This marvelous tale might aptly be titled, "The ART of Adventure" because of the author's beautifully crafted saga, told in colorful, vivid language. I've visited many of the spots he flew to, and he's managed to capture the spirit of each. I live in Europe near one of the spots he describes on the French Riviera and it's taken me six months of daily life to "tune in" to cultural oddities he somehow managed to astutely capture and describe in just a few days.It's the kind of book you needn't set out to read cover-to-cover. You could randomly flip to any day of this adventure log and be fascinated with that day's happenings. It's so compelling, though, that I'm sure you'll flip to another day immediately and won't want to miss one of them, once you've gotten just a taste of the author's artful style of writing. I didn't set out to read the whole book. But, once I'd skipped around to a few random days of his trip account, I just started at the first day and "flew" through the story along with him.
