Everyone here has a goal to travel around Europe and since NYU was so kind as to give us an entire week off of school, we’ve planned ahead of time a week long tour which covers Venice for four days, Barcelona for another four and then off to Fez in Morocco for one day. My roommate and I looked at Ryanair and found that they had cheap discounted flights for the dates between October 13th and November 31st as long as we booked before a certain date. So we booked our flights ahead of time and managed to spend only 368$ on the whole trip including hotels. I worked for Starwood hotels before so with my discount I got a room in this Westin hotel in Venice, which is right on the water. We’re super excited and also relieved to have it all planned so early, definitely a good idea to get all travel planning done in the first few weeks.
