    A Delightful Post-Trip Read

    I read this on the plane returning from Europe, and it was a humorous, quick read that brought a smile to my face and had me almost laughing out loud as Bryson so remarkably described the experiences I had just undergone attempting to cross streets in Paris and Rome, or weeding through tourists in Florence in an attempt to see the beautiful sights the city offered. A nice collection of short essays reflecting back on his travels 20 years earlier, as well as describing his return visit more recently. After reading it, I had no desire to add Naples or Capri to the bucket list of travel, but would love to spend time in Bruges some day. He brings each location to life through his vignettes.

    Bill Bryson is is my Hero

    I havn't read in years. I was given "A Walk In The Woods" and read it on the way home from Maine this summer. I became hooked on Bill Bryson's books. Neither Here Nor There is an entertaining look at a man who's traveled many lands, and in his witty sense of humor, makes Europe look both pleasing and monotanous. If you're not pleased and inspired to see the world or at least somewhere besides your local town by reading this book, you should stop reading, period!

    Real World Traveling

    I found this book to be so close to my own perceptions of my journeys through europe. We went through many of the same troubles. The similarities only made me want to read more. It was delightfully funny but i would not suggest it to a first time european traveler. As it may give you the wrong impression of some of the famed cities in the book. Others will absolutely love it.

    For the Open Trail

    I listened to these tapes on the road, and they made me wish I was packing it through Europe rather than the midwest! They were humorous, revealing, and informative, and particuarly enlightening regarding the radical changes Europe underwent in the early 1990s. Definitely worth it to hear!
