The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrims' Progress is a book by a classic of the American literature, Mark Twain. This very book started his literary career. A young journalist spent six months on board of "Quaker City" with his fellow countrymen who went on a journey to Europe and the Holy land. They were in Morocco, Venice, Rome, Paris, Jerusalem and Odessa, crossed the Atlantic twice and came ashore in the New-York harbour safe and sound. This story about travelling has the aim to show a reader what Europe and East would look like if he (or she) saw them with his (her) own eyes, rather than with the eyes of someone who had been there before.
