Impulse Buys

How could you resist Rick Steves dressed as a reindeer? 

No doubt (...no doubt) you've heard about Rick Steves, the travel guru. He is a specialist on European travel and has probably experienced more of Britain than I ever will. I got his England Guidebook for Christmas last year and devoured it, taking copious notes and using it to determine my highest priority sights. I signed up for Rick's travel updates and have looked around his travel store (lusting after a particular carry-on bag which is his trademark), but hadn't yet bought anything from him until I got an email about his Holiday Sale. 

Let's just say I got a little carried away. Here's a look at my cart:
Dare I tell you what a bargain I got? $104.22. The bag alone originally cost $99.95! That's not even to mention that I got Rick's Travel Skills DVD and Smithsonian Magazine: Travels with Rick Steves absolutely free! If you have some travel items on your wish list, I would highly recommend heading over to this store before the sale runs out. As for me, I now feel that much close to realizing my travel dreams, just holding my guidebooks and carry-on bag.



  1. I enjoy watching Rick Steves on my pbs channels. I've only seen one of his shows in England, but of course I thought of you when I was watching it. :-)

    1. That's one of the few regrets I have about not having television, no PBS!

      It's great to know that you thought of me, Judeann; thanks for commenting :)
