Reseña del editor

It's a "New World of Travel" because the immense array of alternative vacations are totally different from the standard sightseeing trips to which most travelers have been limited in the past. Today, hundreds of alternative travel opportunities -- adventures of the mind, learning vacations in the broadest sense, in every field from politics to art and crafts -- are being offered to persons of all ages and incomes. As enthusiastically described by Arthur Frommer and his daughter Pauline Frommer, these are vacation trips that aren't always advertised or sold through traditional travel channels.

This thoroughly up-to-date version includes summer studies in Oxford, Cambridge, Cornell and St. John's, volunteer vacations, week-long immersions in yoga and meditation, trips to locations rarely visited by standard tour operators, folk-dance camps, stays with private families, hospitality exchanges, camping, hiking and bicycling trips, diet and weight-reduction centers, careers in travel, summer camps for adults, RV trips, brainy tours, travel for students and seniors -- and countless more, of every description. Previous editions of this colorfully-written and classic book went through five successive and revised editions, proving that "alternative vacations" are among the fastest-growing segments of travel.


Biografía del autor

Arther Frommer, the son of a Polish-born mother and an Austrian-born father, Arthur Frommer was drafted into the U.S. Army during the Korean War, but was stationed in Europe because of his fluency in German and Russian. During his service, he wrote and self-published a guidebook called The GI's Guide to Traveling in Europe in 1955 that was an immediate hit among his fellow soldiers. In 1957, Frommer created a civilian version called Europe on 5 Dollars a Day, which became an overnight best seller. He subsequently published guidebooks covering all parts of the globe. Frommer licensed his travel guide book business to Simon & Schuster in 1977.

Eventually, the Frommer's series was purchased by John Wiley & Sons, and in August 2012, Google purchased the travel guides. Through all the exchanges, Arthur Frommer was always deeply involved with the guide books. In 2013, Frommer reacquired control of the guidebooks bearing his name and has come full circle, now self-publishing his iconic travel books again. Additionally, Arthur Frommer writes a travel column syndicated through King Features with his daughter Pauline Frommer, with whom he also co-hosts a weekly syndicated radio show, 'The Travel Show with Arthur & Pauline Frommer.'

Pauline Frommer started traveling with her guidebook-writing parents at the age of four months and hasn't stopped since. Her first job in travel was on the website Frommers.com, and eventually she worked her way up to Editor in Chief. Pauline also served as Travel Editor for MSNBC.com for several years, before working with John Wiley and Sons to create the award-winning Pauline Frommer Guidebooks, a 14-book series that won the coveted 'Best Guidebook of the Year' title three years in a row from the North American Travel Journalists Association and once from the Society of American Travel Writers)

For four years, Pauline created weekly travel segments for CNN's Headline News and CNN's Pipeline. You may also have seen her talking travel on The Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, The O'Reilly Factor, NBC Nightly News and ABC World News, Good Morning America, FOX News and every local news station you can name. Her writings have been widely published in everything fromBudget Travel Magazine to the Dallas Morning News to Nick, Jr. magazine.

They both live in New York.
