If you love to travel, glad to meet you. I work at Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois. Through the college, I've enjoyed some amazing travel that I'd like to share with you. Even better, Parkland has some wonderful travel opportunities coming up soon (a Broadway weekend; Spain in 2010, just to give you a "teaser.").
I'd always loved the idea of travel. It sounds so romantic and adventurous, sipping wine in Tuscany, or dining at a charming little bistro in Paris. But, let's face it: you've got to spend some $$, you've got to schedule the time, and you've got to make all the arrangements, like passports, flights, hotels. The idea of travel was much easier for me.
A few years ago, I decided to take the plunge and go on a tour sponsored by Parkland College. The tour was to London, probably my number 1 choice to visit (give me a break; I was an English major in college). Long story short: Loved the entire experience. The price was affordable and absolutely all the little details (that I hate) were taken care of (itinerary, reservations, hotels, flights, transportation in London, transportation to and from airports).
In future posts, I'll ask some fellow travelers to share their favorite moments and places. We'll add some photos. And, we'd love to hear from you. Till then .... all the best.
