Yes, the big game is tonight (Nov. 2) — Game 7 of the World Series between Cleveland and Chicago.
I will be at a watering hole watching it, but I will enjoy WYCC-TV in Chicago’s Wednesday night lineup of travel TV programs later on and it’s a good trip to take!
7:30 p.m. — “Travels With Darley” — This week’s episode explores Northern England and Wales. A famous Harry Potter film location is visited along with landscape that inspired the writings of the Bronte sisters and the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Saltaire and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.
8 p.m. — “Rick Steves’ Europe” — Rick is Bulgaria this week and takes a look at ancient Thracian tombs, medieval Orthodox Christian monasteries and Soviet-era momuments. He also explores Bulgarian contemporary culture.
8:30 p.m. — “Travelscopre” — Put on your skis as Joseph Rosendo visits the resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland with all its five-star hotels and high-end shops. He’ll also trek up the Rhaetian Alps.
9 p.m. — “Globe Trekker” — The season 14 premiere is called the “Mumbai City Guide.” Stops on this tour of the Indian city include Dharavi slum, which was made famous by the movie “Slumdog Millionaire”, the fish mark at Sassoon Docks and the luxurious Taj Palace Hotel. See also the sea fort at Murud Janjira and an open-air laundromat.
UNTIL NEXT TIME. . .
