1.19.2015: The Broken Road - Patrick Leigh Fermor
The last book in a travel trilogy. Mr. Fermor walked across Europe in 1933035, this book takes him through, Bulgaria, coastal Romania, Istanbul, and ends at Mt Athos in Greece. Fervor is one to the GREAT 20th century travel writers, If this does not want to make you want to drop all and walk out the door, well then, you may be letting life pass you by. It was written in around 2010-2011, reminiscing from memory the events of 75 years previous, and the author died before he could complete it. His biographer finished it based on diaries. It just leave me jealous for the interesting life he led.
