Romania There hasn't been a better time to visit Romania with excellent flight connections from all over Europe, and a host of low cost airlines flying routes into regional airports. It is no longer necessary to fly to Bucharest if your destination is the mountains or historic towns of Transylvania, the cities of the Banat, the magical unspoilt villages of the Maramures, or even the famous Painted Monasteries of Bucovina. There are now scheduled flights into many regional airports from Vienna, Munich or Budapest connecting with flights from other parts of Europe.
Welcome to the fifth Travel on a Shoestring Carnival for Europe. Here you’ll find European travel tips for those without a lot of money to spend. Photographic inspiration this week comes from yours truly, one of the many intricate details I captured (in this case, a carved door) in June at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. If you’re headed to Spain in August, you’ll want to pop over to Karen Bryan at Europe a la Carte Blog who has a lead on 10 Euro Spanish Saver Rooms from Travelodge. (I’m surprised no one commented the rooms are so cheap because — as I was told by locals on my trip in June — August is simply too hot to enjoy traveling there! Make sure that room has air conditioning, I guess.)
