Trip to Europe
Where Futures Begin
 


England, France and Spain in 12 Days
May 2008

Students, consider this an investment in your education and decide to take this trip of a lifetime.  Nothing educates and enlightens like seeing places that most people only read about. 

Touring CompanyEducational Tours/EF Tours, 1-800-665-5364. 
See Professors Darris Hassell, Walt Collins, Chris Judge; or Ms. Laura Humphrey for more detailed information or if you have questions.

Requested Departure Date
May 15, 2008 [length of trip—12 days]. 
The company requires a departure range of about five days for in order to combine groups so travel for all is made more efficient.  EF will do their best to honor our requested departure date, but we may be required to leave on any of the dates in the range.  We will know weeks in advance the exact date of our departure. We will be visiting the following cities/areas: London, Windsor, Paris, Chartres, Loire Valley, Bordeaux, Biarritz, San Sebastián, Pamplona, Barcelona.

Passportsrequired for every traveler
In Lancaster County, passports can be obtained in the Clerk of Court office on the 1st floor of the Court House.  You will need to bring: 2 passport-size photos (can be made at CVS pharmacy, AAA Auto Club, and elsewhere), a “State Seal” Birth Certificate and payment.  Processing time is increasing. It is now taking about 10-12  weeks and EF Tours will require proof of passport well before departure so do this as soon as possible.  If you are not an American citizen there may be deviations from the above information which may lengthen the time necessary to obtain the passport.
