{Free Pdf} Dawdling by The Danube Unabridged (Audio Download): Amazon.co.uk: Edward Enfield, Edward Enfield, Whole Story Audiobooks: Audible AudiobooksAuthor Edward Enfield – Circuitwiringdiagram.co

Having only been to Germany once before to do National Service, Edward Enfield sets off on his latest cycling trip, carrying few preconceptions but plenty of wit Determining the route he should take from recommendations scrawled on a napkin, he starts by following the Romantic Street along the banks of the Danube from Passau to Vienna, taking in castles, churches and good food along the way And, as Edward amply reveals in this charming book, there is no place from which to see a country that is nearly as good as the saddle of a bicycle

    The quintessential Englishman abroad is often an amusing read, and this travel blog is no exception I particularly enjoyed the account of his journey through the Romantic Road, as itsounded like an ideal cycling project for this summer Combined with a few extra trails at each end,my only misgivings would be a distinct lack of camping sites or other cheap alternative accommodation Of course, Edward had no such reservations, enjoying the unlimited generosity ofthe television production team who very kindly accommodated him in nothing but the best So allhe had to do was make sure he did not get lost, a frequent incidence However, I was disappointed with his account of the Polish journey through the Mazurian lakes.From the material written, it was clear he had merely skimmed over the surface of an immenseand incredibly diverse terrain of which there was hardly a mention Further, he seemed to describe Poland and its people with a slightly condescending mannerand portrayed the country as if it were firmly rooted in the eighties Which atthe time of writing, it most certainly was not.

    My only criticism of this book is it is a bit short and feels like an extract from a longer book yet to be written But if you know Enfield Major s other writings you will wrap this slender volume around you like an old coat A very enjoyable read even if the river is a tad longer than the bike ride.

    Marvellous book has enthused us in mid and late sixties to ride the Romantic Road next, and then the Danube I salute you first read Downhill all the Way some years ago which helped to stimulate us to cycle across South Africa Now that we live in the UK we are thrilled to ride in Europe which is so much better

    Excellent service and a good read although not as fascinating as his other books As he actually states in the text, one romantic, old small German town is much like another I had just read Greece on my Wheels and the book about his trips down through france so parhaps I should have had a break before going on to read this.

    A lovely wee book If you know Edward Enfield you will know what to expect, a lovely warm, dry sense of humour Be aware it is not a travel guide, but it has given me some useful pointers for my cycle tour in Bavaria next summer A very enjoyable read.

    Having read the other two books about Edward Enfield sexploits around Ireland and France i was looking forward to this one Although it is not a bad book I did not find it as entertaining as the previous two.
