Michael N. Sever
In the fall of 1993, author Michael N. Sever smuggled $10,000 to family members in war-torn Yugoslavia. He undertook this mission to honor his father who passed away earlier that year.
But prior to the harrowing border crossing, (with a forged visa), and subsequent monetary handover, he traveled through Europe on the cheap. While planning and plotting, he experienced nearly the whole gamut of Europe, from artistic to atrocious, from silly to somber.
This journal details those two months of adventure as he accomplished one of the richest and most important tasks of his life.
