Your Ideal Vacation Notes Page - Transportation Name_________________ Research at least 3 to 5 items in your topic and write answers to the chart categories within the appropriate section. Name Expense/Rates Terms (special rules) Positives for item (Pros) Negatives for item (Cons) Ferry from Harwich to Hook Holland on the Stena Britannica then take train to Frankfurt 68 Euros (~$100)

No special rules Interesting and stress free way of traveling around Europe. Length of travel 3-4 hours by ferry and then another 4 hours on the train. 178 Euros for train tickets leaving at 10:00 No transfers back into London. Might miss connections because timing is tight Cheaper than flying Train to Londons International Train Station and then take

Chunnel to Frankfort Transport from Harwich to London then flying from Heathrow to Frankfurt on Lufthansa Airlines 178 Euros for each leg from London to Paris and then Paris to Frankfurt Or 350 euros. 228 Euros No Special Rules Fun to go through Chunnel. Pain to go transfer trains in Paris. Expensive Only 1 checked bag per

passanger with a 29 Kilo weight limit. Once at airport, a quick flight to Frankfurt. Saves time so we will still have time to sightsee when we get to Mainz Not as expensive as a train. Fairly expensive. Waiting around airports. 2 hours to get to London, 2 hour delay and then a 2 hour flight. Name Expense/Rates Once in Germany take a $630 dollars train to travel the Romantic Road

Drive on our side of the road Which of the options did you choose and explain why you chose this one? I chose flying from London Heathrow to Frankfurt and then renting a car and driving down the Romantic Road. The flight will save time and be less complicated because we are not transferring to different trains or boats and having a car will allow us the freedom to go places that a train doesnt serve on our own time table. Lodging Research then choose lodging for you and a companion (1 room). Where are you going to stay on your trip? Things to consider: Go, or to look up the highest ranking hotels and B&Bs in your vacation area. Are you staying in one place or traveling from spot to spot so that you need multiple hotels?

What activities or tours are culturely unique and special for this place? Go to and visit the Things to do tab for your destination. Or, Google the city and visit the tourist bureau Food Where should you eat while on vacation? Research at least 3 restaurants that you should try while you are on your dream vacation. Things to consider: What restaurants represent the unique food of your location the best? What restaurants serve foods unique to the area? Where would you find the best food in our area? Go to to look up restaurant rankings in all the area cities. Expenses Round trip Airfare to London then Moline for 2 - $3192.24 Round trip Airfare from London to Frankfurt
