Great and exciting news for those of you looking to travel for your first time and do not have your passports yet,
Rick Steves, the European Travel Expert, is attempting to pursuade Americans to travel abroad with his new ‘No Passport? No Problem!’ program. Beginning now he will pay for any American’s first-time passport if they sign up for one of his 2011 European tours. For thirty years Steves, through his guidebooks and public television and radio shows, has preached a “Back Door-style” travel that brings travelers closer to the people and cultures they go so far to visit. Steves argues that when Americans learn about the world through the pleasurable act of travel,
they return ready to embrace the diversity on the planet rather than fear it. The life-changing value of this kind of travel is most beneficial to those who’ve never ventured beyond our borders. Steves designed ‘No Passport? No Problem!’ to get these “travel virgins” abroad.
This program began on January 31st 2011. Steves will pay for any “travel virgin’s” $135 passport fees when they register for a2011 Rick Steves tour. Not too bad of a deal for first time travelers!
