I really love to travel and was looking forward to reading this book. I thought the writing style was nice, but as far as the story goes, I thought it was redundant.

I cannot imagine what Sue Ellen did, going to Europe for most of the summer with only what she had in one backpack and staying in God knows where for the night.
