Bill Bryson has the ability to make me laugh out loud. His observations are keen. The lure of Europe has remained for Bryson, but now he looks at Europe with the eyes of a middle-aged man and not a pot-smoking teenager. As always, very funny.

His description of trying to order bread in a bakery in France made me laugh so hard I had tears in my eyes.

I love travel books and Bill Bryson is my favorite travel author. I've been to Europe twice and this book hits the nail on the head. One of the funniest books I've ever read!

An account of the travel writer's voyage through many European countries in his attempt to recreate le grand tour of his youth. Bill Bryson is a witty, if sometimes whiny, writer. I really enjoyed this book.

Bill Bryson is outrageously funny. He begins his tale by retracing his footsteps on a previous journey during the early seventies. Starting in Scandanavia there is absolutley no rhyme or reason but to wander. If you love to travel or want to please pick up this book. You will gain another perspective or two from Bill.

Good book-- not my favorite of his. Some places I wanted to visit in Europe I probably won't because of his take on them but that's ok as there is alot of traveling I want to do so it is good to narrow the choices a bit. Worth a read but a bit superifical. I find his sexual innuendos a bit tiresome in places.

If you like Bryson, you'll like this. In middle age, he sets off alone to recreate a tour of Europe he took as a young man. Highly entertaining as his writing always is, this has the bonus of being a fairly good travel book on the cities of Europe. You'll find out which ones are still charming or beautiful, and which have been overrun with Burger King, which are costly or a bargain, which are rude or friendly, which are worth seeing and which are not. A bit outdated by now but probably still pretty accurate.
A quick, fun read overall.
