Rundown for the Week of March 25, 2000

On the Prowl: Star Maps of Beverly Hills
It's getting to be that time of year again when many of us gear up to fasten our eyes to the television set for the Oscars. However, if you're intrigued by the life of movie stars when they're off screen, try picking up a star map next time you're in Hollywood. Our host Rudy did. Find out what happened.

Coffee, Tea or Novacain
One of the good things about being an air courier is that you're literally forced to travel with only a carry-on, so you don't have to waste time hanging around the airport waiting for all of your bags. Not that it's all that bad, being stuck at an airport these days. Now there are bookstores, cyber-centers, Body Shops, play areas for kids... But while airport commerce has diversified, The Savvy Traveler's Wesley Weissberg has noticed one service at New York's Kennedy Airport that has her puzzled.

A Parent's Perspective: Air Travel
When did it happen? You used to travel with nothing but a backpack and Kerouac's "On the Road". Now it's a diaper bag, three teddy bears and a copy of Investor's Weekly. You board a plane and instead of avoiding the woman with the screaming kid, you're the one that everyone's avoiding. The Savvy Traveler's Marjorie Sun knows the feeling well

Spa Finders
Get ready to relax because we're going to learn how to find a spa that fits your lifestyle and your pocketbook. Rudy talks with Cheryl Sciro, host of the "Spa Finders" radio program.

A Pleasant Surprise
We hear from a kid who didn't want to fly anywhere, least of all to Korea to visit his family. Find out why he's now a Savvy Traveler.

Next Week
We visit West Virginia's most posh vacation spot. You won't believe all the activities to keep you busy.

"You can bowl, learn to cook fine cuisine, handle live falcons, go horseback riding, white water rafting or even learn off road driving in a land rover."

Not only that, this place is even supposed to survive a nuclear attack. Talk about a full service resort! We're also going to hear stories of your most embarrassing moments on the road. Then, the irony of a luxurious train ride up the Malaysian Peninsula.

"Sitting there eating fresh croissants, looking out the window of this train it was very difficult to watch people with their houses flooded out."

Experience the reality and romance of this railroad journey during next week's edition of The Savvy Traveler.
