At UCL we get a week off in the middle of each term called "Reading Week." Basically it's a great time to get caught up on your readings for class...or to travel, depending on how you look at it.
February Reading Week 2011 Itinerary:
Friday: Fly to Hamburg, Germany
Sunday: Bus to Berlin, Germany
Wednesday: Train to Prague, Czech Republic
Saturday: Train to Brno, Czech Republic; fly back to London
