For those of you who are interested in attending the reunion on Crete, scheduled from August 22, 2010 through August 28, 2010, as mentioned in an earlier post, I would suggest that you immediately submit the necessary paperwork to obtain a current U.S. Passport. If you already have a valid U.S. Passport, or have already submitted the necessary paperwork to obtain a U.S. Passport, then I would suggest that you began your search for airline reservations. Usually, a good rule of thumb to follow is: The earlier you purchase your airline tickets, the less expensive they usually are. I purchased my airline tickets for next summer's Crete Reunion just last month.
I am going to provide a few sources that you might use to search for inexpensive airline tickets:
http://www.expedia.com/ http://www.orbitz.com/ http://www.priceline.com/ http://www.travelocity.com/ http://www.cheapoair.com/
I am sure there are other sources on the internet to search for discount airline tickets. Just be careful and make sure that you follow all directions Also, when looking at the various connecting flights between cities, make sure there is a sufficient time between flights to allow for delays, to pass through passport control, and go through customs. You might also want to consider purchasing flight insurance to protect yourself against losses due to cancellations, loss of baggage, illness, political strife, etc.
Take care, stay well, and let me hear from you.
