About the Book
I was rather rapt in Scandinavia when I visited in February 2013, in the depths of winter. This time it was summer, most of the snow was gone, and I was looking forward to seeing many of the bits I hadn't seen last time, including four capital cities, colourful Bergen and the fjords of southwestern Norway. And the far north: about as close as most of us will ever get to the North Pole.
Like most of us, Graham Meale spent a good deal of his life hostage to a mortgage. In 2004, at age 47, he realised that there was more to life, got his first passport and began working hard to fill it up. His goal is to see every nation on Earth that doesn’t have a McDonalds.
