EF Tours is offering a $200 discount through September 20 for the Study Abroad Trip to Barcelona, Nice, Cinque Terre, and Florence May 20-29, 2020.

NCTC English Faculty member and tour leader Kristen Weinzapfel says, “This is a great time to enroll in an EF payment plan. With this trip, students have the opportunity to enroll in a Creative Writing course where they will share their experiences and images from the trip to create a travel journal.” Enrollment in the course is not a requirement of the trip.

Jill Swarner, who is the Honors Coordinator at NCTC, will teach the course and explains, “many students enjoy earning college credit on the trips, but we always have a number of travelers who aren't interested, or don’t need the college credit, which is fine. Enrolling in the course is not required.”

The theme of the trip is the Mediterranean Sea’s influence on the history and modern culture of these three interconnected nations. Some of the popular stops on this trip are Gaudi’s works in Barcelona, dinner on the French Riviera and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

NCTC student Morgan McPherson traveled to Paris and Amsterdam last May, and is looking forward to this Mediterranean trip. She says, “It is fun to experience different cultures and a different way of life outside of the norm. I enjoyed the food and hearing the language. I’m taking a Spanish course this semester and I want to try to speak the language as much as I can on the trip.”

Enrollment is open to NCTC students, faculty, staff, friends, and family. Here is a link to the full itinerary -www.efcollegestudytours.com/2212607yt
