THE A5 REVIEW
One of today's classic travel guide book series was launched in 1957 by Arthur Frommer with his groundbreaking book Europe on $5 a Day. Frommer was stationed in Germany when serving in the US Army, and the book was first self-published as a guide for his fellow soldiers on traveling around Europe on a budget. Frommer’s today is one of the most trusted names in travel with hundreds of different guidebooks and a magazine. The advice is straightforward and complete, with a reputation of being especially relevant for older travelers. The company now is run by his daughter Pauline who has introduced the Frommer’s EasyGuide, a concise and particularly well-organized version of the guidebook for those interested on what is most important.

GREAT QUOTES FROM ARTHUR FROMMER
"At its best, travel should challenge our preconceptions and most cherished views, cause us to rethink our assumptions, shake us a bit, make us broader minded and more understanding."
