Review of 'Neither here nor there : travels in Europe' on 'Goodreads'
I read this as it was a present from my children. I don't really find Bryson funny and find his writing lazy - he seems to get into 'scrapes' partly out of his own laziness/bad planning and he's not very insightful.
Reading this 18 years after it was first published, it feels dated of course; but not quite old enough to be historical. The chapter of Bulgaria was more considered however.
