For those of you who are either graduating or just need a reason to celebrate getting done with one more semester without actually attending your classes, there’s certainly cause to celebrate. Sure, you’re going to get blackout on graduation night and make your parents give you expensive gifts, but unless you take a trip with your friends, did you really even graduate? Of course, we all know that the best trips to make all of your Instagram followers send you likes out of sheer jealousy are trips abroad. Not only do I have the best summer trip abroad for you, but I guarantee that your social media feed will look amazing while you get drunk. I honestly can’t think of anything better.
From May 12th to the 14th, London is hosting their first ever prosecco festival, and you’ll obviously need to be there. Prosecco makers from all over Europe will be flying in for you to sample their wines and offer a variety of different classes for you to take (think: wine pairings, not calculus). For about $44 USD, you’ll get a five hour session with 8 glasses (that’s almost two bottles, kids) of prosecco from the best European winemakers, live music, tips from sommeliers, and of course, charcuterie to help absorb the bubbles. For less than $50, you get all of the wine, bread, and cheese your heart (and stomach) can handle, so please, sign me up immediately.
I know you’re all in the middle of searching for your next vacation location to give all of your friends and frenemies social media envy, and trust me, this is it. You’ll be spending your days in Europe, popping bottles for the Boomerang and stuffing your face with bread and cheese when the cameras aren’t looking. Is this heaven? I think it must be. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by popping bottles all day long in Europe. Did your friends who studied abroad get this opportunity? I don’t think so. Throw this one back at them – they deserve it..
