Rick Steves Parody

Rick Steves’ distinctive walk, aviator eyeglasses, and slightly-slurred alliterative style of speaking, makes him the perfect candidate for a parody.

    Don’t know who that guy is, or of his guidebooks, but your performance stands on its own. Well done.

    Love your layout, by the way.

    Very clean. Very nice indeed.

    Past loading, too.

    Welcome to videoblogging.

    That should be ‘fast loading’.

    OMG your Rick Steves Parody totally cracked me up! Too funny. I’ve never been able to stomach that guy–obviously you’ve studied him closely 🙂 Great job.

    Pretty funny.
    We’ve seen a couple of these. Reminds me that imitation is just one form of flattery. We’ll keep traveling!

    I met this guy at the grocery store today when I was parking my 1964 Vespa 150 Sport at QFC. I didn’t know I was talking to somebody famous!

    I’ve bookmarked http://www.vespadiaries.com at Reddit.com so my friends can see it too. I used “The Vespa Diaries, discovery and enjoyment of the Italian lifestyle” because it was a good title.

    Pretty darn funny. Rick’s books are not bad for the first time visitor. We used him sometimes but often branched out away from the mainstream towns he focuses on. His hotel recommendations always worked well for us.

    Some sights in Italy just cannot avoid lines and crowds, alas. The Sistine Chapel was so crowded in 2009 that we felt relieved just to get out of there. I’ve since seen a great online virtual tour of the Chapel that lets you spend as much time as you want to enjoy that art.
