My husband and I have been to 116 countries and the people and history are what inspire us. We’re getting older so feel sad we really missing a year of our travel time. We compensate by watching your travel shows. Even if we’ve seen them several times we still enjoy them. Thank you for your perspectives and enthusiasm over the years!
- You are a blessing to us! We are watching all of your old Best of Europe shows from home during this time, and they bring us joy! We are hopeful for a better 2021 for all! Looking forward to the day when we can travel again.
- Thanks for sharing Rick. Love al your shows and knowledge. These are trying times in America. Happy 4th and see you on the other side of the pond next year!
- I was in Split, Croatia on the 4th last year! Since 2014, we’ve worn these shirts on the 4th wherever we happen to be in the world. I love traveling. Husband is the more extroverted of us, so he finds us friends wherever we go. Last fall in Mexico. LOL.
- Using our summer sailing. Great way for social distancing. Always have a mask in our pockets.
A difficult year for my little sister & husband who run a large musical group tour company; Grand Tours. They have done the same as your company – cancel all 2020 tours.
I bet your book is so fun! I have travelled around the world twice in the last 6 years (and had plans to be back in Europe this fake..sigh) I am much like you when I travel..it is far more about connecting with local people..getting inside their lives..seeing things from their perspectives than seeing the sights )of course some are not to be missed) I love doing Servas homesteads for that reason and did a lot in New Zealand esp.
We live in Illinois. On our first Rick Steves tour, to Italy, we met a couple from Miami. Somehow we formed an instant connection. We have since taken 3 more Rick Steves tours with them. We have gone to visit them in Miami several times and attended their daughter’s wedding. They have visited us in Chicago. They have become VERY dear friends.
My very social Italian cousins live in Viterbo, Italy and a few years ago we were able to visit in September during La Macchina di Santa Rosa (a UNESCO Heritage event). With our “inside connections” we attended the pre ceremony picnics and met one of the Facchini, the men who carry the 100 foot tall tower, who was a friend of my cousins. I told him “It is an honor to meet you” and it was. We hung out, drank, took a ton of photos. I was mostly speechless during the entire event.
