Stripes' European summer travel guide
Stars and Stripes May 23, 2002
In Week Two of Stars and Stripes' annual European summer travel guide, we look at rail and air alternatives for those who would rather avoid seeing the sights from behind the wheel of a car. Also, tips on traveling with kids and how to find an inexpensive place to stay, and a guide to some off-the-beaten-path destinations. And last but certainly not least, a reminder for travelers that the scenery may be nice, but it's still a dangerous world.
Last week's stories: Driving in Europe
Sure, you can take buses, trains and planes to just about anywhere in Europe, but for exploring the continent, the best way is by car. You can stop when and where you want. See what you want. Pack as much as you like (as much as will fit in the car, anyway). On the other hand, there are all those creative drivers to avoid. This week, Stripes Travel magazine looks at driving in Europe ... the good and the bad.
