A traveler can experience a true sense of discovery by venturing "off the beaten path" into places not often visited by the average vacationer. And that's what we're doing on the next Travel with Rick Steves. This week, Rick takes us around the world in an hour, to find out what special arrangements are needed to visit the Galapagos Islands, to learn what the cultural influence of Turkey means for the emerging Central Asia republics, and to experience a road trip from Dallas into the desert southwest of the USA. It's not your average itinerary as we discover adventures "off the beaten path" on the next Travel with Rick Steves.
