About the Author: Karen McCann

After ten years of enjoying expat life in Seville, I began to wonder if I could still have the kind of spontaneous, unstructured travel adventures I d enjoyed in my youth So I headed to the train station, taking nothing but a small, roll aboard bag, a Eurail pass, and my husband The journey took me across 6000 miles in 13 countries, mostly in Eastern Europe My experiences often hilarious, occ

    Adventures of a Railway Nomad had me laughing so hard that I had to leave the book to go find some tissues for my watering eyes.while at the same time I learned both how to smartly pack a suitcase and about the pesky pr...

    I m actually impressed that I was able to finish this book It was a slow and generally dull read There were occasional passages of insightful reflection but mostly it was a full play by play or obscure cities I enjoy travel memoirs because they are not guidebooks of where people went, ...

    Love to read about expats, and interesting travel stories, and this one combines both Karen s an excellent writer and her journey with her husband into authentic countries and small towns by train practically had my armchair rocking along with them as they took a fascinating rail journey Recommended

  4. Chris says:

    The author s disdain for tourists , and particularly young tourists, absolutely drips off the pages of this book I m all for off the beaten path, new experiences, and interacting with locals But to focus on that as superior to how other people want to travel is just annoying Not to mention that the author is still not afraid to complain about the inconveniences of traveling to those off the beat...

    I usually love travel books They re much easier than a road trip although maybe not quite as much fun Throughout this book though, I just wasn t feeling it And then I came to this I d always considered us to be one of the sweetest words in the English language, suggesting love between parents and children, friends, lovers, football fans rooting the home team on to a victory It feels good to be part of something larger than ourselves...

    Travels by rail always sound romantic to me, so I was immediately interested I like how the coupke just set off, bad knees and all, open to discover And they weren t fussy travellers The places they visited were almost all unknown to me so that was interesting as well It s a practical book Lots of tips of what to bring, how to pack it etc I did find myself flagging at times N...

    Excellent read My husband and I are retired, older, living abroad and writing a blog about what it s like to live in a foreign country in retirement So this book is also a personal affirmation Trains are my favorite way to travel and this book is about a momentous and unconventional train trip Good to know there are kindred spirits out there on similar escapades away from the comforts of retirement homes and country kitchens To all my friends, in their 60 s and 70 s who voice a desire to be doing what we re doing, this book is a well to draw the courage and gumption and resource to get on that camel and get going Travelling is a way of filibustering t...

    I read Dancing in the Fountain by Karen McCann some time ago and when Adventures of a Railway Nomad love the title came up I was keen to read it especially as I love travel myself and reading Travel moving abroad Memoirs This one didn t disappoint The Author and her husband Rich leave their home in Seville head for the train station with their rail card and embark on their planned adventure Although I have been to a few of the places mentioned in this Memoir it was great to revisit some of them especially when Yugoslavia was mentioned which obviously is no but, there are so many Towns, Cities, villages that one tends to miss because of time constraints They tried as best they could to join a free or well priced and not too long tour in each place they visited a brilliant way to get a quick heads up They had some pre booked accommodation and really didn t have a clue if the descriptions would be apt all ...

    Karen is a treasure I read all the travel books I can get my hands on and after reading Adventures of a Railway Nomad I may never read another, except Karen s next one Karen, quite simply, nails it She is thoughtful, funny, honest and entertaining all at the same time Certainly Adventures does get off the beaten track and that is not the kind of travel experience everyone will embrace, but everyone will embrace this book With a thoroughness and integrity that is rare Karen pulls you in and keeps y...
