This March, join Rick for a 30-minute celebration of European culture in Rick Steves' Europe with Abandon.
Following the hugely successful 30-minute pledge special European Insights, Europe with Abandon will weave together three high-powered modules of travel fun with three short, compelling pledge breaks.
The modules will highlight the quintessence of European travel: great food, fun-loving people, and hands-on experiences. From savoring seafood fresh from the fjord, to the riveting beat of flamenco in Andalucía, to celebrating a new era of hope in war-scarred Bosnia — this special will show how Europeans embracing life with abandon can inspire us to get the most out of our lives as well.
Rick will host each break with enticing gifts, a strong mission statement, and an inspirational call to action. This appeal will show you how your support of public television is important for the fabric of our society (and flat out good citizenship). This half hour special will be both inspirational and enjoyable. Hold on to your hats, Rick Steves' Europe with Abandon — which is produced by KCTS and free to APT subscribing stations — promises to be another strong Rick Steves pledge event.
