It’s Wednesday (Dec. 16) and that means WYCC-TV in Chicago has another lineup of travel programs tonight.

8 p.m. (CST) — “Rick Steves’ Europe” — Rick visits the Burgundy region of France and highlights include a canal barge, a medieval hospice and a modern monastery. I’m a big fan of Rick’s program, but I thought his episodes focusing on France outside of Paris were exceptional.

8:30 p.m. — “Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscopre” — Joseph explores Alaska’s Inside Passage aboard a cruise ship. He’ll stop in Juneau, Skagway and Sitka along with Prince Rupert, B.C.

9 p.m. — “Globe Trekker” — Tonight’s stop is Switzerland. Highlights include Charlie Chaplin’s house in Vevey, golf in Riederalp, Gemini Pass, the Einstein Museum in Bern, military fortresses along Lake Lucerne, Gotthard Pass and Glacier Express.
