Trip Planning: A Quick Euro Roadtrip

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 4.42.21 PMLast month Kim, Lucas and I took a quick trip to Oslo, Norway thanks to an awesome mistake fare from Wideroe. While the fares were hot (low), I managed to book 3 trips for us at amazing prices.

I am writing this trip planning post from my room in Lake Como, Italy. I usually like to write about upcoming trips/ trip planning before we go away. However, due to an upcoming potential storm in the NY area, I was able to get my flight switched and we flew a day early.

I hung up the phone not feeling any more confident that we would be flying if the snow started falling on Wednesday night. Continue reading Wideroe Chat To The Rescue

Thanks to the amazing Wideroe mistake fares back in November we’ll be starting off our travels earlier than usual this year.

Tonight we leave on our first international trip of 2014.

We’ll be visiting Norway for the first time. This will be a short trip so we’ll only be visiting Oslo. If we have time and the weather permits, we might try to do a short day-trip outside the city.
