It’s so dang hot outside today that we’re having trouble concentrating.  Our office air conditioner is working over time, squirting water on customers entering the Crate & Barrel directly below, yet somehow the line at our favorite burrito cart shows no sign of letting up.

To help treat this heat-induced A.D.D., we’ve turned to Twitter to find some of the best budget travel headlines from around the web:

@benjilanyado: Is London an affordable travel destination? According to Benji Lanyado’s article for the Guardian, it has always been, if you plan accordingly.

@jaunted: Want to cool off by visiting a New York City museum offering free drinks to parched guests? Jaunted has the scoop.

@frugaltraveler: Ever wish  you could go on a trip dedicated to eating good food? Then this article by the NY Times Frugal Traveler is for you!

@andrewghayes: Think Jersey (the old British one) is just a tax haven for the rich? Andy at Europealacarte has some refreshing tips for non-banking visitors.

@travelrants: Our pal Darren over at Travel Rants sounds off on the prospects of space tourism. Don’t read this if you’re Richard Branson.

@travolution: Linda Fox at Travolution has helped us stay up to date on the growing debate about fake hotel reviews on TripAdvisor.

@elliotdotorg: Meanwhile, we couldn’t believe some of Christopher Elliot’s reports about the 5 most disgusting cruise ships in the world.

Have a great weekend, Cheapos, and stay cool wherever you are!

  1. I’m extremely cool in the UK as we’re being battered by torrential rain annd strong winds. Luckily I didn’t have to go out today.

    Thanks for mentioning the post about Jersey (the sort of British one) but It was written by Andy Hayes a member of the Europe a la Carte blogging team, so I can’t take credit for it.
