The very first time I traveled overseas, I was pressed for time and payed over 1,200+ dollars for a nonstop flight from San Francisco to Paris. 

However the next time I flew, I managed to snag a flight from San Francisco to Barcelona for less than 400 dollars. 

With flights being this cheap – you can snag a European vacation for the price it would cost to get across the country. It’s all about careful planning.
