Post Fall Break Travels

Fall Break is over and with it any long length of time to explore the countries surrounding you. Oh wait, that is not true!  All Saint’s Day is upon us, holiday not known to many students besides an extra day off school to be used to travel. In actuality All Saint’s Day is the day in Western Christianity where all saints known and unknown are honored. Regardless of whether you value its history or not a long weekend is upon us!

The semester is creeping to a close and with that we think traveling to Christmas markets and the Alps but that is not the case. All Saint’s Day gave us the chance to offer Greece Long Weekend. This 5 day trip lets you visit the island of Corfu and soak up the last rays of the beach season.

If you do want to see other magnificent cities of Europe skipping the blistering heat and long tourist lines now is the time to go. We have upcoming trips to Budapest & Vienna and more. Many upcoming trips make it possible to visit two of these cities in one weekend. Visit Budapest & Vienna or Vienna & Salzburg absorbing the unique cultures of these cities.

We also cannot forget about how cheap it can be to fly within the European Union. Ask your favorite Bus2Alps employee the best sites to check out for the cheapest prices. We have great Fly-In trips to Ireland, Paris and Barcelona coming up. Just hop on a plane or train meet us in the city and we take care of the rest. Bringing you around and stuffing enough into the trip you will feel like you were there for a week.

So as this weekend is coming up think about the significance of All Saint’s Day but most of all take advantage of your time in Europe. Soon you will be boarding your flight to the States and no one wants to be thinking “I should have visited…”.

Prague & Munich

By Becca Pilolla

There’s only one word that really describes Prague, and it’s fairytale. It’s so easy to get caught up in what the city of Prague has to offer. Form the huge castle, to the gorgeous Cathedral at the end of it, from the Old Square, to the cheap food! What kind of fairytale doesn’t include great beer that’s cheaper than water? It’s such a magical place. The John Lennon wall is one site you can’t miss either! All the cool graffiti and people’s expressions of peace is so fascinating. Walk across the Charles Bridge, and you will sure get a feel of the kind of atmosphere Prague is filled with.

Art, music, culture, vintage, gothic, my list of descriptions can go on, but let’s be honest, you just need to go there and check it out for yourself, I promise you wont’ be disappointed. Make sure to hit it up and Czech Prague off your European list!


And since you’re heading to Prague for the weekend, why not take another historical pit stop along the way, and check out Munich for a day? The history and architecture there is another must see. The way the city has overcome all that happened during the wars is really neat. One of my favorite things I’ve ever done is Europe is the bike tour in Munich. The stories, the sites, and of course what’s more European than riding a bike through the streets of Munich, Germany? You actually feel like you’re biking through history. The guides of Frankie’s Bike Tours make you feel like you’re there in that moment in history. From standing outside the Hofbrauhaus where Hitler used to have his meetings, to the streets the Nazi’s used to occupy, to biking through the gardens eating great sausages and drinking a big iced cold stein.


You can’t leave Europe without holding that stein as big as your face, showing off to all your friends how fast you can chug it; or your jumping pic in front of the Lennon wall.  Your Euro-trip is simply not complete without a weekend to these places! Summer time in the USA is filled with beaches, but we’re not in the USA anymore, so it’s time to spend your summer like a European, and hit up its top sites during this gorgeous season!
