Journals - Travel as a Political Act - Rick Steves
Arab Spring Videoconference 
On March 19th, students in CITVC got to speak with famous European traveler Rick Steves courtesy of The Virtual School @ Vanderbilt University! We asked him which country was his favorite to visit in Europe, and he said Germany! We were so excited by this because we are having German students visit us next month!

"Rick Steves, author of over 50 European travel guidebooks and host of the public television series, Rick Steves' Europe, believes that thoughtful travel expands our world view and shapes how we address the challenges confronting our nation politically. Rick Steves advocates smart, independent travel. . . . Having spent four months a year overseas for the last 30 years, Rick feel that travel helps us 'challenge truths we were raised to think were self-evident and God-given.' His classes have helped millions of Americans not only enjoy maximum travel thrills per mile, minute, euro . . . but become better citizens of our planet." - Vanderbilt Virtual University

This videoconference encouraged CITVC students to learn how language, art, music, belief systems, and other cultural elements can facilitate global understanding, and cause misunderstandings as well.
