So, you’ve caught that travel bug. That’s awesome! But… well, maybe right now funds are low, or time is tight. Maybe a global pandemic has you isolating at home. Does that mean you have to miss out on some amazing scenery, experiences and adventures? Heck, no! They may just be a little different… experienced from the comfort of your couch! Here are 12 shows to stream if you are missing travel!

  • Rick Steves’ Europe
  • Look, when it comes to travel, Rick Steves is THE MAN. Join him as he wanders through Europe, discovering the most interesting places the continent has to offer. You can watch the series FREE on the Rick StevesTravel Website.
