New Europe Read ß 4 Read & Download Ø PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Þ Michael Palin States into Poland and across the Carpathian mountains into Slovakia the Czech Republic and what was until recently East GermanyVisiting twenty countries than in his Himalaya and Sahara journeys combined he encounters painful memories and exuberant celebrations Throwing himself into local life with his usual reckless curiosity he samples pig fat with a brandy chaser meets Romanian lumberjacks drives the 858 stopping train from Poznan to Wolsztyn learns about mine clearing in Bosnia treads the catwalk at a Budapest fashion show and watches Turkish gents wrestling in olive oilIt's New Europe but vintage Pal. An excellent read There were times when MP dipped into the tourist aspect of a New Europe rather than the political aspect of a New Europe but both were well represented The stories range from the comic to the nearly I m about to cry moments mainly when MP visited Auschwitz After seven books by MP I am still enjoying his writing style

New Europe

New Europe Read ß 4 Read & Download Ø PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Þ Michael Palin Michael Palin's New Europe starts with a simple idea that only a couple of hours from home is a half of Europe that is for him as unknown and unexplored as the plateau of Tibet or the vastnesses of the Sahara Cut off for most of his life by Cold Wars and Iron Curtains Europe's eastern lands are now open for businessAnd it's as much a voyage of discovery as any of Michael's other journeys as he finds himself in countries he'd barely heard of many of them new names on the map many unfamiliar and mysterious all with tragic histories and much brighter futuresStarting in the snows of the Julian Alps on the bord. For 123 days in 2006 and 2007 Michael Palin visited 20 countries that except for Turkey were formerly part of either Yugoslavia or the USSR He covered some twelve thousand miles beginning in Slovenia then moving down the Adriatic through Turkey swinging north to the remaining Balkans on to Hungary Slovakia and the Czech Republic then hopping up to the Baltics then Poland and finally to what used to be East Germany The cultures of these places are as old as any So the title New Europe only makes sense to a post WWII frame of mind And that topic what it used to be like under communism is the typical conversationThe ironic Monty Python esue Palin that made his previous travel books so engaging is here although not as freuently Still he makes eye wateringly beautiful places both natural wonders such as the Curonian Spit in Lithuania and man made sites such as Dubrovnik seem personal and sometimes humorous This is still worth your effortBy the way Palin has done an unbelievably generous thing He put together an amazingly well done website where one can read all of his travel books unabridged and for free Give palinstravelscouk a try

review New Europe

New Europe Read ß 4 Read & Download Ø PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Þ Michael Palin Ers of Italy and Slovenia Michael heads east to discover the half of Europe he never knewHeading down the ancient trade route of the Adriatic coast he turns north into the Balkans gingerly picking themselves up after the vicious fighting of the 1990's Albania takes Michael into a different world of strongly eastern influence which he follows through Bulgaria Macedonia and into Turkey where Europe and Asia meet Turning north to Moldova and Romania he follows the mighty Danube into Serbia and Hungary the very heart of Europe and on to the Ukraine A final sweep from north to south takes him through the Baltic. I have always been a fan of Michael Palin from the days of Monty Python to the first of his travels Around the world in 80 days he has always epitomised me of the civil British traveller as compared to the uncivil ones who seem to grab all the terrible news stories Someone who still accepts that there is a world out there full of wonder and beauty that not only do we know know about but which we had nothing to do with Every time I see about his travels I realise that the world does still hold wonders still to be discovered even in this age of constantly connected social mediaNow I appreciate that this book is based upon the series from several years ago like all the others of his travels however this is the first time I have picked this book up And I must admit it is still with the usual warmth humour and sense of wonder that I have come to recognise as his style This is an incredible journey around countries that are not on the other side of the world but might as well be considering how little we and I mean Iknow about them Having only glancingly seen this world I have made several business trips to Turkey and Poland I realise that there is so much to see although I do fear that this world is rapidly vanishing for many reasons I am just sad that in an age where separatism and xenophobia is on the increase there is still to be gained from getting to know our neighbours than there is to building walls
