After a cheerful Thanksgiving vacation that took Cheapos to Tennessee, Amsterdam, Virginia, Connecticut, and even to adopt a weiner dog, we’re happy to be back in the office.
And what a week it has been! We’ve caught up on our reading, planned several upcoming trips, rid ourselves of Beaujolais nouveau headaches, and found these headlines for your weekend pleasure:

UK travel blogger extraordinaire, Darren Cronian from Travel Rants, has a fun end of year “best travel blog” contest happening through Sunday (editor’s note: we’d love your vote for EuroCheapo as “best corporate travel blog,” but even if you don’t vote for us be sure to check out Travel-Rants.com.)

The National Geographic Intelligent Traveler blog launched a new series on “Celebrating the Season”, featuring local expert interviews across various cities, starting off with Paris.
Have a fun weekend, Cheapos!
