Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every year thousands of young people from America, Britain and Australia head to Europe for the trip of a Lifetime. This eclectic, contemporary anthology drawn from literary magazines, websites and backpacking newsgroups records the trials and tribulations of these modern-day Marco Polos, who, armed with little more than a newly acquired backpack and guidebook in one hand and a Eurail pass in the other, embark on a journey that has become a de facto rite of passage into the adult world. From the company that helped start the trend, this is a funny, touching and sometimes mad collection of first-hand experiences that bring new life to a well-told tale: from snapshots at the Eiffel Tower and yard-glasses at Oktoberfest to Monopoly-board adventures in London and sangria-fuelled seduction in Spain.

Synopsis:

From the company that kick-started the trend, a funny, touching and mad collection of first-time European backpacking experiences that bring new life to a well-told tale.
