Rick Steves Reflects on the Current Travel Alert for Europe

Avalon Travel author Rick Steves recently wrote about the current Travel Alert for Europe on his blog, Rick Steves: Blog Gone Europe.

Steves argues that violence in the U.S. far outweighs the dangers American travelers could experience in Europe:

“Here at Europe Through the Back Door, this is our busiest season for tours. We have thousands of travelers in Europe this fall. My son is there in Barcelona as I type. I’d be there tomorrow if I didn’t have work to do here in the statistically much more dangerous USA.”

What do you think of Rick’s post? How do you feel about traveling to Europe right now? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
