Rick Steves, public television host and author of over 50 guidebooks including the travel skills handbook, shares lessons he’s learned from a lifetime of travel. His entertaining, information-packed 90-minute slideshow lecture will teach you all the latest on stretching your travel dollar, avoiding crowds, packing smart, and eating and sleeping well. When he’s ripped off on the road, he celebrates, happy to go home and teach his traveling students about the latest scam. Learn from his mistakes rather than your own. After spending a third of his adult life living out of a rucksack in Europe, Rick knows exactly how you can enjoy maximum travel thrills for every mile, minute, and dollar in your next adventure.
