Save Big On College Visits And Student Travels

We recently had the good fortune to attend the infiorata in the charming medieval town of Spello, found in Umbria near Assisi and Perugia.

Meeting Banksy and Brunel in Bristol

The city of Bristol is located in the South West region of England, two hours from London. An historic city with maritime roots, it has been reshaped into a cool mecca of contemporary culture with arts, music, theater, and film performances.

Bristol’s history as a trading port dates to the 11th century and, by the 14th century, trade with Spain, Portugal and Iceland were established. Ships were also leaving Bristol to found colonies in the New World.
