Rundown for the Week of January 15, 2000

Finding Freud
As much as you might wash your hands or get a flu shot to avoid getting sick on vacation, there are some trips you take that really test your body -- and your immune system -- to the limits. And there are also those journeys for which there can be no protection, where it's your mind that's put through the grinder. We sent The Savvy Traveler's Martin Stott on such an adventure, to Vienna, Austria in search of one of the greatest minds of all time. So if you're at home, lie down on your couch...relax...think about your childhood and come along for the ride as our own Martin Stott takes us with him on his journey to discover Sigmund Freud.

The Poetry of a New Generation
If you're visiting the San Francisco Bay area and you're hungry for something unusual to do on a Saturday night, let us suggest a taste of poetry. Our tour guide is Youth Radio's Jacinda Abcarian.

Customs: Behind the Scenes
Why are some of us searched while others aren't? To answer that question and to give us a better sense of the customs process, we spoke with Joseph O'Gorman, who is the U.S. Customs Service Supervisory Inspector stationed at the customs headquarters in Washington D.C.

Next Week
Sure, it's the dead of winter, but enjoying the cold is just a question of attitude.

"Well, you really have to embrace winter if you live in Canada, especially a city like Ottawa. If you squirrel away through the winter, it really becomes unbearable."

See how a frozen river transforms a city into a winter wonderland. We also talk about monasteries and convents where tourists are welcome to spend the night. And some crazy stories when a professional traveler tells his worst disasters.

"We had a bizarre encounter with a drunken Tibetan who climbed up on the hood of the car and he tried to head-butt his way through the windshield."

Sort of puts your lost luggage into perspective, doesn't it? More tales of woe and discovery when you jump on board during next week's journey with The Savvy Traveler.
