Travel with John Bermont
* * * Mastering Independent Budget Travel * * *
Travel in Europe with confidence using this first-hand information brought to you directly by the author,
yours truly, with a little help from my daughter Stephanie. I have lived, worked,
played, vagabonded, and photographed throughout Europe over the years, on my own wallet and incognito with
my real name. On this site you get the unvarnished raw scoop from a veteran of the rails and roads, plus
plenty of places with beaucoup silver stars to multi ugly blotches.
Critical facts complemented with side wise travel anecdotes will get you up the learning curve pronto.
There is more essential information here than you will find in any guide book, and this is all free!
Can you beat that deal? To keep me on the air please buy from my adverts at Amazon.com,
clearly identified in the pink or green fields on each page. You probably need some of that stuff anyway.
