    Can't disagree with this. Of course, learning about history and places. but to me, all the traveling is learning about people. Cultures of course. But also reinforcing how similar-not different- we all are.

    you couldn't give me all the money and the riches in the world to step foot on that land.Even though john wesley, Martin Luther, Iranius, Colombo 'Paul and other great apostles come up over there but they all defied that thing and died as martyers you hypocrites.

    All your videos are really cool. No matter how much you look at it, it never separates. I watch very much ….. keep doing this. I look forward to watching all your videos. Thank you very much. I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart

    This matches so much with my view. I am a person who would obviously travel for history: Ruins, Castles, Fortresses, Palaces, Temples, Cathedrals, Abbeys, Chapels, Churches, Monasteries, Mosques, Burial Grounds, Museums and the Architecture. I have only seen India, since I am from there. I am yet to see the rest of the world.

    Thank you, Mr. Steves. Your show was a favorite of my mother's. She loved both travel and learning, but the former was cut off when she got cancer. We looked forward to 5:30, when we knew your show would be on. It distracted from her pain and illness, letting her keep learning, which kept her going. Thanks for the extra time that gave me with her.

    Speaking as a European (well, I WAS until this year 🤒), it's a pleasant surprise to see an American who "gets it".
    Unfortunately our perception of 'Muricans over here is all too often fat, loud people doing Europe in a weekend.
    You do a lot to dispel the stereotype.
    Hell, you teach me stuff I didn't know about where I live. 😁

    Honestly, as we all cannot travel, it really gives you a great appreciation of all the wonders we can see , learn, cherish, and indulge in. This is what is so grand about travel

    I've had the joy of reliving trips I've taken abroad (Stonehenge 1975, Amsterdam 1990) by watching your programs on PBS. This YouTube channel is a great source for tips and tricks to "keep on traveling!" 😷👍
