Cover Reveal – Not Cool: Europe by Train in a Heatwave by Jules Brown

Today it is my pleasure to be a part of the Cover Reveal for Not Cool: Europe by Train in a Heatwave by Jules Brown! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this!

I have never done a cover reveal before so I am excited to be a part of this. I am especially thrilled to have this book as my very first one as this is a topic that is frequently being discussed by my husband and me! We have decided to move to Germany to be closer to my family for a while. We won’t make this move for several more years but it is fun to already be dreaming about the adventures we will hopefully be able to have when it does happen. One of our biggest goals is to experience as much of Europe by train as possible. So how fitting is this book?! It is definitely on my TBR now and I look forward to reading it and discussing it with my husband!

First, let me tell you a little bit more about this book and its author and then we’ll take a look at the new cover!

Title: Not Cool – Europe. By Train. In a Heatwave

Author: Jules Brown

Relaunch Date: June 10th 2021

Print Length: 201 pages

Book Description

A laugh-out-loud train journey across Europe with a travel writer who should know better.

Inspired by the budget InterRail trips of his youth, veteran travel writer Jules Brown thought he’d try and visit 9 cities in 9 countries in 9 days. Sadly, that wasn’t his only mistake.

It soon turned into a hot and steamy adventure (no, steady on, not that kind) by rail across Europe, taking in Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Liechtenstein, Zürich and Milan.

A tale of relaxing train rides to famous tourist destinations and guidebook sights? Not so much. All aboard for an offbeat travel adventure with a very funny writer seriously in danger of losing his cool.

About the Author

I took my first solo trip around Europe when I was seventeen, and I’ve been travelling and writing professionally since I published my first travel guide – to Scandinavia – in 1988. Since then I’ve eaten a puffin in Iceland, got stuck up a mountain in the Lake District, crash-landed in Iran, fallen off a husky sled in Canada, and got stranded on a Mediterranean island. Not all of those things were my fault. You can read about my travelling life in my memoir, Don’t Eat The Puffin.

I wrote Rough Guide travel books for over thirty years, but now that I no longer have to copy down bus timetables for a living I don’t really know what to do with myself. So I come up with ridiculous ideas for trips and then write about them, which is where my 9-city, 9-day, 9-country trip came from – that’s covered in Not Cool: Europe by Train in a Heatwave.

I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up.
