A literary travelbook in the tradition of Cees Nooteboom, Ryszard Kapuściński and George Orwell.
What does the world really look like?
With this question in mind Daniël Rovers hit the road in the past years with his backpack or suitcase. He wanted to get away from his writing desk to get a first hand experience of the world and to look beyond the daily news on tv and in the papers.
He has a broad view and choose exotic locations, even when his destination was in the Netherlands. He visited a course in country dancing in Someren-Eind, enjoys a cinnamon parfait at the 45th floor of a skyscraper in Shanghai, picked pears in Zeeland and travels by train, boat and bus to the Italian island Lampedusa.
