Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come to once again question the borders of the European continent along with its penchant for sequins and a strong dance beat. It is a time when old alliances are totaled in “points” and everyone is reminded just how many countries the former Yugoslavia has now become. Mesdames et [...]


I recently discovered a post by the folks over at SkyScanner entitled Satellite Airports – do you know where you’re going?  While I know that Schoenefeld Airport lies 17 rather than 71 km from Berlin, I did think the *idea* was a good one; nevertheless, the chart needed more information:  HOW do you get to and from [...]


Welcome to the fifth Travel on a Shoestring Carnival for Europe. Here you’ll find European travel tips for those without a lot of money to spend.

Photographic inspiration this week comes from yours truly, one of the many intricate details I captured (in this case, a carved door) in June at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

I returned from my second trip to Sweden last week and gathered a few more tips for no-budget travelers headed to Stockholm via Nyköping (Skavsta Airport). Find them after the jump.


I know it seems like we just got back (here too, here too), but the blog’s off again . . . this time to Sweden, land of the suitcase-thieving dwarves?  Just another reason to keep your suitcase locked anytime it’s out of your hands.  Thanks to Courtney for the tip!  Back Wednesday.

in Sweden, Travel

Without any tips, tricks, or recommendations from my readers *sniff* I am off to Stockholm without my computer. I will update again on Sunday upon my return.
In the meanwhile, I’m interested to know which destinations are on your “must see before I die” list — that is, I suppose, trips that seem expensive or [...]


I’m on my way to London town, to celebrate my birthday (Friday) on 2-cent RyanAir tickets.
I will try to get off a couple posts while on the road, depending on internet connectivity. Am still happy to receive any and all tips on London!
Before I go, I’m putting out another call for reader tips on [...]


As I mentioned in my RyanAir sale post, I’ll be traveling to London and Stockholm in October — not exactly low-budget travel meccas, especially for travelers with the dollar in their pocket.
These are destinations I’ve never been, but I know some of you faithful readers have visited or even lived in these two cities. [...]
