For the last 35 years Rick Steves has been showing Americans how to travel on a budget around Europe. His travel guides, his tour company and now his phenomenal TV show-Europe Through the Back Door-have showcased his charming, winning, almost bumpkin-ish persona that has made him Americarsquo;s favorite travel guide.Throughout these years though-at times subliminally, other times overtly-he has realized that he has been teaching Americans how to travel politically.Travel can be many things. Some choose a sunny break on the beach for a change in weather without leaving their cultural comfort zone. Others chose a life-changing adventure that makes them a cultural hybrid, shakes their self-assuredness, and rearranges their world view. The value of that experience is up to you and is determined by how you choose to travel. You can travel to relax, have funhellip;and learn almost nothing. Or you can travel to broaden your perspectives and learn. Time with a dervish in Turkey can be a cruise-ship entertainment option or a spiritual experience.This book is a guide for those with an appetite to learn. If you make your travels a political act, your vacation can be the most intensely educational time of your life. Rather than coming home fatter, you can come home smarter-with a better understanding of the interconnectedness of todayrsquo;s world and just how our nation fits in. As wersquo;ve learned in the first decade of the 21st century, the challenges that will face our nation through the rest of this new century require a broader and more international approach. Those who make travel a political act come home inspired and better able to help confront these issues; it can also make your life more meaningful, challenging, and fun.
