WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rick Steves yesterday received the Outstanding Friend of Europe Award from EU Ambassador to the U.S. Joao Vale de Almeida.

"Rick is considered by millions of Americans as the nation's foremost expert on European travel," said Ambassador Vale de Almeida during the award presentation at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Noting that Rick Steves' enthusiasm for Europe is contagious, Ambassador Vale de Almeida said that "through his travel guidebooks, presentations, public television series, and travel company, he has not only encouraged Americans to visit Europe as tourists, but also helped them to develop an interest in Europe as a place of history and continuous change. For over three decades Rick Steves has informed Americans about European history, culture, and lifestyles, and actively worked to increase the understanding of the European Union and its powerful role in respecting diversity and promoting peace. He deserves recognition for having contributed to deeper transatlantic ties."
