Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on June 7, 2021. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.
This special edition of Monday Night Travel sets up Rick's brand-new, two-hour public television special, Europe Awaits. Our theme: places that are good for your soul to visit post-COVID — destinations where you can connect with charming cultures and engrossing nature on your own terms. Rick will explain the post-COVID appeal of these places: Santorini, with its dramatic white-washed towns perched cliff-side as if designed to catch the sunset; Mount Etna, where you can climb an active volcano and witness the power of nature; Nazaré, where you can "go local," Portuguese-style, in the home of the world's biggest and most prized surf; the hill towns of Italy, where you can find that perfect corner to keep your head above the flood of the 21st century; Bucharest, Romania's bold and virtually unknown capital city; and Dartmoor, a land of stony reminders of civilizations past and wild ponies loping through the mist.
