CRESTVIEW — Northwest Florida State College students and Crestview Sister City members traveling this year to Noirmoutier, France, along with anyone else, can learn more about trip preparation.
Europe Bound, a free seminar for independent travelers to Europe, is 6 p.m. March 18 at the Crestview Public Library.
News Bulletin Arts and Entertainment Editor Brian Hughes will present the program, a condensed version of three-night seminars he developed for the Tulane University Center for International Students and Scholars and has taught at Northwest Florida State College.
Following the seminar, travelers will know what kind of luggage to tote, when they shouldn't tip European waiters, and why they won't find train timetables for Cologne under "C" in German train station literature racks. Riding on Europe's intricate rail network, having memorable meals on a budget and finding affordable and memorable lodging are other topics.
