.
"Rick Steves' European Insights" - In this special 30-minute collection of never-before-seen clips, "Rick Steves' European Insights" brings art and history to life in Pisa, provides a thoughtful assessment of history we can learn from at the Mauthausen Concentration Camp, Hitler's Eagle's Nest in Berchtesgaden, and the Danish Nazi Resistance Museum in Copenhagen — and brings us up to speed on breathtaking developments in Europe, with a look at its ethnic diversity and investment in its infrastructure.
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.
