Travel Talks: Travel as a Political Act

Rick Steves believes that thoughtful travel expands our worldview and shapes how we address the challenges confronting our nation. Having spent four months a year overseas for the last 30 years, Rick feels that travel helps us "challenge truths we were raised to think were self-evident and God-given." In this lecture Rick shares how the other 96 percent of humanity sees our nation, he explores how his social activism has grown naturally out of his travel experiences, and he gives practical tips on how to broaden your global perspective through your travels.
