Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose "Switzerland: Quest for the Sublime" Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Mon, May 4, 2009 -- 9:00 AM

Switzerland - a country of great peaks, waterfalls, glaciers and grand scenery - served as the birthplace of adventure tourism, the wellspring of ecotourism and an inspiration for organized tours into the wild. In his latest travel special, adventurer Richard Bangs sets off for old-world Europe, and explores the origins of adventure travel and searches for what philosophers and poets of the past called "the sublime." Bangs' quest to unearth the true meaning of "sublime" begins in the heart of Switzerland: Lucerne. Later, he travels to the chic winter resort of St. Moritz, climbs aboard the famous Glacier Express train and heads to Zermatt and experiences the rapture of the Matterhorn.
