Kevin Turner is a freelance motorcycle journalist and the author of the critically acclaimed Bonjour! Is This Italy? A Hapless Biker's Guide to Europe. Following the success of his first book, Turner decided to embark on another trip, this time heading into Northern Europe and Scandinavia. In typically hapless fashion, planning and preparation were kept to a minimum, ensuring a journey of discovery, excitement, and occasional peril, in the grand tradition of foolhardy adventure. The resulting story blends Turner's eloquent and often hilarious writing with some truly inspiration locations, resulting in a unique adventure for bikers and non-bikers alike.
