Guidebook author and travel TV host Rick Steves is America’s most respected authority on European travel. He advocates smart, affordable, perspective-broadening travel and is outspoken on the need for Americans to fit better into our planet by broadening our perspectives through travel. As host and writer of the popular public television series Rick Steves’ Europe, and best-selling author of over 50 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. He entertained and enlightened a sold out crowd, here in Alaska, to share his views on “Connecting with the World Through Travel.”
