Transatlantic flights are more affordable right now than I've ever seen them. For flights leaving in late February and early March, one can get to Brussels or Frankfurt for under $400. Flying to Dublin, including fees, costs $350. I'm not talking about one-way flights. These are round-trip. Go to one of those delightful ticket-finding websites and experiment with various cities and dates. The results will, I assure you, be beautiful. I've managed to scrape a bit of money together for the first time since I've been home, and I'm honestly considering running off somewhere for a week. I'm not sure it will ever be so affordable again, so it seems foolish to stay home.
