 This past weekend, my friend Laura and I went to Kansas City, Missouri to listen to Rick Steves  speak about travel.


Now, I love traveling !    I also love  Rick Steves Travel Guide Books and his Television Travel Show.  Rick’s Travel  Books truly are  a complete guide  for  anyone  traveling in Europe on their own.   So this was my chance to see Rick in person. But I also really wanted to meet him face to face.  The plan?  Make sure Laura and I stood out in the crowd.  So with perserverance ,  along with wearing our custom  “I Love Traveling with Rick Steves” T- shirts  – it  paid off!!!  We got to meet and talk with Rick, have our guide books signed and have a photo op with him! What a thrill to meet Rick and see for ourselves what a friendly, engaging and entertaining person he is.


Then to top it all off, Rick also took photos of the three  of us with his own iphone and  Rick included a  photo of the three of us  in his USA Road Trip Blog, Day 10 and writing ” two women drove four hours from St. Louis for my Kansas City talk and wore T-shirts declaring their love for traveling “through the back door” with my guidebooks”.

We also met, Keith,  his  Road Trip driver and also a  Rick Steves Tour Director. Keith was also friendly and told us how great it was like to work with Rick. I told him to keep an eye out for  my resume…..
