No new reports?😞
Zoe, I've been wondering what happened to him too and why his reports abruptly stopped... 😢
Same here - Wasn't he was joining a RS tour - maybe no time?
Hope it's 'cause he's just having too much fun.
I'm hoping for a mid-tour interim report, but I know how busy one can be!
I, too, hope and his wife are having a wonderful time.
No, his trip is NOT finished. His Belgium/Holland tour finishes in Amsterdam on Saturday. I do not know if he is staying on in Amsterdam or anywhere else in Europe after the tour. But I do know, ( he wrote me) and promised to provide a trip report.
Hopefully he will finish his trip with a bigger report. He is most likely having to much fun to stop and write
His earlier post stated he was on the 5-17 to 5-27 Belgium/Holland RS tour.
1- He never left Lyon and is still eating and drinking
2-his communication device was stolen
3- Belgium and Holland are too "serious" ( or boring?) to write about
4- He was captured by aliens and taken to to the Delta quadrant
5- he is writing a book of his travels and it will be on sale on Amazon in a couple of weeks
Voting is now open
After all of our earlier replies I would vote for # 5.
5. And it's our fault.
Well, I'm buying a copy-I think Bill Bryson is getting too cranky.
I'm in line for a copy, too! Hope all is well.
5 possibly, maybe he sees himself as the next RS
It's a shame we hear no more. It was wonderful to hear his plans,and first impressions - and now nothing.....
Maybe kidnapped by Russian spies and sent to North Korea?
this is definitely suspicious . . . he's just left us HANGING, waiting for more of his inimitable prose!
Being fairly new to this forum, I am not sure what etiquette is in all instances.
Would it be rude to send him a private message to inquire about his well being? (Or will that just up the price of his book?)
It's never rude to send a nice PM. I sent him one a couple days ago... no response. I hope he's ok.
I sent one over a week ago...npo response. I sure hope all is OK.

Well in light of your responses, I will now vote #4
Sure hope some calamity did not occur
Me too joe.
Turns out it was #6... the flu. So glad Mike's ok now.
Hopefully the flu didn't hit til after his trip was over. Still, sorry to hear that.

Sorry I haven't written back to those of you who've written asking about me: I'm currently hale again having been struck down by the flu right after arriving back in America. Work is seriously intense right now, too, which is taking up my writing time. However, I am writing up my experiences in the beautiful nations of Belgium and Holland and will share them with you as soon as I'm done.
Thank you to everyone who has been reading up until my hiatus; I promise there's more to come!

Looking forward to your additional reports and glad to hear you're recovered from the flu. Not surprised you got sick with all your travels. Re-entry into "regular" life sure is difficult, isn't it?!
Great to hear you are feeling better and have returned home in one piece. I'm looking forward to reading your reports whenever you are ready. They are always so much fun!!
