Description

In a modern rendition of the Grand tour of Europe, Nick Middleton set out to seek the truth behind the myths we British like to propagate about our European neighbours...The Belgians are boring, the French eat nothing, but Frogs legs and garlic and the Germans are officious and efficient. He followed a trail of contemporary sights and experiences that every well rounded Eurocitizen should encounter think of the British, and to see how different or alike we all are now that we are linked by a common market.show more
