How Low Can You Go? Round Europe for 1p Each Way (Plus Tax)
How Low Can You Go? Round Europe for 1p Each Way (Plus Tax)
Chesshyre, Tom

Tom Chesshyre is on a mission: to visit a dozen destinations that he can t spell, can t pronounce and wouldn t have heard of if low-fare airlines didn t fly to them. Places like Szczecin, Poprad-Zakopane, Kaunas, Paderborn, Haugesund, Brno and Tampere.
Squeezing into his no-frills seat, he enters a hidden world of ex-Solidarity leaders and ultra-cheap dentists in Poland; minus 50C ice-rooms in Slovakia; stag parties and Skype in Estonia. Along the way he learns about the New Europe , the collapse of the Iron Curtain, the expansion of the European union plus the fun you can have on a 1p flight.
But Tom also explores another highly topical question, and ventures into the headquarters of both Easyjet and Friends of the Earth as he ponders: should we even be flying at all?
This is a funny and thought-provoking book on travel in the twenty-first century.
