Rick Steves' Personal Travel Journal Now Available
An insider's look into the adventures of the popular European travel teacher
Edmonds, WA, November 14, 2007 — Travel blogging is a growing phenomenon, and travel writer, Rick Steves, is a happy participant in this trend. This autumn marks the end of the second season of his popular online travel journal Rick Steves: Blog Gone Europe (blog.ricksteves.com). It goes a step beyond Steves' best-selling guidebooks. It is a candid behind-the-scenes peek at Europe and life — Rick Steves style. Blog Gone Europe is enjoyed by an active community of readers because it answers the widespread question, "What is it like to be Rick Steves?".
However, in a quest to make European travel accessible and meaningful to Americans, Steves took his blog to a new level by creating a print version complete with color photos of his favorite destinations. "Since writing my first guidebook in 1980, my mission has been to make Europe accessible. The printed version of my blog, Dancing with Europa, is just another way to bring the splendors of Europe to everyone." When requests for the inaugural version of Dancing with Europa topped at 35,000, Steves knew he had done just that.
Now that 2007 is coming to a close, a 63-paged collection of new blog highlights, Dancing with Europa II, is available for free for a limited time only! From monasteries in Montenegro to hot peat soaks in Trebon, this insider's look into the life of Steves is an opportunity for even the technically-challenged traveler to participate in his blogging adventures. Your readers can get a free copy of Dancing with Europa II while supplies last, visit blog.ricksteves.com or call 425-608-4212.
