Back to Britain With a Visit to Wembley Stadium

June 21, 2013 Peter Jones No Comments

I’ve been football mad all of my life.

When I was a kid, I traveled hundreds of miles every week and visited the outer reaches of Great Britain in freezing cold rain to watch my team. I heard accents from parts of England that I can still replicate to this day and visited places that I have never returned to and probably have no great desire to return to. The northern most parts of England near the borderlands of Scotland are still pretty uninviting. 062113_blog_featured

So here I was in possession of a fabulous ticket to the last great game of the European season. It is a season that stretches from the balmy days of summer through the late spring and lasts longer than any of the great American sports. Actually, it is a season that never really ends because somewhere on the planet, somebody is always playing football, not to mention European Championships and World Cups every other year.

Knowing the important difference between a trip that’s mediocre and one that’s extraordinary, he built ACIS from a deep belief and understanding that ACIS group leaders and participants deserve the best—from itinerary development to hotels to perhaps most importantly, the people hired to guide teachers and students throughout the journey.
