Rick Steves looks to the future after 18 months of European travel hiatus
Since the Nixon era, Rick Steves spent about 100 days each year in Europe. Between last March and this September, he logged not a minute abroad, even though Europe was always on his mind. While learning about her home north of Seattle, the travel and multimedia personality created public TV shows and hosted virtual events about a world nearly 5,000 miles away. . In June, traditionally the beginning of the peak tourist season, he began accepting bookings for tours departing the following year. Tourists move quickly, making up 95% of the nearly 31,000 spots on about 1,100 group tours from February to December. As for Steves, he’s finally crossed the Atlantic 18 months after an outage and is quickly making up for lost time: This fall, he’s climbing the Alps and stopping by Paris and then returned five weeks later to lead the new guides through Italy and film in Rome, Florence and Athens. His tally for the final quarter of 2021: 30 days.
