Sure the world has changed but young spirits keep coming on. I never traveled quite like Buryn but I loved his book and I travel on the edge when it is convenient. My best experiences are the free and nearly free nights I have had throughout Europe, especially Amsterdam. No, I am not a friend of the weed and Amsterdam is the last city where a man would ever need to pay for a woman, but you can.

You surely know that European borders are now as open as state lines in the USA. In the old days you had to declare customs, present your passport, and get stamped. That is long gone. They don't even ask to see your passport anymore. So what is this about computer systems scanning passports. That is only at airports for passengers arriving from the USA and other overseas ports. Within central Europe they don't even ask to see a passport so how could they scan it? Even on entering Switzerland they only give a cursory look - at the cover of the blue book. If you have the blue book you are as good as gold. The Baltic countries were still checking the blue book last year but that has to be a Stalin hangover which will soon be gone I expect.
