AP degree in hospitality and tourism management

I am now 3 weeks into my education so i though i wanted to share a little something about it with you guys.

It is a two year academic education which is basiclly event management but it specializes in hospitality and tourism. We are right now working with the local cities to improve the tourism there.
It is a learning by doing education, so everyhting we make and plan can be used by the city or some communities if they want, so we are actually helping real companies. Not just reading or pretending we are about helping them by writing an assignment.
This week we acutally moved our lecture to a castle (Spøttrup borg) just to be in the element of the "tourism".

I of course want to go the "travel" way. I want to work with travel agencies and plan peoples vacations into the smallest detail. Now that i already have a travelguide education I think that could be ideal. I want to make sure that as many people as possible gets some possitive experiences out of their vacations. And as many as possible!
I can also use it myself to find the cheaps ways to travel and where to travel.

As a part of the education, we are moving the lectures to Florida at FIU next year for a month. It is not everyone who is going and of course there are lectures at home too, but it is a bit more fun to go to Florida. But more about that later!!

In the 3. semester we have to find a company for an internship. I don't know where to go yet, but i really hope i can go to London, now that my lecturer have some connections over there. I have also been thinking about writing the Warner Bros Studio in London, and see if they want me for 3 months. How awesome would that be?
