Abstract:

"When Doug Mack picked up a 1963 edition of Europe on Five Dollars a Day, he stumbled on an inspired idea: to boldly go where millions have gone before, relying only on the advice of a travel guide that's nearly a half century out-of-date. Add to the mix his mother's much-documented grand tour through Europe in the late 1960s, and the result is a funny and fascinating journey that is part time travel, part paean to Arthur Frommer's much-loved guide, and a celebration of the modern traveler's Grand (and not-So-Grand) Tour"--Page 4 of cover.
