"Manic Escape" is a story about a person with bipolar disorder, the author, taking what is probably best described as a manic spree in Europe for about 20 months after what was originally intended to be a short visit to Vienna, Austria. It is a combination of what is mostly a travel blog about visits to 12 different countries in Europe, and it is a personal story about what it is like to have bipolar disorder, manic episodes in particular. It includes a number of audio recordings and more videos taken during the trip. Vienna, Austria and Kiev, Ukraine were the cities that were stayed in the longest, so most of the story focuses on those two countries. It is probably about half multimedia and half text.
