THE TRAVEL WRITER MOST LIKELY TO MAKE YOU LAUGH - BILL BRYSON
One of our favorite writers is the hilarious Bill Bryson. Born in Iowa in the 1950s, Bryson brings a friendly and curious perspective to his observations about the world. His trip are usually several months long, with a narrative that describes the characters he meets along the way, the history of the region, and usually a trip or three to the local pub. He is especially funny when grumpy or self-deprecating, and that is most of the time. His most notable travel books cover trips across Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, and an attempted hike of the Appalachian Trail. Learn more here about Bill Bryson.
