KIRKUS REVIEW

Chatty chaperonage with a slightly feminine inflection by a lady who seems not only to have commuted to Europe annually but lived there extensively. While covering with reasonable (in price also) inclusiveness language, food, clothes, accommodations (the Ritz hotels still are prima but there's a lot about camping and hosteling), transportation, money and how you spend it, entertainment and health--the author gets down to an infinity of incidentals from having your shoes resoled or your hair done, before buying that Paris hat (essential--she says) Which would indicate a certain maturity for the audience in mind.... Next stop, the specifics of Fielding or Fodor.
