Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This 49th episode of Travels in Europe With Rick Steves finds the host embarking upon a two-week sojourn through the Alps. On the French side of the mountain range, the tour arrives at the resort of Chamonix before boarding the Glacier Express to Switzerland and the Appenzell. As always happens whenever Rick goes through Alpine territory, viewers are greeted by the familiar sound of cowbells. As the host promises a further foray into the Austrian and Italian alps, the viewers bid their leave, happily anticipating episode 50.
