With the Euro at a multi-year low, now is a good time to head to Europe. Two recent titles will fill the reader in on Berlin’s turbulent history:
Berlin Now: The city after the wall by Peter Schneider, translated from the German,
and Berlin: Portrait of the city through the centuries, by Rory Maclean.
French ghosts, Russian nights & American outlaws: Souvenirs of a professional vagabond by NYT columnist Susan Spano covers, as the title suggests, some European countries in addition to the US, Vietnam, China and Mexico.
Travelers wishing to contribute to Latin America’s developing countries can research their options in Volunteer vacations in Latin America by Amy E. Robertson. The index lists 13 Spanish-speaking countries which in turn list organizations by name. Work in wildlife conservation, with children, and teaching English are most popular.
