Bryson writes hysterical travel books In this one he sets out to re create a backpacking trip of Europe he made during the seventies when he was twenty His descriptions of people and places will have you falling out of your chair The beer he is offered in Belgium for example defies his palate He just can t associate the taste with any previous experience but finally decides it puts him in mind of a very large urine sample possibly from a circus animal He should have stuck with Coca Cola nicht wahr Wendell Bryson has truly captured some of the giddy enjoyment that I experience when traveling in a foreign country where one does not speak the language I can t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything Suddenly you are five years old again You can t read anything You have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work Your whole existence becomes a series of interestingguesses At the Arc de Triomphe some thirteen streets come together Can you imagine I mean to say here you have a city with the world s most pathologically aggressive drivers who in other circumstances would be given injections of valium from syringes the size of basketball jumps and confined to their beds with leather straps and you give them an open space where they can all go in any of thirteen directions at once Is that asking for trouble or what Interspersed are salient comments about traveling on European trains There is no scope for privacy and of course there is nothing like being trapped in a train compartment on a long journey to bring all those unassuageable little frailties of the human body crowding to the front of your mind the withheld fart the three and a half suare yards of boxer shorts that have somehow become concertinaed between your buttocks the Kellogg s corn flake that is unaccountably lodged deep in your left nostril and rude comments about the Swiss What do you call a gathering of boring people in Switzerland Zurich He reveals some funny stories about himself I had no gift for woodworking Everyone else in the class was building things like cedar chests and oceangoing boats and getting to play with dangerous and noisy power tools but I had to sit at the Basics Table with Tubby Tucker and a kid who was so stupid that I don t think we ever learned his name We just called him Drooler The three of us weren t allowed anything dangerous than sandpaper and Elmer s Glue so we would sit week after week making little nothings out of offcuts except for Drooler who would just eat the glue Mr Dreck never missed a chance to humiliate me And what is this he would say seizing some mangled block of wood on which I had been laboring for the last twenty seven weeks and holding it aloft for the class to titter at I ve beenteaching shop for sixteen years Mr Bryson and I have to say this is the worst beveled edge I ve ever seen He held up a birdhouse of mine once and it just collapsed in his hands The class roared Tubby Tucker laughed so hard that he almost choked He laughed for twenty minutes even when I whispered to him across the table that if he didn t stop it I would bevel his testiclesIt used to be not as common now as formerly that each public washroom had an attendant whose job it was to keep everything clean and you were expected to drop in some change for his or her income The sex of the attendant was irrelevant to the sex of the washroom and Bryson had difficulty getting used to the idea of some cleaning lady watching him urinate to make sure he didn t dribble on the tiles or pocket any of the urinal cakes It is hard enough to pee when you are aware that someone s eyes are on you but when you fear that at any moment you will be felled by a rabbit chop to the kidneys for taking too much time you seize up altogether You couldn t have cleared my system with Drano So eventually I would zip up and return unrelieved to the table in the restaurant and spend the night back at the hotel doing a series of Niagara Falls impressionsBryson does not mince words and his perspective on former Austrian president Waldheim echoes mine but is perhaps trenchant I fully accept Dr Waldheim s explanation that when he saw forty thousand Jews being loaded onto cattle trucks at Salonika he genuinely believed they were being sent to the seaside for a holiday For the sake of fairness I should point out that Waldheim insists he never even knew that the Jews of Salonika were being shipped off to Auschwitz And let s be fair again they accounted for no than one third of the city s entire population italics theirs and it is of course entirely plausible that a high ranking Nazi officer in the district could have been unaware of what was happening within his area of command Let s give the man a break I mean to say when the Sturmabteilung or stormtroopers burned down forty two of Vienna s forty three synagogues during Kristallnacht Waldheim did wait a whole week before joining theunit Christ the man was practically a resistance hero Austrians should be proud of him and proud of themselves for having the courage to stand up to world opinion and elect a man of his caliber overlooking the fact that he is a pathological liarthat he has a past so mired in mis truths that no one but he knows what he has done It takes a special kind of people to stand behind a man like that

I m a fan of Bill BrysonI m not a fan of the complaining whingeing swilling pleb who wrote this travel book No this is too harsh But I do feel a little ripped off only because I know how interesting a Bill Bryson book can be There s no history in this book there s no culture there is very little interesting stories Here is what it felt like So I got off the train at Hergenbootensberg and it was raining Why does it always rain when I travel The place was a dirty shithole and no one spoke English at all I went to a travel desk and complained to them and then asked them to find me a room for the nightThe room was full of mildew and smelt like an armpit So I smoked There were no restaurants open just McDonalds everywhere I could see So I ate a burger and complained to the workers there about their weird foreign McDonalds burgersThe next day I walked 10 miles to a rich principality They were all rich and I was poor It was shit So I walked back to my hotel and stole the towels And then I smoked I ll be onto Belgium soon

This book was highly entertaining at times I can t say it wasn t In fact it was highly entertaining most of the time However I can t say I learned hardly anything about any of the places Bill Bryson visited He reserves most of his commentary for how far he walked to get to a train station how fast or slow the train rides were and how cornflake sized bugars feel in his nose while on those train ridesI hate to bash authorsthat s not what I m trying to do here I am simply trying to say Bryson s book was not what I was expecting and did not give me what I look for in reading travel novels I like to get a grasp of what different places are like the ambience the people maybe a little history Also it was about a year ago that I read this book and I am sure some of these tidbits were woven into his writing However I do remember feeling let down at the time and coming to the conclusion that inserting this sort of substance into his writing was not his main focus although it may have slipped in somewhere along the way
