Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
Eating in Europe is sightseeing for your taste buds. Every country has local specialties that are good, memorable, or both.
I'm cheating a bit this week. All I'm reading is travel tip because I leave on a vacation to England and Ireland soon. So this is the first two sentences from the chapter called "Eating" in this very useful Rick Steves book which has the subtitle "The Travel Skills Handbook". Great preparation for going to Europe and enjoying your trip, whether you've been there before or are on your very first trip abroad. Highly recommended!
