Waiting patiently for travel to ramp up again? Enjoy five minutes of goofy, giddy travel moments from our Season 11 blooper reel (a Rick Steves’ Europe TV tradition). I hope these flubs brighten your day as my TV crew and I ferry you from the Alps to Egypt and beyond.

In this clip, I get tongue-tied in Cairo, bark like a bear in Castelrotto, mimic a cock’s crow and get upstaged by a galloping donkey in Ethiopia. Watch me yodel up a storm in Switzerland, hone my dance moves on the Nile, and battle errant cowlicks from Ethiopia to Rome.

Screwing up repeatedly with the camera rolling, I’ve learned that if we’re not making bloopers, we’re not having fun. And if we’re not having fun, we’re not making good TV.

Rick Steves’ Europe Season 11 features the Austrian, Italian, Swiss, and French Alps, two episodes on Egypt, and one on Ethiopia. In addition, we’ve produced a special retrospective episode called “Why We Travel.” Watch the full season at https://www.ricksteves.com/tv-programmers/season/eleven
