Thank you Rick

Thanks for putting these together Rick

A change of focus

Love Rick and been loyally watching and listening for years, but have little/no interest in u.s. destinations…sure I’ve traveled around the u.s. a lot but I come to Rick for Europe, where I prefer to spend my vacation time. Also not loving the travel-adjacent topics: I really want practical travel information on European destinations, not reasons to scuba dive, or a writer’s discussion of his life in Cambodia, etc

Ugh

It’s getting very preachy
