Well, according to this[^] . . . wait for it . . . almost there . . . you are right!

My excuse (actually likely correct, but it was a while ago) is that I probably confused it with that "Europe on $5 a Day" concept running around. Our biblical tome was "Let's Go Europe" and ISSTA was our travel agent (except to/from NYC/Luxemburg, via Icelandic Air, which was $165 round trip.

The other currancies were pretty low and it turned out that, lacking a job for the summer, it was cheaper to send me to Europe with my backpack than let me stay home. (DM, FF 1/4 and 1/5 dollar, respectively, at the time - I think).
