In my never-ending quest to see it all, I dropped in the Venitian and took a ride on their gondola. I tried to impress our driver with some Italian from my Language Guide, but he wasn’t from Italy… he was from Iowa.
I went out last night with all of my Garmin buddies, and we visited Paris... the hotel and casino, that is. Did you know that Paris' Arc de Triomphe is 50 meters high (that's 164 feet, according to my Measurement Converter), is situated at the intersection of 12 avenues, and is inscribed with Napoleons victories? I learned that in my optional European Travel Guide. Of course, I'm in Nevada, not France, but Paris Las Vegas features some sized-down replicas of some of the City of Lights' most famous landmarks. And had I met any actual French-speaking denizens, I could have used my Language Guide to greet them with "Bienvenue a Paris!"
For dinner, I treated myself to a meal at the Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas, a replica of Munich's own historic landmark. Of course, had I actually BEEN in Munich, I could have read about it and even navigated to it with my Garmin Travel Guide. As it was, I was able to get 20 percent off my Las Vegas meal, compliments of my plug-in Garmin SaversGuide. And thanks to my optional Garmin Language Guide, I was even able to communicate with my waiter in German -- and order my meal (and er, beverage) in the native tongue. I feature a multilingual word bank, phrase bank, and five bilingual dictionaries. I don't just navigate roads -- I navigate cultures, people! Es ist erstaunlich!
