I hope everyone is staying safe, sane and healthy through all this. I know many of us have had to cancel or defer our plans for travel this year. I myself was scheduled to go back to Vienna and Poland and had to cancel this trip.
One way I’ve dealt with this disappointment have been rewatching some of my favorite Rick Steves videos, vicariously experiencing the sights, sounds and tastes of Europe and dreaming about future trips. I doubt I am alone in doing this. But some of the videos - well, they are quite old. Some places deserve a revisit. And some of my favorite places are not given enough time, or ignored completely.
So let’s help Rick out! When he gets back to Europe with the rest of us, what places do you want covered in the next season of Rick Steves Europe? What shows or specials do YOU want to see? I thought this might be a fun way to think about Europe, even if we can’t go there physically.
I’ll start. I want more Poland videos. As it stands now, there is one show, covering Krakow, Auschwitz and Warsaw, and it is from 2004! Poland has changed so much in the last 16 years and deserves an updated show. Krakow and Warsaw each have enough to warrant their own episodes, as does Gdansk. I’d love to see the Bialowieza Forest covered, perhaps in an episode about eastern Poland? Which could also include Lublin, Zamosc and other smaller cities and towns?
