So far, we have yet to hear of anyone cancelling their planned European vacations. But a few of our friends are making their way to Europe (or have already made their way) just ahead of the season to further take advantage of good deals. Indeed a friend who just returned the other day from a three week trip to Europe (flying in and out of Rome) said that the hotel he stayed in the first night in Rome was considerably more expensive when he returned on his last night because it was closer to tourist season.
Meanwhile our own hopes for another European adventure this summer were dashed by family-mandated trips to the East Coast and Hawaii. Still, we have $500 in American Airlines credit to burn and if we see an opening in our schedule, we're gonna take it.
But enough about us, what about you? Are you still traveling to Europe this summer? Are you packing your Rick Steves-signed guidebook and making your way to the Continent? Or are you sticking closer to home? Wherever you're planning on going, we want to know.
