A Spendthrift You Can Count On

It would be difficult to find a travel writer with so comprehensive an understanding of European budget airlines, better experience penetrating local Caribbean culture, and more evolved opinions on Europop than Alex Robertson Textor.

For these, and many more reasons, any budget traveler looking for cheap flights in Europe or an affordable Caribbean getaway should bookmark Alex’s blog, Spendthrift Shoestring. Alex is just recently back from the Caribbean, where he was scouting out travel gems for Rough Guides, and he’ll soon be off for an extended summer stay in England.

Expect top-notch UK dispatches and cheeky humor à go-go.

The best thing about the blog is the mix of the practical — like a rundown of French-style Gites in Martinique and Guadeloupe — and the peripheral — like Alex’s unbelievable visit to time-frozen (and way off-limits) volcano-ravaged Plymouth. And you’ll quickly find yourself hooked on Alex’s short lists.
