Palermo field-trip dates

Please make arrangements to book your flights to Palermo, Italy:

The dates are:
Departure Sat 09 November
Coming back Sat 16 November

Us tutors (CJ / FXS) are taking the easyjet flight going out from London Gatwick Sat 09 November at 11:45 arriving 15:35 in Palermo.

Alternatively you can go with ryanair (slightly worse, but same type of budget airline) We suggest you avoid travelling with hold baggage, save costs, but also travel lightly. It's not good to take too many things....

Coming back on Sat 16 Nov (Palermo - London) you can pick either easyjet or ryanair. up to you.

Make sure you have passports and visa(if needed) in place. this is your responsibility. 


RE accommodation. Just to be clear:
We will all stay in the same place. It's a former monastery / now hostel / B&B: Collegio di Maria - Palermo. We will do tutorials / working together so no time to waste getting lost, etc... and €20 a head / per night is pretty good value.

We need exact numbers to confirm the reservation. 
If you have not signed up on the field-trip list circulated on Friday, send us a e-mail ASAP confirming your participation. By signing up you will be expected to pay for your accommodation (even should you later not be able to come).

Us tutors are coordinating the accommondation for all participants with the hostel. This is something you don't have to do. We hope all this is clear? - if not e-mail us.
