We're going to England and Scotland in May 2014 for our second international trip and hope you can join us!
Our 10-day trip will include visits to London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland, and several points of interest between the two cities.
• a ride on the London Eye, a cruise on the Thames, and a show featuring highland dancers and bagpipers
• seeing famous landmarks like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace (and watch the changing of the guard), and the "old town" and "new town" of Edinburgh
• touring St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, and the British Museum (which houses the Rosetta Stone), Stonehenge, the Roman Baths, Shakespeare's birthplace, Edinburgh Castle, the medieval city of York, and more!

Frequently Asked Questions
What do you think airfare will be like for May 2014?
Based on past research, I think it'll be around $1000 per person, round-trip to/from London. Fares for May won't open up for a while, but start doing price alerts to get an idea of what is typical. (Registered families can also share our "fare finds" as we go along.) If you plan to add on to the trip, consider adding days before our dates instead of afterwards. Once you hit June, fares increase dramatically (which is why I chose May for this trip).
What will the weather be like?
Tempatures toward the end of May usually average in the 60s-70s, with change of rain averaging around 50% (which is actually good for England). Pack clothes that you can layer, plus an umbrella.
Can my student attend without a parent?
My trips are family trips. Parents, aunts/uncles, grandparents, or other responsible adult must travel with their children.
