I HAD recently returned from a cross-country road trip, and already I wanted to go on another adventure. After sitting at my work desk — the day dragging on — I came across a flight from Salt Lake City to Amsterdam and back for $342. It was a staggering $1000 cheaper than the normal fare.
I booked it immediately.
In April, I went on that trip and explored the Netherlands, Belgium, and Portugal over two weeks. It was one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve ever had in Europe. And it was all because I jumped on that short-lived flight deal.
