“An enjoyable read, I especially liked the quippy little self-deprecating moments and the described grittiness of Eastern Europe, which still has a very distinct flavour and makes for good travel reading.

I especially enjoyed Will’s description of Budapest as it brought back vivid pictures of my own visit there.”

Michael Fraiman, Author of A Long Way Back: Stories of Travelling Home’.

This is my second published book, but first travel related effort, following the release of the football related ‘This is How it Feels to be City’ in 2012.

Featuring thousands of miles of rail travel and a fair few dark beers, the book will hopefully make you laugh at our frequent mishaps, smile at the eccentric characters we meet, think about conflicts & disasters past and present, plus give you some ideas for your own travels.
