Summary

Prepare to Get Lost on the Beaten Path...
When Doug Mack picked up a 1963 edition of Europe on Five Dollars a Day, he stumbled on an inspired idea: to boldly go where millions have gone before, relying only on the advice of a travel guide that's nearly a half century out-of-date. Add to the mix his mother's much- documented grand tour through Europe in the late 1960s, and the result is a funny and fascinating journey into a new (old) world, and a disarming look at the ways the classic tourist experience has changed- and has not-in the last generation.
After a whirlwind adventure spanning eight countries-and costing way more than five dollars a day-Mack's endearing account is part time travel, part paean to Arthur Frommer's much-loved guide, and a celebration of the modern traveler's grand (and not-so-grand) tour.

Sad sap worked

It is comforting to hear another person's supposedly life-changing trip not penning out as expected, his disappointment and delights on the road echoing mine. Davis Skeist's sappy performance worked for Doug Mack's melancholic and often times melodramatic prose.

BORING!

What would have made Europe on Five Wrong Turns a Day better?

Fantastic idea for a book. Unfortantely, nothing happens even remotely interesting and you get to hear all of that nothingness with one of the most irritating voices you could imagine. Just get a hammer and beat it over your knuckles and save the $20.
