Not Super Rich? Maybe Avoid Europe

Tim Leffel’s Cheapest Destinations has got an
interesting entry
on the price of things in Europe. We’re all aware of how the sinking dollar has caused a dramatic
increase in prices there, but the question is: how bad is it?

He quotes a recent Wall Street Journal article that says: “Travelers who haven’t already bought tickets should be
prepared to pay $900 or more round-trip for a coach seat in the summer months.”

And he goes on to explain that plenty of flights are topping $1,000. Ouch. And for those who think that heading to
Eastern Europe will ease their wallet burden. Probably not. Even once cheap cities like Krakow, Budapest, and Prague
are delivering the Euro blow. Double ouch.
