Every year, thousands of young people pack a rucksack and go off for a few months of backpacking through Europe, staying at youth hostels and trying to get in as much travel and experience as their meagre budgets allow. I never did. Now, twenty years later, I'd make that trip.
The result is Running Late: A high-speed romp around Europe in which I set out in my forties to do the backpacking trip I never quite managed in my twenties.
It's a fast-paced, get-away-from-it-all tour through thirty destinations in sixteen countries.
