"Autumn Wanderers is a travelogue kept during a 2-month trek, from London to Istanbul. 

In it, two close friends who met in college revisit their old school & places around New England important to them, then fly to England, embarking on a European trip in the spirit of the antiquated tradition of young men going on a 'Grand Tour' to see the world. 

The trip (and the book too) unintentionally followed (loosely) the trip from London to Istanbul taken by Patrick Leigh Fermor in 1933/34, written about in his later life, and published in three volumes. 

During the journey, the Wanderers walk through twilit parks in London, attend a children's rugby 'match tea' in The English Countryside, stroll along the houseboat lined canals of Amsterdam, visit underground art spaces in Den Haag, see innumerable places of dreams/book/films in Paris, feel at home amongst the snow/candlelight/people of Berlin, ride trains through vast snowy landscapes past broken towns and train stations, experience the deep, hardy beauty of winter in Krakow, in glorious winter sun visit the palatial baths in Budapest, and ferrying from shore to shore of the Bosphorus, soundtracked by the call to prayer, adventure through intoxicatingly magical sites and smells of Istanbul."
