English) donkey to carry his baggage and everything will go smoothlyFunny and entertaining as Stevenson who loves travel but is a complete amateur stumbles through his travels Gives us a look at the way the world was then as he trudges through small villages and visits a monasteryPlus you realize just hiking through the French countryside in an era before cars cell phones electric lights or even handy paperback travel books is uite an adventure The chapter where he and theonkey get lost and try to reach their Gramatica de baza a limbii romane destination afterark is uite intense and a bit scary Suggestive Inuiry into the Hermetic Mystery with a Dissertation on the More Celebrated of the Alchemical Philosophers Being an Attempt Towards the Recovery of the Ancient Experiment of Nature despite the fact that a mere couple miles separates the two places he s traveling between In the woods at night he might as well be lost in the jungleInteresting book but he has a tendency to write about places like everyone will know where he s talking about and it left me a bit lost in spots until he mentioned a place name Iid recognize 25 I think I College University Budgeting: College And
