So, I did something crazy today. I booked myself a trip to London and Paris, crazy right? Well, I love to travel. And I haven’t gotten to do a lot of it. But now, why not?
I booked the trip with EF College Break, as long as you are between 18 – 28, you can book a tour with them. I’m not going anytime soon, its actually next August – and I made sure my birthday was right in the middle of it!
Let me tell you about the trip!
We spend 3 days in London and 3 days in Paris. It’s a guided tour for the most part, the first and second days in London are guided days, the first also includes your arrival and a welcome dinner. The second is a city tour. The third day is a free day to do whatever you want! The next day you travel to Paris via the Eurostar.
What’s the Eurostar? I asked the same thing. It’s a high speed train that travels between London and Paris, as well as some other cities. From what I’ve read, it will take a couple of hours to travel to Paris. The rest of that day we will be sightseeing then ending the evening on a river cruise and seeing the Eiffel Tower.
The next day is more sightseeing and guided tours, and the final full day we are allowed a free day! I did opt for the excursion to the Palace of Versailles – because why not? And then, finally, we head home.
How amazing does all that sound?? And honestly, it didn’t cost that much. It’s about $2800 for the entire trip. Granted, I still need spending money for food and anything extra – but that $2800 includes flights, travel and all accommodations.
And with EF College Break, you can pay monthly, with no interest as long as you do Autopay. So I’m paying a little over $200 a month for the next 12 months to pay for my trip – again how cool? (I did pay some upfront.)
So I’ll keep you posted on this. I do plan on taking at least one more trip with this company after this one, I turn 27 next year during this trip!
(Which means I turn 26 here in a month!!)
