Tom Meitnerabout this book: With just one small mistake, we wound up stranded in the middle of France. It was the middle of the night, everything was closed, and we didn't know a lick of French.
And that was only one thing that went wrong on our 2.5-week trip.
This book isn't about a bunch of unbelievable events, or disasters that would make for a thrilling action-adventure movie. But that's not the point of this book, either. This is an "everyman" tale of how one mistake can spiral into a bunch of mistakes. And those mistakes can combine to unravel a trip - and threaten to ruin two years of planning and preparation.
If you've ever worried about travel disasters, this is the book for you. Not only will it show you that most travel problems can be fixed on the fly, you'll walk away with plenty of takeaways to help you prepare for your next trip without having to worry about these bonehead mistakes.
This is the story of not being prepared, of taking on an adventure way too large than we expected, and surviving roadblock after roadblock as we toured the major cities of Europe.
