Much like the UK itself: funny, interesting, strange
19 September 2017
I could read Bill Bryson's travel tales forever. Something about his endless enthusiasm for the oddities of people and places, his sense of humour, and his unique insights on history and culture. Notes from a small island is a very interesting read, whether you've visited the UK or not. Also, in the modern age of Trip Advisor, Google and other technologies to make travel plans, reading about Bryson's misadventures and spontaneous detours is excellent.
