Does education leave room for learning?
I used to take a busload of high school students from the community all over Europe. Then, it cost less than $800 for 10 days including the airfare, hotels, two meals a day and local guides. Of course, I worked in as many culturally and historically important venues as possible, but kids being kids they still managed to enjoy themselves.
