Bitten by the Travel Bug

We haven't even been in London for a month and already I'm dreaming of places to travel. There are a LOT of places you can visit from London for very little money:

Trip to Venice: Plane tickets for two adults: 58.66 pounds return
Accomodations: 28 Euros for 4 nights

Trip to the French Riviera (St. Tropez): Plane tickets: 51.57 pounds return
Accomodations: range from 40 Euros to really freakin expensive

Trip to Mykonos Island, Greece: Plane tickets: 200 pounds return
Accomodations for 4 nights: 56.55 pounds

You can also do something called a "rail & sail" from London to Amsterdam, taking both the train and the ferry for 50 pounds return per person. Apparently the views during your journey are incredible... Add a cheap hotel or hostel to that and you've got a hell of a fun weekend.

Venice looks like the best deal right now, but we haven't even really begun to search. Apparently RyanAir is run by a billionaire who is very generous - recently they've begun to offer FREE flights all over Europe - you just have to pay the taxes.

Basically for the price of one or two day's work we can travel to a darn cool place for a weekend or even a week. Can't wait to start seeing everything that Europe has to offer...

Mykonos, Greece

    These places and these prices sound really, really great. Can't wait to spend some time exploring when we visit this spring. We'll have to make a list of places we'd like to see. I'm thinking now of getting a general overview of Europe this visit then concentrate on a particular place next time. The rail and sail sounds spectacular. Love always, Mom
