Vegas spend less see more...
Frommer learned her travel writing from the best -
her dad, Arthur Frommer, author of the original guidebook
series, 'Europe on $5.00 a Day.' Pauline's family
always traveled on a budget, staying at mom-and-pop
joints, travelling by public transportation and eating
where the locals were. And that's the way she still
travels today because she learned that these types
of vacations not only save money but offer a richer,
deeper experience of the culture. 'Las Vegas spend
less see more' has been designed as a budget guide
for a new generation. Your girlfriends who love Las
Vegas will love this book.

Juicy Tip From the
Book: It's stupifying how easy it
is to plan a wedding in Vegas, even a big one, and
even if you have to do it over the phone. That's because
unlike your neighbourhood church or temple, wedding
chapels in Las Vegas are, in effect, mini-Walmarts
of wedding services; once you choose your chapel,
you'll use it toplan all of the other elements in
the wedding. Actually, you'll have no: The chapels
are highly proprietary about couples using services
from outside vendors; don't try it, or you could be
booted from your own wedding.

From this Book: Bathe in a natural spa
in France - On both sides of the Pyrenees, but especially
in France, there are thermal spas where you can bathe
in natural minerals and sulphurous water - ideal after
a day in the great outdoors. One of the greatest geothermal
spas is 150m underground at Bagneres-de-Luchon in the
central Pyrenees (a 2hrbtrain journey from Toulouse).
There are several B&Bs and hotels along the town's
main high street but for a more homely break, stay 3km
out of town in the small village of Juzet-de-Luchon at
Le Poujastou, a converted eighteenth-century inn with
five rooms where you'll dine on home-made stews. Website:

From this Book: Rue du Haut-Pave It is
here that Anne Hathaway and her new boyfriend - the cold
and calculating one - take a nightly walk in the film,
'The Devil Wears Prada' and she remarks that she has 'totally
lost all orientation' (that's Notre-Dame Cathedral behind
you, you silly girl!) before showing us that she has at
least kept her aesthetic standards by pointing out 'how
beautiful' Paris is.
