Description

From the hugely successful author of True Brits, comes this hilarious journey through a very different Europe... In True Brits American writer JR Daeschner travelled the UK seeking out its weirdest and wackiest traditions. After witnessing shin kicking, horn dancing and faggot cutting he thought he had seen it all - until he travelled across the channel to see our continental neighbours. Eurotripping is the hilarious account of JR s travels around Europe and of his quest to find out why people do such extraordinary things. From goat-tossing and baby-jumping in Spain, cutting ties and tailing spies in Germany, battling dragons in Wallonia and cow-fighting in Switzerland, JR not only talks to countless colourful characters and catches them in action, but also takes part in the events himself. Along the way he discovers that many of these weird and wonderful traditions have their routes in the most unlikely of places, and provide a fresh and brilliantly comic insight in what it means to be European today.
