This review is from: Slow Train to Switzerland: One Tour, Two Trips, 150 Years and a World of Change Apart (Kindle Edition)
Excellent and informative narrative which is far more than just a travel book. Crammed full of historical facts, revealing many aspects of Swiss life of which I was unaware. The juxtaposition of the two journeys is handled successfully. Bewes has created a readable insight into impact of the early British tours on Switzerland and contrasts mid-19th Century life with the present day. I read this while on a walking trip to the Swiss Alps and it was the perfect companion.
