Travelers who “travel as a political act” can have the time of their lives and come home smarter, with a better understanding of today’s world. In his inspirational lecture, Rick explains how, when we venture thoughtfully out of our comfort zone, we gain an empathy for the other 96 percent of humanity and come home with the greatest of all souvenirs: a broader perspective.

  1. This is so 'spot on.' As a fellow world traveler, I appreciate this speech so much. I wish more Americans would listen to it. Thank you, Rick.

  2. Awesome videos! I've been watching Rick Steves' travel shows for the past several years. Travelling has always been my favourite ways to see the USA and the world.

  3. Rick Steves, better titles: "Travel as a Politically Correct Act." Too bad Steves could not have stuck to travel tips and feels he has to "educate us" along the lines of his personal ideological politics.

  4. @15:58 Deja vu, isn't it? It seems mankind has learned nothing from late-1930's Germany, particularly when it comes to the current palaver we have with the POTUS

  5. Americans would be able to travel more if we could get off work, employers don’t give us months off for vacation

  6. Did the breakage of the European Union what with Brexist in the UK a result of immigration or is it just another excuse? Poland, Austria say they want to preserve their heritage…do they have a point or are we just peeking into their window as a cautious observer? Donald Trump was elected for the same fears. Wars in 3rd world countries leave refugees..fact. The UK took in indians and Sik as immigrants nearly a hundred years ago and no one there had a problem then because they were colonies. Now they are ingrained into the UK.

  7. I have always enjoyed your programs, Rick….but, this REALLY hits the nail on the head! This is such a powerful, well thought out perspective on our global connection as human beings. If only our "leaders" could follow this common sense approach to society and foreign relations. WELL DONE.
