Ten days in Europe all to yourself.  No school, no responsibility, pure bliss.  It has suddenly dawned on you that these ten days in Europe will undoubtedly make or break your semester abroad.  These ten days could be the days that change your life.  Bus2alps is here to help you make the most of every second.

For the beach going babes:  Greece Island Hopping

For those of you who haven’t gotten enough sun in Croatia, the Amalfi Coast, and the French Riviera, Greece is the place you need to be for your fall break.  We will kick off the week on the beautiful island of Corfu at the Pink Palace.  Rent a kayak, venture out on an ATV safari,  set sail on the booze cruise of a lifetime, throw on a pink toga and bop around to your favorite beats, and post up at the Pink Palace beach bar.  So many activities, so little time.  Then, it’s off to Athens!  Athens is filled with mind blowing history, the best gyros you’ll ever eat, tons of hookah, and amazing shopping.  Visiting the Acropolis, the Olympic Stadium, and the Temple of Zeus are things one doesn’t forget.  From there, we head to the best place of all, my favorite place in all the land, Santorini.  Santorini is the place that will change your life forever.  Think beaches, think sunsets, think beautiful.  If you don’t believe me, watch Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and I can assure you that you will be convinced.  Anyway, Greece is always a good idea.

For the big city lover: The Northern Loop

Want to hit four major cities in ten days?  The Northern Loop is the trip for you!  Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Paris are the cities you came to Europe to see.  Get it all done during your week off!  If you’re looking for a real life fairy tale where beer is cheaper than water, Prague will be a dream come true.  Want to go to Berlin, see the walls with the murals, check out Germany’s eclectic nightlife?  Yup, you do.  Amsterdam speaks for itself but it’s beauty is underrated.  Canals, coffee shops, and a casual bike ride around the Netherlands never sounded so good.  Finally, we have Paris.  Paris is the place you have always dreamed of going to.  You’ve seen it in the movies, you’ve read about it in books, now is your chance to see it for yourself.  Check out Mona Lisa in her element, chow down on a French baguette as you wonder through the Parisian streets, and of course, pop a bottle of champagne under the sparkling Eiffel Tower.  Yes, that could be you in just a few weeks.

For the adventure seeker:  The Eastern Loop

The Eastern Loop is for those of you who are looking to step outside the box.  Prague, Ljubljana, Lake Bled, Budapest, and Krakow.  Talk about places you’d never though you’d go!  You came into your study abroad experience looking to branch out; step outside your comfort zone.  This trip is the perfect chance to do so.  Plus, if you’re looking to save a buck or two, you definitely can.  One of our favorite parts about this trip is that everything is dirt cheap.  Remember in Euro Trip when they ended up Bratislava and were livin’ large?  That’s Eastern Europe.  Fun fact:  All of Euro Trip was filmed in Prague (we can even take you to the club they filmed at)!  So, let the beauty of Lake Bled take your breath away, go caving in Budapest, and take in the culture of the Eastern Europe!

If these don’t tickle your fancy, don’t fret.  Bus2alps offers a bunch of other fall break options that you can check out here.

Hoping you all fall in love with your fall break <3
