Television Host Visits BSC

Posted: Updated:

A popular travel writer and television host is in Bismarck today to share what he has learned during his more than 30-years of traveling the world.

Rick Steves, who has hosted the series "Rick Steves' Europe" for the last 15-years on Public Broadcasting System, says traveling has changed his perspective on how he views America's place in the world.

He hopes to share those views, and why he thinks travel is important to the public at a series of talks at Bismarck State College today.

"It's really important that we go to different countries. Maybe even go to places which we think are our enemies. So, it makes it more difficult for their country's propaganda to demonize us because they know that we're nice people. And also when we go to those places it makes it tough for our government to demonize them. We're all different, and we all got to share this planet, none of us are going to go away, and when we travel we can realize that we can figure this out," says Steves. 

He will be speaking again tonight in the Energy Center at BSC at 7:30. The event is free and open to the public.
