Travel as a Political Act

travel_politicalCanwest News ran a great piece by John Mackie on Rick Steves, author of Travel as a Political Act, which has recently released. This  post comes from the Victoria Times-Colonist.  I found this tidbit about Steves particularly interesting:

. . . his mom grew up in White Rock, her family was from Edmonton, and Europeans often ask him if he’s Canadian because he has a bit of a hoser accent. Steve was in Canada recently to speak at The Great Outdoors Show in Abbotsford, B.C.

Well, actually, he was in Canada in March, but the book is available now.
