KIRKUS REVIEW

Enthusiastic survey of various kinds of travel, in the Americas, Europe, the Orient, around the world; the methods, what different lines have to offer, the advantages of freighters, tourist and luxury classes; bus travel, train and plane. Kinds of drinks and foods to try in different countries. What to buy and what not to buy. How to prevent customs from being a nightmare. How to make yourself travel and the advantages. General coverage, with prices in round figures. Bibliography of books to read. Listing of freight lines, itineraries, passenger space. This does not plan trips, but merely whets the appetite. Not as inspiring a book as Helen Fish's Invitation to Travel, but a very useful item.
