Rate this:

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.
