After tickets were booked I immediately began to research the area using the methods I suggested in my previous post, #Travel: How To Use Social Media To Plan Your Next Trip Through all those websites I was able to put together a loose itinerary for the group. I wanted to help as most of the people traveling are flight attendants and have a hectic schedule. If you are traveling from the U.S. travel time can be about 2 days each way so...
