Publisher's Summary

Having only been to Germany once before to do National Service, Edward Enfield sets off on his latest cycling trip, carrying few preconceptions but plenty of wit. Determining the route he should take from recommendations scrawled on a napkin, he starts by following the 'Romantic Street' along the banks of the Danube from Passau to Vienna, taking in castles, churches and good food along the way. And, as Edward amply reveals in this charming book, there is no place from which to see a country that is nearly as good as the saddle of a bicycle...

Ultimately endearing

I was a little put off by the first chapter to this which made me think that the author's sense of self might be too strong to enjoy it but kept going and once he was on his travels the whole thing was a delight - calm and observant, affectionate for what he saw but not gushing. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it stayed in the mind afterwards.

Easy listening and quite amusing

Dawdling by the Danube was a easy listen. It is interesting to hear his exploits that are downloaded for the BBC.

I so enjoyed his travel both on the Danube and in Ireland. It is great to hear a man slightly beyond his 20's who takes travelling by bike as a means of transport as the norm. He tells it as it is good and bad.
