[quote]lynx, what's the best website to compare flights and what not?
skyscanner is a personal favorite of mine. It is a very good starting point.
If you have flexibility in your schedule then try kayak explore. This shows the cheapest options for a given set of criteria you provide...

[quote]As a working man now I appreciate your approach. This makes a lot of sense on a tight schedule.
Exactly. If I ever do a full time MBA program, then I am taking off work a couple of months early and touring Europe without a concern in the world.
After college, you have all th...

As of now, I have one friend on board with me. Working on one more. So most likely will be 3 friends backing through Europe.

Tips off the top of my head:
- fly into one city and out of a different one
- Once you go to southern Italy, fly to another city/country - italy is a massive bottleneck and a waste of time to backtrack the entire length. It is super easy to fly out of FCO (Rome) to anywhere in Europe.

All of Belgium (lived there for a little over a month)
Northern France (Epernay and Reims)

viagogo is used by quite a few teams.
You can definitely get tickets if you are willing to pay. There will be scalpers and you just have to make sure you are buying legit tickets.
If you are there for a trip, then seeing your team live in England means there is basically no price threshold to...

Add Tory Burch, Burberry, and Michelle to the list of licensors For Fossil. There are a lot of companies across the price spectrum. Your post covered most of them though :cheers:...

This is incorrect. Fossil is the licensee of MK for watches. Fossil does not own MK but they do have licensee / licensor relationships with many designers. Fossil makes the watch and markets it under the guidance of the licensor....
