Bryson brings his unique brand of humour to travel writing as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet and heads for Europe.  Travelling with Stephen Katz--also his wonderful sidekick in A Walk in the Woods--he wanders from Hammerfest in the far north, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia.  As he makes his way round this incredibly varied continent, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before with caustic hilarity.

A pleasure - Bryson's apt observations and low-key humour are such fun to read, and it's great to get his perspective on places in Europe that we have been - and others we haven't. Read full review

No indication in this whingeing, whiney, sweary mess of tired stereotypes that the author would go on to be a fabulous, amusing and clever travel writer. Read full review
