Fodor's Spain 2002 : The Guide for All Budgets, Updated Every Year, with a Pullout Map and ColorPhotos
Release Date: 06 November, 2001
Very poor descriptions.
No background informatiion on anything.
Hardly used it, and when I did for a drive through the Picos de Europa, wished I had followed the recommendation of Lonely Planet. Information on time for drive was correct: two and half hours. But it was not as beautiful (breathtaking?)as Fodor made it sound.
The shorter drive to the Lakes of Covadonga would have been a better choice.
I left the guide in a hotel in Madrid, wishing I had not carried it around for 21 days.
Now I feel sorry if someone finds it and uses it. :-(

I am a big fan of the Fodor's series and I use the travel book like a bible. Therefore, I naturally got this one. I thought it would be perfect because I am currently learning Spanish. The book is well laid out with conjugations and pronunciations. However, when it comes to the finding the translation it fell a bit sort. It just doesn't a have a lot of words that a tourist would need, for example I couldn't even find the word tourist in the darn thing!
