Despite my apparent inability to speak in complete sentences while on a cell phone to cell phone call, my interview with USA Today resulted in a few lines in this article: European Bang for Your Buck.
There are still ways to travel in Europe without draining your life savings. It just takes a little more research and effort than before. I like that they also talked to the guys at Eurocheapo.com—that’s the best resource I’ve seen for listings of inexpensive hotels on the continent.
Also, and this is pretty obvious, travel there before the summer comes. Despite the dollar’s woes, Europe received a record number of visitors this past summer. That means packed hotels, packed attractions, packed planes, and of course high-season prices.
