EuroCheapo's Lists Articles

Tuesday List

Here. There. And Elsewhere. 1. Europe A La Carte Blog warns of delays at UK airports. Partially to blame: Spain’s new security rules for air passengers, which seem to us to flirt with violating the spirit of Schengen. 2. Italian somewhat low-cost carrier Volare is hawking a €10 discount on all July flights, if booked » Read more

Wednesday: Regional Tourist Sites, Cheap Digs, More

It’s Wednesday, a.k.a. midweek madness freak out day. On our minds: 1. The Tirol tourist site. First of all, there’s no regional tourism logo as timeless as that white-on-red “Tirol, “the dot of the “i” safely lodged in the cross of the “t.” But beyond that, the Tirol tourism site is just so crisp and » Read more

Monday List: Beer Fests, Cheap Fares, & More

What’s coming up and closing out? 1. Flycheapo tells us that Spanish low-cost carrier Clickair is set to get rid of check-in altogether. Don’t tell the FAA. 2. The Czech Tourist Authority reminds us that a plethora of beer festivals pop up all over the Czech Republic every summer, most stretching from mid-August through October. » Read more

List: Friday Four

Some stuff on our minds as this week draws to close. 1. Ryanair’s new routes in and out of Stockholm’s Skavsta. Ryanair is launching another 13 routes to and from Skavsta. Starting in October, routes between Skavsta and Alicante, Basel, Berlin, Bratislava, Eindhoven, Karlsruhe Baden, Liverpool, Malta, Pisa, Porto, Trapani, and Valencia will kick off. » Read more

Friday List: Some Cool Stuff

Our Friday three. 1. We just got our hands on Time Out‘s Fly Europe 2007/8 guide, an overview of 222 destinations across Europe—including five Moroccan cities. Top notch. We were pleased to see long lists of Spanish, French, and Italian cities, as well as these surprising inclusions: the Faroe Islands, Lithuania’s Kaunas, the Kosovar capital » Read more

Our Wednesday Three: Ryanair & French Music

Our Wednesday Three: Ryanair & French Music

Hmmm. A sleepy Wednesday is upon us. On our radar screens: 1. These ridiculous Champions League Final fares on Ryanair, which start at £299 for one-way fares between Liverpool and Athens and at €399 one-way fares between Dublin and Athens. We repeat: on Ryanair. Really? 2. Simultaneously, Ryanair is offering one million free seats for » Read more

Friday List: Our Five

Some tips. Some things we can’t get out of our head. The usual. 1. Eurovision Semi-Final.

List, Wednesday Edition

Stuff is happening, kids. 1. Jaunted is getting excited about Eurovision, too. 2. The Real Costs project, which measures emissions resulting from air travel, and then compares said emissions to those produced by different modes of transportation, is both wonderful and terrifying. Courtesy of Gadling. 3. On a somewhat contradictory note, we’re waiting slash squirming » Read more

Tuesday List

We’re keen for these things today: 1. Northern Spain. Ben West’s piece in this past weekend’s FT on real estate from La Coruña to San Sebastian has us thinking about Galicia, Cantabria, Asturias, and the Basque region—as travelers always in search of good value, mind you, not as prospective property owners. 2. Clickair‘s Malta-Barcelona route, » Read more

Green Flash: Earth Day To-Do List

Ever since we saw An Inconvenient Truth we’ve been feeling a little environment-obsessed. So in honor of Earth Day yesterday, we’ve made a little to-do green list. 1. Upbraid socially irresponsible family members for their refusal to recycle. Check. 2. Support the Carbon Fund for Europe, which is partnering with the European Investment Bank to » Read more

Friday List: Stuff We’re Digging

Every week should end with a list. The following things are causing tremors in our world: 1. This fellow’s daily photographs on Flickr. Why? Because we’re suckers for stark landscapes, found objects, and Nordic cityscapes. And we like to be able to depend on regularly scheduled aesthetic replenishments. 2. Eurostar’s green turn. 3. Czech Tourism’s » Read more

List: Maribor, Kazakh Stars, Intersky

List: Maribor, Kazakh Stars, Intersky

Here are a few things we’re anticipating excitedly. 1. Maribor. Yesterday Ryanair announced that they’ll begin flying from London Stansted to Slovenia’s second city (see above) in early June.
