    [PDF] New Europe AUTHOR Michael Palin 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

Michael Palin å 1 DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD Ó New Europe 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. I was a teenager when the Berlin wall came down and so my geography lessons learned in school were about a world where countries such as the USSR and Czechoslovakia existed Unfortunately as an adult I never took the time to learn about these both New and very very old Countries of Europe that have emerged now that communism has lost much of its stronghold Fortunately for me this is now changing as in my work we are beginning to collaborate and with these formerly Soviet countries thanks to the EU So I guess I really should have read this book a long time ago as for instance it might have helped to know a little about Albania before we started that collaboration last yearWritten in 20067 Michael Pailin visited a lot the countries he too had heard very little of as part of a travel program he was making with the BBC He writes with good humor and a genuine interest hope and kindness for the places and people he meets along the way The historical facts are interesting though I see from another review that the Bulgarian history may be inaccurate His hope that Europe can be unified by co operation shines through the book I am guessing from this he was anti Brexit Unfortunately though for my personal rating of the book there were just too many countries and too much history to keep straight I felt like I have felt when I have spent too long in a Museum or Art Gallery I love the places at first but after a few hours my headaches from the information overload Nevertheless It has renewed my interest in traveling to every Country in the EU and now those that are looking to join It will also be a handy reference book for when I do so as it gives a snapshot in time of these countries before the world recession but recently after communism It will be interesting to see how my own opinions compare to Palin s at the time
