    "Classic Rick"

    The often kitchy and well known PG travel writter reads his classic route through Europe with tales from his first experiences in Europe. I like Rick for his simple and honest way of breaking down travel in Europe. If you are a fan of his Public TV series then you will like this and if your not, you will be suprised. For dreamers and travelers alike.

    "The Real Rick Steves"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book for folks that are interested in purchasing any of his other travel books, as this book will really puts a lot of what he says in perspective. I kind of wish I had read this book before I even started reading his travel guides and it would have made a little more sense on why he travels the way he does, and thinks the way he does as far as traveling is concerned, and why he provides his readers with certain recommendations in his travel guides. After listening to this audiobook it will be certain that you won't make many traveling mistakes Rick did in his earlier years. I titled my review as the Real Rick Steves because I think you will get to know him a lot more after listening to this audiobook.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved all the stories and adventures he experienced which is most of the book :)


    What about Rick Steves’s performance did you like?

    His narration was spot on and so Rick Steves if you know how quirky he can be.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it took me 2 separate sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a few times I completely lost interest in part of the storytelling but it was only about 10 minutes at a time. But, overall, I loved the book and plan to listen to it again right before I go to Europe.
