    From the publisher:
    After 40+ years of exploring Europe, Rick considers this travel skills handbook his life's work, and with his expert introductions to the top destinations in Europe, choosing your next trip will be easy and stress-free. Using the travel skills in this book, you'll experience the culture like a local, spend less money and have more fun.

    The first half of this book is an introduction to travel tools and strategies for people who may be taking their first trip to Europe, or at least their first solo adventure. The second half has concise, 15–20 page overviews of European countries, helping readers figure out where they might like to go.

    This is a unique travel skills handbook full of Rick's expert knowledge. Other Europe guides from competitive publishers are geared toward younger audiences and focus on itineraries and traveling on a budget. While this book includes tips on saving money, it is not strictly a budget guide.
