Neither Here Nor There...


Neither Here Nor There by Bill Bryson
As I am going to be traveling to England for a few weeks in May, I thought it only fitting that I get into the Eurotrip frame of mind by picking up Bryson's travelogue across Europe.
Bryson, half travel writer and half comedian, decided to recreate his 1973 backpack trip across Europe with stops ranging from Stockholm to Rome to Istanbul. He doesn't sugarcoat or gloss over his findings, but he does see humor in his travels.
A quick and absorbing read - perfect for getting into the spirit of travel again!
Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Bryson himself. It took time to get used to his voice, but I eventually enjoyed the recording/
