Europe from a Backpack

Fifty-eight real stories from young travellers abroad offer the budget, independent, and youth traveller vivid first-person accounts of the countries and experiences of backpackers, students, and sojourners. Offering more than just travelling facts, this guide actually invites readers to see, taste, and experience European adventures - from sneaking into Rome's Coliseum to running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. These backpackers relate experiences that people with suitcases and reservations wouldn't necessarily experience, including sleeping in streets and hostels, 24 hours of clubbing on the Spanish island of Ibiza, and train-travel debacles. The stories offer dozens of glimpses of the most worthwhile destinations in 11 of Europe's most well-travelled countries, not to mention lesser-known lands revealed in the 'Off the Beaten Path' section. This collection of youthful adventures will keep aspiring travellers laughing, wondering, and walking with the storytellers who take them inside Europe's must-see places. Countries explored include Holland, Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
