Traveling: Just Do It!!!

I am absolutely in awe of how many opportunities there are for quick easy travel while studying abroad.

Places I was able to visit:

  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Berlin, Germany
  • Monoco
  • Nice, France
  • Paris, France
  • Milan, Italy
  • Rome, Italy
  • Venice, Italy
  • London, England
The main ways that I used to get around were Ryan Air and EasyJet. These are popular airlines that fly throughout Europe. There are 3 main airports in London that you would utilize:
  • Stanstead
  • Heathrow
  • Gatwick
Between these 3 options, you will have NUMEROUS opportunities for fun places to travel all across Europe!

Getting to the airports in London proves to be a fairly easy and cheap task as well. Using the Hatfield train station you would be transported into King's Cross in the heart of London and from there catch a bus to the airport you are flying out of.

The beauty of traveling in Europe is how cheap it can be. If you plan your trips in enough time in advance, you can make the most of your time there. [2-3 weeks] I had a round trip plane ride from London to Dublin for $35!! If you can find the great deals, they're out there!

If you are just looking for quick trips while staying in England, London offers so many opportunities for wonderful sight seeing, historical venues, and an adventurous night life just by hopping on the train from Hatfield to King's Cross ($12/40 minutes)

My favorite part of my experience abroad was the traveling opportunities. I would recommend as many trips as you possibly could go on because those are the memories you will make and the moments you will cherish for always!

Again, if you have any questions. Feel free to contact me.
