Bryson, Bill "Neither here nor there. Travels in Europe"


Bryson, Bill "Neither here nor there. Travels in Europe" - 1991

After having read a few books by this great authors about other parts of this world, I just had to see what he had to say about the part of this world that I know best, Europe. He visits Norway, France, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Turkey, so quite a few countries to give you an overall view about this continent. If you know Europe, it's an interesting tour to take with an outsider, if you don't know Europe, you can discover it with this book.

From the back cover:
"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."

I love all of Bill Bryson's books. Find a link to my reviews here.
