After researching a number of the usual travel websites, I've put together an itinerary that seems reasonable, both for layovers(2-3 hrs), and for cost. I'm aware of Norwegian's strict no-frills restrictions (we're reserving seats but bringing our own food, and carrying on- watching the weight carefully). And I'm booking directly with the carriers. I know there is a bit of a risk due to different airlines, so if I miss a connection, it's not like American is gonna help me get the next Norwegian flight out of EWR. I'm new to the international travel planning so, please let me if anything looks iffy or just plain goofy. I was going to go nonstop but the savings might be too much to pass up here. Thanks in advance.
