<b>Now that's a great idea</b>A nifty, chunky, pocket-sized guide, <b>The Smart Traveler's Passport: 399 Tips from Seasoned Travelers</b>, edited by Erik Torkells, offers a wealth of travel-related tips from the silly to the sublime. Cleverly tricked out to look like a real passport, the book includes nuggets of travel advice collected from the readers of <i>Budget Travel</i> and <i>Budget Travel Online</i> through the magazine's popular 20 Tips column. These are organized into nine chapters that cover trip planning, packing, travel-time, safety, lodging, transport, spending, sightseeing and connecting with fellow travelers and family. From suggestions for using Ziploc bags to an unusual use for a Frisbee (now I <i>know</i> you'll want to buy this book!), both savvy and novice travelers will find all sorts of information that will help ease the discomforts and enhance the delights of any journey.
