Excellent event! If you have a passion for travel, take advantage of the opportunity to listen to Rick Steves. He brings a humorous perspective to our global challenges of today, and was kind enough to speak to each of us during the book signing after his talk. Would recommend to anyone wit the travel bug-- or anyone who wants to catch the travel bug.
PBS Travel host Rick Steves shares why traveling should be more than just a relaxing trip. Spending four months a year overseas, Steves believes that thoughtful travel can expand our world view and shape how we address the political challenges that confront our country.
Steves will discuss how the other 96% of humanity view our country and how we should “challenge truths we were raised to think were self evident” to become citizens of the planet.
