The San Diego Diplomacy Council and the WorldView Project present Travel as a Political Act, a Talk-About Event featuring Steve Smith and Jake Heilbrunn.
Steve Smith is best known as Rick’s France tour guide in several episodes of Rick Steves’ Europe on public television, and as the co-author of Rick’s France and Paris guidebooks. His love for the farmhouse he and his wife renovated in Burgundy — where he lived for several years — is rivaled only by his passion for Volkswagen Westphalia campers. Steve spends his summers researching guidebooks for Rick Steves’ Europe. When he’s in the US, Steve manages Tour Planning and Guide Services, helping send tens of thousands of happy travelers to Europe each year. Here is an interview with Steve about his work:https://www.ricksteves.com/tours/guides/steve-smith
