Bradt Guide to Estonia, by Neil Taylor

estonia_small.jpgThe sixth edition of Neil Taylor’s Bradt Travel Guide to Estonia has got fatter with each edition as, Neil insists, he has too. He certainly feels their relationship is now almost human.

‘Sometimes I am absorbed by it, sometimes I hate it, but the bond is never broken,’ he reveals. ‘I like being surprised on every tour. This time I found out about an American President who before standing for office had walked around the Tallinn City Wall in 45 minutes. I also found a museum ceiling completely covered with portraits of Miss Estonia.

‘I have to admit I am one of the luckiest of the Bradt authors in that the terrain I cover has a mild climate, is flat, and enjoys an excellent bus service and has become economically so respectable that it will probably join the Euro in 2010.

‘A former President was famous for saying how relieved he was that the country was now boring. Fortunately he meant this just in a political sense. He was not talking about the architecture, the coastal scenery or the vivid modern art, otherwise I and Bradt would have had no role there!’

"Apparently Ranger was a bit of a ladies dog - the Steve Owen of Alaskan Huskies – intent on making sudden amorous advances towards anything with four legs and a fur coat. This was fine in his own time but not when pulling a slightly overweight journalist over the icy terrain of Swedish Lapland. The last thing this slightly overweight journalist needed was to be tipped from his sled into a frozen lake, even in the name of canine romance."


Joe Cawley, Adrenaline-lovers of the Arctic Circle, The Guardian, Sept 11, 2003
