Episode 49: Andy Steves talks travel for a new generation
You may be familiar with Rick Steves, the travel guidebook writer, tour company operator and TV show host. Now his son Andy Steves is offering up his own brand of travel, with tips and tours for a new generation.
In this episode of AP Travel’s weekly podcast “Get Outta Here,” host Beth Harpaz, the Associated Press Travel editor, talks to Andy Steves about his guidebook “Andy Steves’ Europe: City-Hopping on a Budget,” and his company, Weekend Student Adventures. Andy Steves also shares some of his strategies for travel, and talks about what it was like growing up as Rick Steves’ son.
New episodes of “Get Outta Here!” are published every Wednesday. Host Beth J. Harpaz is travel editor for The Associated Press, a volunteer Big Apple Greeter and a licensed tour guide in her native New York City. She recently completed a quest to visit all 50 states.
Before becoming travel editor, where most of the news -- thank goodness -- is about happy people going on nice vacations, Beth covered politics, disasters and all manner of mayhem for the AP. And not to reveal her age, but she also worked for several newspapers way back in the 20th century and even wrote three books.
She does not own wheeled luggage but instead carries her belongings around the world in an ancient backpack and various tote bags.
