Very interesting book by an expert travel adviser. Many good ideas, however, a large part of the book is related to specific loocation and trips. Therefore, this becomes a document that you will reference over time as you have the opportunity to visit the speciifc area. The downside is that the information may be outdated by the time you can use it. One person found this helpful.

This book contains mostly information of marginal use to most travelers. In addition, the latter chapters of the book contain several inexcusable editorial errors and omissions. Surprising, given the reputation of the author, and the quality of his previous books. In retrospect,I would rather have waited for an update of his voluminous compendium, Travel Detective's Bible I hope one is forthcoming.

The official Federal Aviation Administration site, www. Alternate Airports As a contrarian traveler, I'm a big supporter of choosing alternate airports over the major international airports. It can save you time and money, and, best of all, you can skip the crowds. Think outside of the box. Almost every metropolis has an alternate airport or a nearby city with a smaller airport that can get you close to where you need to go--and the hassle of a one-stop flight or driving an hour or so to get to your destination is far more palatable than being stuck for 6 hours on a runway.
Heading to Washington, DC? Think Baltimore. San Francisco? Try Oakland, which is just a few miles away but a million miles from the fog and congestion. Consider the case of a friend of mine, who was stuck on the nightmarish delay of JetBlue Airways on Valentine's Day in Here's the e-mail she sent me after getting off the plane. I arrived at the airport at a. We didn't board the flight until about 5 p. The airplane was in riot mode; people were everywhere, screaming, crying--mothers with babies, trapped with all of us on the plane- -with no diapers I even gave one woman a T-shirt from my carry-on bag.
We had only Terra Blue chips, water, and soda, but that ran out; toilets overflowed; we could not get off. People were on the phone with their attorneys, people were yelling at each other, babies crying; it was really horrible. We finally got back to the terminal at 1 a. I then had to search for my luggage downstairs until a. I managed to book a flight on Continental, traveling the next morning at 8 a.
I took a taxi over to the Continental terminal, only to sleep on the floor for a few hours before I got in line at a. I was in a massive line, as you can imagine, and by the time I reached the counter, they told me I was too late for the flight. I gave up, grabbed a cab, and went back into Manhattan. Next, I tried calling JetBlue, but their toll-free number just gave out a recording that said they were not taking calls and to call back--and then the connection was cut off.
That's when my friend called me. She was literally trapped in New York with no way to get back home to California. A few hours later, I got an e-mail. She had reached the airport easily, and Southwest had booked her on a flight from Long Island to Midway in Chicago, with a quick change of planes back to Los Angeles. And she got home. Here are just a few of my favorite examples of alternate airports. Now, on top of the Ryanverse and his own Jericho Quinn series, Cameron is launching a new series. Box and William Kent Krueger.
