I haven't been following prices of food and lodging and transportation in Europe until recently, but I'm wondering what impact the Euro is having in those economies, such as Portugal, Greece or Spain which are performing poorly. One would think that without the Euro their own currency would be much weaker, and hence travel much more attractive for people coming from a strong currency country. If anything, extra tourists coming in would be helping those economies in such a case.
