grandmother is kindly offering to take you and your father to Europe
this summer to visit her homeland? That's very thoughtful of her. Of
course there are a few strings attached to this gift. Before your
family can board the plane to paradise, you need to collaborate with
your team of travel experts to
complete the following tasks:
- Research your
destination to learn about its history, customs, culture, economy,
climate, geographical features, language(s), and food as they may
relate to your visit.
Do not forget to calculate costs at the current exchange rate.
- Create a budget for
your trip using a spreadsheet application. It should include roundtrip
airfare, hotel charges, meals, and other expenses you will incur.
Remember: your grandmother has set aside $6,000 for the trip,
and it must cover everything for the entire week.
- Design an itinerary
for your upcoming vacation using a desktop publishing application.
Detail how and when you will arrive, where you will stay, places you
will visit, and other relevant information.
Keep in mind
that each member of your group should be happy with the plans for your
trip. Compromising will be an essential part of planning.
