YOUR TRAVEL this summer can
take one of many directions. But
whether you'll be subsisting on a
shoestring budget of going the luxury
route, our advice is the same: plan
ahead. Budget your time and finances
carefully to make the most of your trip.
While this supplement is by no means
complete, we hope it offers at least a
few suggestions for your travels.
For those contemplating a trip over-
seas (and who isn't these days?), we

have tips from the International Center
on planning your trip abroad. See
Pagest and 9. We also feature first-per-
son accounts of visits to several
European nations as well as a list of
festivals taking place throughout the
summer (See Pages 10-14).
FOR THOSE WHOSE budgets or in-
terests force them to stay a little closer
to home, we offer some ideas for
domestic travel as well. You needn't
travel great distances to have an en-

joyable vacation. Detroit - only an
hour away - offers plenty of attrac-
tions. (See opposite page).
If you prefer not to travel by car, you
might consider taking the bus -it's one
of your cheapest options. (See Page 5).
If you like the outdoors and don't mind
hoofing it, backpacking may be for you.
See our tips first on Page 6.
The possibilities are almost endless.
Just be sure to plan carefully before
taking off ...

T RULY EXPERIENCING a
European country is a difficult
task these days, because everything is
'geared to the tourist. In a country like
France, you're likely to be trying out
your four-week crash French course on
another American. The French people
head south for the summer, leaving the
cities full of hungry merchants eagerly
awaiting those American dollars.
But all this can be avoided, and one of
the best ways to soak up a little culture
is to seek out some of the art, music or
wine festivals abundant in Europe.
There are so many jazz festivals in
Europe that you could almost attend
one every day from May to September.
Chances are they beat the Eiffel Tower
any day..

To keep your spirits high for all the

wine fests. A few words of caution: be
wary of wine served without a cork -
it's probably a table wine.

necessarily beyond the likes of
Keynes.)
First on Linda's escort list was a
pair of Puerto Ricans who she said
could "really hustle." They, unfor-
tunately, already had made plans to
visit 2001-an "in" Bronx dump where
Vinnie Barbarino shimmied into John
Travolta, Superstar.
Second choice was Max, Linda's
friend from her days as a waitress
before she discovered unemployment.
Max is 40-ish and bisexual. A nicer guy
I've yet to meet, but let's face it, Dad
would never understand. Linda's
reasoning was clever. Our trio would
undoubtedly resemble a bizarre
menage-trois, assuring swift entran-
ce.
So, clad in my new flouncy
Bloomingdale's dress (purchased in the
basement), I was off with Max and Lin-
da to try our luck at getting into Studio
54 New York's hottest hot spot. ~
THE FAMED DISCO oasis isn't
really much from the out-
side-which was all I saw. The door was
blocked by a velvet-rope and a man
wearing make-up named Mark who
makes a living choosing the lucky few
who will stride past that rope. Mark
doesn't tell people they can't come in,
he simply doesn't tell them they can.
After he ignored us for quite some time,
we realized we would not be among the
night's "privileged few" so we hailed
another cab and sped off to New York,
New York, last year's hottest hot spot.
Once again, the entrance was for-
tified to withstand attacks from the un-
chic, this time by a womah'fiho pk-d&

her head out of a slit in the door, just
like in the movies. Apparently, she was
impressed with our feigned weirdness,
and granted us entrance as the rejects
looked on disappointedly.
After a quick stop to pay our $10 cover
each (yes, $10) we went to the coat
room where Max checked his floor-
length red cape and Linda readjusted
her satin suspenders, and I gawked out
at the patrons who all looked like they
had just stepped out of Vogue.
We were fortunate to find ring-side
seats on the huge circular pillow which
surrounds the dance floor. I sat there
for most of the five hours, awed by the
simulated laser beam lights bouncing
off a huge silver ball rotating from,
a ve the dance floor.
AFTER ASMALL dose of courage
in the form of a $4 scotch and
soda, I ventured out on the floor with
Max to dance, appropriately enough, to
the strains of the Bee Gee's' "Night
Fever." In a totally humiliating display
of awkwardness I began to shuffle my
feet and contort my torso, praying that
nobody was watching. Then, like an an-
swer to my prayers, a dense cloud of
synthetic fog came streaming out of the
ceiling and in no time accumulated on
the floor until I was up to my armpits in
the cloudlike fluff. The perfect
camouflage, I was saved.
The rest of the evening I sat perched
on my section of the communal pillow
watching the crowd disco their cares
away. There was the transvestite in the
slinky white gown, the well-endowed
woman who from time to time lifted her
skirt to herwaist exposing only a pair of.,
sheer pantyhose,- endRieardo the-v

Argentine millionaire who asked me if
Detroit was in New York and if I'd like
to see his nice hotel. Yes, we made quite
a crowd.
But alas, like all good things the en-
chanting evening in disco world came
to an end. The next morning (actually
the same morning) I was back in my
collegiate garb-Bass boots, levi cords,
and V-neck sweater-driving towards
Ann Arbor with three friends and a dog.
And not a moment too soon, as far as I
was concerned.
