Rundown for the week of November 13, 1999

An American Jew In Israel
Traveling as a couple is an act fraught with so many possibilities, it seems equally perfect as a backdrop for comedy or... drama. What will you find out about each other when you're thrown together day and night, eating at the same restaurants, seeing the same sites? And what happens when you choose a place that's really important to one of you, but means nothing to the other? Chicago writers Nancy Updike and Adam Davidson invite us along on their trip to Israel, a place with many questions on it's own, to find some answers.

Next Week
Wait 'til you hear about the mother of all ships that sets sail next week. A Savvy Traveler aims to answer the question...is bigger necessarily better?

"Voyager is so large that the people who wrote the press release announcing her maiden voyage were driven to extremes of analogy: 'as long as a 17-car freight train,' 'the size of three football fields,' 'faster than a speeding dolphin.'"

Is it a cruise ship, or a country? But if you prefer something a little more classic...how about sailing down river with the likes of Handel, Mozart and Dvorak?

"When you play that quartet up against one of these canyon walls and hear it echoing down to the river, it can be really magical."

It's a feast for the eyes and ears on this classical rafting journey, so come along for the ride during next week's edition of The Savvy Traveler.
