If you've ever wanted to backpack in Europe... If you want to relive your adventures... If you love good travel writing... Better than guidebooks, these first-person accounts paint vivid pictures of a traveler's experience in Europe. Like familiar music and favorite scents, they'll awaken a taste for adventure in those who have yet to travel, and bring back memories for those who have. Romance, surprise, discovery and wisdom all bubble through these authors' inviting pieces. At last, a collection of first-person eye-witness adventures that will keep you laughing, wondering, and walking with the well-traveled story tellers who take you inside Europe's must-see places. Run with the bulls in Pamplona, or stumble across romance there instead. Trek 600 miles on the Camino de Santiago and discover your inner strength. Throw your share of 90,000 pounds of tomatoes in Europe's biggest food fight at Buñol. Lose your wallet, your passport, your entire pack--or maybe just your old ways of thinking.

Los Angeles Times
What you learn is that travel puts you in situations you could never imagine and that young travelers on limited funds can land in some incredible circumstances.
