The “People Power” Travel Superbook: Book 15. Western Europe Travel Guide By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $4.00
This is a book of basic contact information for Europe in general plus the specific countries including travel bookings, hotels, events, tourist attractions, car rentals, restaurants, etc. It... More > doesn’t include Scandinavia or Eastern Europe. Europe is the number one tourist destination in the world. People are interested in the historic charm of the Old World. It will never go out of style. The biggest mistakes people make when traveling is that they don't make up a plan beforehand and pack way too much stuff. Pack light. You're there for the experience. Don't travel with downer people who don't want to do the same things you do. Onetime I went to England with some relatives and buddies who just wanted to see the nightlife. I wanted to see Stonehenge, the war museum and a few other places so I ended up going alone. They didn't even care about Stonehenge. I learned my lesson. If you're travelling to see a culture, don't travel with one-dimensional, mook hedonists. Go to #914 at the library.< Less
Le Chapeau a disparu By Stephen Coley

What followed was a 4000km romp around Europe, through 7 very different countries in the... More > space of 19 very eventful days. This is an account of what happened to the 4½ friends during those 19 days. The language is a little ripe in places, but it needed to be (mostly). The tantrums of a certain 2½ year old may also feature quite heavily throughout this book, but they did happen fairly often (bless him). Besides the expletives and temper tantrums this book is an account of miserly French breakfasts, a very temperamental Sat-Nav called Natalie, accommodation problems in Milan, car problems in Germany and without question the most disorganised ‘monument’ you’ll ever see. There’s also a hair-raising drive through the Alps, a bit of surreal culture in Spain and the unexpected delights that are German Mini Dickmanns! Oh, and just a few references to my beloved, rather shabby straw hat.< Less
