Apologies to Lil’ Chris for the steal. We’re sleepy. It’s the end of a long week, after all.

On our radar screens…

1. Following leads in the German media (like this one we came across in the Rheinische Post) Airscoop tells us that Ryanair might just be interested in buying some Air Berlin shares—just under 11% of the German LCC’s shares, as matter of fact.

2. The Saxony Tourist Board tells us that one-fourth of the domestic “culture” tourism market ends up in the federal state home to Dresden, Leipzig, and Chemnitz.

3. We spied some very good weekly vacation home rates on Dutch travel bargain chain D-Reizen‘s site. Look under “vakantiewoningen” (in Dutch).

Over & out, Cheapos.
