KIRKUS REVIEW

This report, which is designated as a tip-sheet for travelers, by an inveterate itinerant and conscientious nickel-nurser, is intended to make your trip to Europe more enjoyable and less expensive- which will of course make it appreciably more enjoyable. Based on two years of travelling- with Elva and Kendal, the fine art here of milking a minimum bankroll has no shady implications or practices- but is based on the premise that you will not be buying an American way of life (from hotels to hamburgers) but trying to absorb the varied best which Europe has to offer. The fine points of currency and exchange; travelling light; passports and visas; planes versus ships; travel agents; packaged tours; travel costs (hitting the road on less than $45.00 a month) and lodgings for the night; eating; drinking; tipping; your best buys, and getting them home again (customs officials) provides a complete coverage on where you will be spending what. It's a solid investment, and Dodge is a highly entertaining escort.
