The second book of the series is named and patterned after the first: “Backpackers and Flashpackers in Eastern Europe: 500 Hostels in 100 Cities in 25 Countries.” The book is currently being finalized for publication.
Hypertravel Books is a newly formed imprint in Los Angeles, CA, with the mission to promote smart travel.
