The sea helps define two destinations Rick discusses with his guests on this week's Travel with Rick Steves.
Netherlands is one of the real powerhouses of Europe, despite its small geography. You'll find industrial innovation, Spring flowers on a massive scale, and a role model for how to live together in a crowded modern society. Tour guide Rolinka Bloeming takes listener calls to discuss what an American can expect from a visit to the Netherlands.
David Stanley has written the definitive guidebook to the islands of the South Pacific, collectively known as Oceania. He provides an overview to this often-overlooked part of the planet, including how they're anticipating the effects of global warming on their island nations.
