Rick Steves' Europe "European Insights"
Airs Tuesday, December 4 at 8:30 PM

Rick Steves grew up in Edmonds, Washington and studied at the University of Washington where he received degrees in Business Administration and European History. But his real education came in Europe -- since 1973 he's spent 120 days a year in Europe. Spending one third of his adult life living out of a suitcase in Europe has shaped his thinking. Today he employs 80 people at his Europe Through the Back Door headquarters where he produces over 50 guidebooks on European travel, the most popular travel series in America on public television, a weekly hour-long national public radio show, and a weekly column syndicated by the Chicago Tribune. Rick Steves lives and works in his hometown of Edmonds, Washington. His office window overlooks his old junior high school.

Rick Steves (ricksteves.com) writes European travel guidebooks and hosts travel shows on public television and public radio. His column runs weekly at seattletimes.com/travel

In Rick Steves' European Insights, a 30-minute collection of never-before-seen clips, Rick brings art and history to life in Pisa, provides a thoughtful assessment of history we can learn from at the Mauthausen Concentration Camp, Hitler's Eagle's Nest in Berchtesgaden, and the Danish Nazi Resistance Museum in Copenhagen -- and brings us up to speed on breathtaking developments in Europe with a look at its ethnic diversity and investment in its infrastructure.
