Rick Steves defines travel as “intensified living, with maximum thrills per minute.”

Steves, a world famous travel writer, tells his audiences that travel not only allows for individuals to experience freedom, but it also cultivates understanding between cultures.

Steves is coming to Roanoke College on March 12 to give a lecture titled, “A Calling to Travel,” that will address his approach to traveling the world. Free tickets are required for the presentation.

Because of the popularity of the event, Steves’ 7:30 p.m. lecture is sold out. However in response to the demand, Steves will speak for a second 4 p.m. presentation on March 12 in Olin Theater.

For many frequent travelers, Steves is the go-to source on traveling the world. He has sold more than 10 million travel guidebooks and hosts the “Rick Steves in Europe” television show each week on the Public Broadcasting Service.

Tickets for Steves’ 4 p.m. talk can be picked up with a maroon card at the Olin Hall box office from 1 p.m-4 p.m. There is a limit of two tickets per person.

Steves’ appearance is sponsored by the Robert D. Benne Center for Religion and Society.
