Jump from a moving train like a 1930s hobo, kiss a bashful girl on an icy ferry boat, take in Shakespeare's Henry the IV, Part I, and arrive in Venice during a rare snowstorm: these are just some of the experiences that will confront you in Europe '76, Garden Urthark's memoir of his solo trip through Europe during the winter of 1976.
In Europe ’76, you will climb a ladder to get back into an Innsbruck youth hostel after curfew, see only half the stage from a balcony seat at the palatial Vienna Opera House, persevere through the snores of a burly Sicilian worker with whom you share a room in Palermo, and never forget the moonlit night in Athens when a hostel puts you to bed with the women because there is not enough room in the men's quarters.
With a backpack and a Eurail pass, Garden Urthark will be your guide on a Grand Tour through Europe during the winter of 1976, including a visit to Black Bart’s in the Red Light district of Amsterdam. Join this now-wiser writer as he looks back on the two-and-a-half unforgettable months of his solo tour as a 22-year-old to the ageless sights and wonders of Luxembourg, Italy, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, England, France, Spain, and Greece.
