Library Journal Review

Most of these tips from Burns will help the novice and inform seasoned travelers about, for example, international driving permits and foreign pay phone cards. None of this replaces a good travel agent, who might urge cancellation insurance (which Burns never takes out). Some hints are odd, like adding salt to local (boiled/bottled) water that tastes bad. Burns concentrates on overseas travel by air, boat, auto, and rail. Unwisely, details of escorted bus tours, a delightful way to view Ireland, Italy, Portugal, etc., are omitted. Good advice on packing, foreign exchange, bargaining, beggars, tipping, and more is read mellifluously by Suzanne Toren. A welcome addition to the travel section of popular libraries.√ĄGordon Blackwell, Eastchester, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
