Palin explores former Soviet Bloc
Palin's New Europe series kicked off in the Julian Alps (Slovenia) and then continued through 19 other countries--all of which have seen dramatic changes since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. 123 days later, Palin finds himself in Berlin itself, where the whole domino effect of revolutions began.
In usual Palin style, the ever-productive author/traveler has once again blessed us with a book of the adventure, as well as a three-disc DVD of the BBC series. I haven't had the opportunity to watch it yet, but I think we can all assume that it will be just as excellent as his other travel programs.
