Backpacking Europe

Backpacking EuropeEurope, a Rite of Passage: Tales from Backpackers (Lonely Planet Read This First S.) Every year thousands of youngsters from America, Britain and Australia head to Europe for the trip of a lifetime. This eclectic, contemporary anthology drawn from literary magazines, websites and backpacking newsgroups records the trials and tribulations of these wannabe explorers, who armed with little more than a newly acquired backpack, guide book in one hand, Eurail pass in the other, embark on a journey that has become a de-facto rite of passage into the adult world. This funny, touching and sometimes mad collection of first-hand experiences brings new life to a well-told tale: from snap-shots at the Eiffel-Tower and yard-glasses at Oktoberfest to Monopoly-board adventures in London and Sangria-fuelled seduction in Spain.

The Rules of BackpackingThe Rules of Backpacking This book is an informal guide to the culture and reality of backpacking based on personal experience and knowledge picked up from travellers across the world. Thinking about who to go with, and where to go? Should you join a tour, travel with friends, or go it alone? And when you have decided to go, just what should you expect when you arrive? Learn about what not to do when getting a massage from a Cambodian prostitute and how to sniff out koalas in the Australian outback. Find out why westerners can't be hairdressers in Thailand and why women aren't allowed to eat sheep heads in South Africa. Cram packed with advice on subjects that guidebooks often forget to mention, this book will help you find the way to your own adventure.
