I just bought the Kindle version of Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door book last week and am reading it now.
Wow. Tons and tons and tons of useful suggestions, tips, recommendations. This book is strongly recommended by me.
I find myself in sync with his values, style and approach to travel.
I am learning so much going through this book – and feeling much more comfortable about planning my own, first trip to Europe perhaps late this year. My first trip, due to schedule issues, is likely to be a solo trip, which adds to my anxiety. But his tips are helping me to have confidence in my planning.
After I finish reading this book, I think I’ll buy two more of his travel books as part of my planning – my goal is to make decisions and reservations by sometime in June.
