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 gorgeous that we’re suddenly, unexpectedly, ready to pack our bags for a summer wander through the Lienz Dolomites. (See Lienz, above. Pee-ritty, right?)

2. Doing research for our upcoming Balkan jaunt, we came across Hotel Park, a Ljubljana hotel that looks like a kick-ass place to rest our Cheapo heads. Hotel Park appears to be characterized by that simple central European modernist feel that makes us limitlessly happy. Plus we like the rates: €60 for a double in high season sounds awfully nice.

3. We’ve mentioned ace Euro budget flight finder flycheapo more than once. We realize that we’ve neglected another useful budget airline digest site: attitude Travel, which provides LCC info for Europe and beyond. Check out attitude’s European low-cost carrier map right here.
