Remember when a care-free trip through eight European countries didn´t nesessitate taking a loan out on your parents? I do, so come along with me and relive some of those days. I had a lot of fun writing this book so if any of you other old farts out there would like to go back in time for a few hours, now is your chance!

I spent three weeks travelling in Europe in each of the years 1973, 1974 and 1976. I´ve taken what I think are the most adventurous and humourous parts of the lot and written it down. All names used are actual people who don´t need to be protected; and all cities bare my footprints, and as well as many pleasant recollections, especially of London, I have pictures and souvenirs to prove it ....a bag full of foreign coins, a knife from the Kabul Student Hotel in Amsterdam, an ashtray from the Hotellet Absolom in Copenhagen, a towel from the Gaudi in Barcelona....

Although this book is a tad racy for children, it is far from obscene; however, it is not one of Grimm´s fairy tales. The language is salty and an anal retentive person would certainly consider some parts lewd and lacivious; I think they are funny! The folks at The Christian Science Monitor or the Pope would probably not endorse this effort. And if you´re looking for writing like Hemmingway´s, this ain´t it - thank God. After having been forced to plod through his The Old Man And The Sea in high school and his gloryifing the cruelty of the running of the bulls in Pamplona, I think he sucked worse than a Shop-Vac! I prefer my own prose.

I am not a fan of today´s political correctness garbage; so, if anyone wants to take the trouble of carefully going through this book, I´m sure you´ll find something to offend everyone. I make no apologies for this!

Many thanks to the people who encouraged me along the way. To my detractors, PHUT_T_T_T! How many books have you had published?
