Cameron's "The Temporary European"

If you haven't yet read Cameron Hewitt's book, The Temporary European, run to your computer immediately and order it from the Rick Steves store, or better yet, download the e-book from IBooks and you can start reading right now. It is hilarious and informative. Couldn't put it down. Thanks, Cameron, for a great read!

Thanks for sharing. I agree! I am 3/4 of the way through and can’t put it down. I was fortunate to take a class from Cameron prior to going to Central Europe in 2019. He was so helpful. The book is both insightful & humorous.
Exceptional memoir!

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Great insight behind the curtains at RSE. The discussion on Cinque Terre and the competing gelaterias was very amusing.

I'm halfway through The Temporary European, though I'm cheating by skipping from chapter to chapter. This Italian-by-descent introvert, exported from Ohio and still a Denver Bronco fan (despite not having lived there for 25 years) is getting a kick out of Cameron's lessons and confessions. Envious of his picnic from Provence markets, I picked up a few things tonight from my own hyper local farmers market. With that and a glass of wine, I've jumped to the "All Alone; Never Alone" section to read his lessons and insights into solo travel as "its own genre." Excellent reading to put me in a temporary European spirit before my upcoming solo trip!
