This book was a great counterbalance to the other books that I am reading. Oliver Lück is a very curious guy who takes his van and his dog on a 50.000 km spin through Europe while meeting interesting people and places that might not be the main attraction for other travelers. It shows the uniqueness and individuality of people and I think the lesson it transmits is that happiness is a subjective construct and very different for everyone.

So what?

The book portrays Europe as a big treasure and inspired me to take a similar trip at some point in the future. It’s amazing to see prejudices broken down and to be inspired by different ways of living outside the mainstream and the hamster wheel hustle. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to broaden his mind about the different countries in Europe and to get out of their location-based echochamber.

If the summary caught your attention, you can buy the book here.


I am reading A LOT of books lately, and to remember more of what I read, I summarize them and give my thoughts on them. I thought, why not share it with you. If you buy the book through the links at the end of the post, I might get a little bit of commission at no charge to you.
