Rick Steves interviews Rolf for NPR (and podcast)

This past weekend, I was the subject of an hour-long interview on Rick Steves’ radio show on NPR. Though Rick is primarily known as a guru for independent vacations in Europe, his expertise comes from a vagabonding background, and he has deep travel experience in other parts of the world. And, considering that he had obviously read my book very carefully, I’d have to say that this was the most interesting and relevant interview I’ve done since the debut of Vagabonding four years ago.

If you missed the interview on NPR, you can still listen to it through the Rick Steves website — either as a podcast, or as streaming audio.

    I live in Seattle and loved your show. Rick was my first hero backpacking with europe thru the back door in 1987 after visiting a host family in Toulon at age 18. 23 years later, that friend from Toulon and his american wife live now live in Seattle just live me and my BF. They left in March with their 2 kids to vagabond around Laos, Thai, Nepal, Reunion, etc. I wish i knew of your book when i vagabonded thru Asia last year. I guess i need to read your book and plan to vagabond again soon. Thanks for getting that “spark” going again.

    Good to hear your voice. Your interview reignited our long-term travel urge. We just taped the huge world map to the wall as we begin the preliminary planning. Need to review your book, too.
    We are currently in a grandbaby hiatus.
    Good luck with PAA this year. Carol and Alan (2005 alums)
