Author Biography

Rick Steves is on a mission: to help make European travel accessible and meaningful for Americans. Rick has spent four months every year since 1973 exploring Europe. He's researched and written 30 travel guidebooks and also writes and hosts the public television series Rick Steves' Europe. With the help of his hardworking staff of 60 at Europe Through the Back Door, Rick organizes and leads tours of Europe and offers an information-packed Web site (www.ricksteves.com). Rick, his wife (and favorite travel partner) Anne, and their two teenage children, Andy and Jackie, call Edmonds, just north of Seattle, home. Jan (Honza) Vihan grew up roaming the Czech countryside in search of the Wild West. Once the borders opened, he set off for South Dakota. His journey took him to Tibet, India, and Honduras, where he contributed to several travel guides. Unable to survive without Jara Cimrman and Czech beer for too long, he returned to the Czech Republic. Honza lives in Prague with his grandmother, teaches Chinese at Charles University, and leads Rick Steves' tours through Eastern Europe.
