Flying to Europe

I am planning a trip to Europe. Not just for fun, but because Chris and I might be going at the end of the summer. We are waiting to hear about some internships before we can make a decision. So every once in a while I might post my findings about Europe.

Right now I want to post my ranting about how expensive airline tickets are. I don't even know why I am doing this part because Chris is much better finding cheap tickets.

We would be flying to Europe in August to give us time to save up the money. Mistake #1. I guess that is the most expensive time to fly in the summer, but we don't really have a choice.

I am open to where in Europe we fly. So I was searching to find which city would be less than $700. The best would be $600.

Between Tuesday and Thursday are the best day to fly, so I picked August 4th. Also, we get double miles if we fly Delta, so I have only looked there for right now. The cheapest was $832 to London and ranged to $1080 to Rome or Athens.

Ugh. I really want to go, but I cannot pay that much for a flight. I will find it cheaper. Or most likely Chris will.
