Rick Steves is a phoney!

Jump to last reply

In the summer of 1997, in Bath, England my wife and I saw Rick Steves, the famous PBS European travel guide, buying a Whopper in Burger King. I have photos to prove it!

Isn't it ironic that the man who preaches about getting into the local culture as much as possible is just like the rest of us. You have to admit that McDonalds and Burger King are sometimes a welcome sight after a few weeks of foreign food.

I still love Rick Steves show and books, but I found it quite funny to see him walking into Burger King rather than into a Pub.
