11 Days, 6 Countries, 1 Unforgettable Spring Break
By Fedorah Philippeaux
Looking for something to do during Spring Break? Are you looking to break away from the usual and ordinary to do something extraordinary? If so, instead of going to Miami or heading off on a road trip, think instead about leaving the country!
There are many young students who would give anything to visit Europe and I strongly encourage you to look into programs that offer an all-inclusive European adventure. One such program is called First Abroad which offers a Europe Express package. You visit 6 different countries in only 11 days and I am sure it’ll be a Spring Break to tell stories about for years to come.
Having lived and traveled around Europe since I was just a year old, I can tell you that if you ever get the opportunity to travel Europe, do it. It’s the sort of thing that changes you and your outlook on the world, and can even open up your appetite for a life of travel. This program offers you the chance to visit London, Venice, Paris, The Swiss Alps, Amsterdam and Bruges among others. You will have a picnic next to the Eiffel Tower, sleep in a castle in Germany, roll a wheel of cheese while wearing clogs in Amsterdam, ride down the river in a Gondola in Venice and even drink your fill of beer or what have you in Munich, Germany.
Honestly, if I had the chance to do it all again, I would probably choose a tour company like this one because they take the hassle of planning and executing into their own hands. One of the most stressful things for me as a traveler has always been researching and finding the best things to do in short periods of time while figuring out the cheapest and most effective mode of transport. In this case, First Abroad will figure out everything to give your group the most amazing trip possible.
The package includes accommodations for 10 nights, 10 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 8 dinners, a trip leader and driver and access to on-site chefs in Venice and the Swiss Alps. The only things not included are the flight cost and any extra things you may wish to do or buy in these cities. Overall, this is a great package and an excellent option for getting away from the ordinary Spring Break. It all comes at a price of less than $1000. Why not give it a try? You’ll be able to see and experience things that many people only dream of and you’ll even enjoy yourself so much that you decide to travel to Asia or Africa the next year. You’ll learn, grow, make new friends, meet new people from all over the world and have the greatest Spring Break ever. You’ll experience the romance of Paris, the beautiful lights of the Eiffel at night, the art and beauty of Venice, the scenery and thrill of the Alps; wouldn’t you say that sounds much better than whatever you had planned for your break? Forget what you’ve seen in the movies, get off your couch and start researching. I’ll see you in Europe!
