Rick Steves at the “Mezquita" in Córdoba, Spain (RickSteves.com)
Rick Steves—acclaimed for his bestselling guidebooks and public television series—believes there’s more to travel than good-value hotels, great art, and tasty cuisine. The greatest value of travel, he finds, is that it widens our horizons beyond our own hometown. And when we implement that expanded world view, he says, a vacation of cultural immersion can pay off. According to Steves, Americans who travel thoughtfully can have the time of their lives and come home smarter, with a better understanding of the interconnectedness of today’s world.

In an illustrated program, he explains how to travel with a goal of good stewardship and a responsibility to be an ambassador to, and for, the entire planet. Drawing from lessons he learned while exploring Europe, Central America, Asia, and the Middle East, Steves outlines how by traveling thoughtfully you can make your trip an investment in a better world and take home the greatest souvenir: a broader perspective.
