So tomorrow I get on my plane to Prague. This is the longest trips I’ve been on since 92 and I’m not quite sure how much or what to bring. I tend to travel light but I will need to bring a check in bag this time.
I am heading to Prague as part of a study abroad group. There are 39 of us going and I am taking Digital Photography 101. I don’t think that there’s a better way to live and see Prague than a trip like this.
First of all, it was fairly cheap, about $2,600 for the month. We are staying at NYU dorms. We are going as a fairly decent size group and living together. I should always be able to find someone to go somewhere with.
The field trips are all included in the price , except for Amsterdam (edit went to Budapest instead), in which a small group of us are taking a 3 day trip over.
The course syllabus looks like this:
Monday – Wednesday: Class 9am to 12pm, local field trips in the afternoon
Thursdays (Daily Field Trips): Prague Castle Tour, Jewish Quarter, Cesky Krumlov, Karlstejn Castle
Weekend Trips: Vienna 3 days, Budapest 3 days ($500 extra cost estimated)
So overall, it’s a $3,100 trip for 5 weeks, not including food. I was able to get my plane ticket using miles racked up from my ebiz. The ticket was only 55,000 miles.
I will have my laptop and internet so I can take care of biz and post photos and updates. Should be a fun time.
