Getting Started...

Before I set out on my fantastic journey through Europe, I thought I should research the places I intend to visit to ensure that I can save a buck. Today I visited TRAVEL CUTS at the University of Western Ontario which is located on the basement level of the UCC building, where I grabbed some brochures and other information. A couple of the brochures that I picked up were the Contiki books for Europe 2009/10. I also picked up the Rail Europe “2009 Europe on Track” book which is a MUST have, as it outlines different rail pass prices, and has a useful European Rail Map inside.
Also visit TRAVEL CUTS or join their page on Facebook "TravelCUTS - Univ of Western Ontario"

Check out the CONTIKI day on Wednesday September 30, 2009 on UWO's campus from 10-3pm at TRAVEL CUTS.

I know I’ll be there :)
