Steves's genial personality shines throughout this tape as he covers a wide variety of places, people, and times. He shows why his advice to get to know an area through meeting people is a good idea. Whether talking about Denmark or Italy or England, he brings people and his experiences to life and readily conveys to the listener why he has found European travel so rewarding. In discussing interesting people he met years ago, he usually also gives updates on their current status. Steves finds joy not only in the great accomplishments of architecture and art but also in old neighborhoods, local people, transportation, and food. This is economy travel, not first class, and his down-to-earth approach will be of interest to many travelers. Practical travel tips are sprinkled throughout. Steves is well spoken and has a clear, comfortable voice; most listeners will appreciate his obvious enthusiasm. Recommended for libraries whose clientele has an interest in European travel and/or in Steves's works. Carolyn Alexander, Brigadoon Lib., Salinas, CA

This selection of excerpts from Rick Steves's account of a road trip across Europe is more of an essay on the author's love of travel than a travelogue. The stories recall his first overseas trip with his parents, his years of traveling on the cheap throughout the continent, and his start as a travel lecturer, a career move that spawned guidebooks and a TV series. His good humored tales are told from the perspective of a confident and seasoned, yet still wide-eyed, traveler. I wasn't a fan of Rick Steves before listening to this audiobook, but I found it enjoyable and fascinating nonetheless.
