The world's foremost travel authority, Arthur Frommer, has posted his 1000th blog entry today on

Mirroring his classic best-selling EUROPE ON FIVE DOLLARS A DAY, Frommer's first blog post on May 8, 2007 was titled "Europe and the sinking dollar: what do we do now?" Since then, Frommer has posted 1,000 short, often humorous, takes on the latest travel trends and advice on affordable travel.

Spanning topics from sea-sickness remedies (ginger) to the most gay-friendly vacation spot (Bermuda), Frommer's blog is read religiously by thousands of travel enthusiasts. Frommer also utilizes his blog to solicit contributions from readers to create an interactive forum for fellow travelers, posing such questions as: Do Power Bars join peanut butter as essential "don't leave home without them" items?

Arthur Frommer is the founder of the Frommer's® travel guides, the author of a twice-weekly newspaper column syndicated by King Features, and the host of a nationwide Sunday travel radio program broadcast to more than a hundred stations by the WOR network. A graduate of the Yale University Law School, his travel career began in 1957 with publication of the best-selling Europe on $5 a Day, which is widely credited with having launched a massive movement by American tourists to Europe. Among the many travel books and guides he has written is The New World of Travel, a Literary Guild selection in 1988, which was an analysis of the entire American travel industry.

Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel recently wrote of Frommer: "What Benjamin Spock was to babies and Alfred Kinsey was to sex, Arthur Frommer became to travel. Like Spock, he wrote with the authority of experience; like Kinsey, he opened up a whole new world. And while the work of those two men has been eclipsed by others, as well as by changing times and fashions, Frommer remains a powerful, and indefatigable, force in his field."
