There are many reasons why to travel to Europe, the smallest of the seven continents. Whether you are taking a romantic getaway, a solo trip or a backpacking adventure, Europe has something to offer to everybody, from culture and centuries of history to an incredible nightlife, delicious and diverse food and hospitable people.
Why Visit Europe
History is all over the places in Europe. Medieval Castles, Roman Ruins, Famous Art, Religious Monuments and more.
Maybe is just because I’m a foodie, but no one can’t fight me on the variety and amazing flavors that the European cuisine has to offer. Europe is also home to some of the party capitals of the world, Hip underground clubs, trendy bars; shady pubs and more.
LANDSCAPES AND ARCHITECTURE
Europe it’s undeniably gorgeous. From snow-capped mountains and mediterranean beaches to ancient buildings.
EVERYTHING IS A CELEBRATION
Europeans love to find an excuse to get together and have a good time! With that many countries and cultures, there is always a holiday going on.
Thanks to the creation of the European union, traveling around europe is easier than ever. Travelers can now cross borders freely with a single passport stamp on arrival, and another upon departure.
The culture of Europe is rooted in the art, architecture, film, different types of music, literature. Every country has something unique to offer.
What to expect in Europe
Europe is a continent made out of 44 countries, almost all of them with a different language. Although the majority of the europeans (mostly younger people) speak english, it always help to learn basic words in the language of the country you are going to.
The electricity supply in Europe is 220v, which means that appliances using North American voltage (110v) will need a transformer and an adaptor.
The currency in Europe is the Euro, with some exceptions (like Switzerland, England, Croatia..). You can exchange the currency on the exchange houses at the airports or directly withdrawing from the ATM (you should have contacted your bank before hand)
I’ve found Europe to be quite safe, but just like anywhere else you need to be alert and use your common sense, mostly in the main cities and crowded places. Pickpocketing is a common problem, so keep your valuables close and always be aware of your surroundings.
Europe is a seasonal continent, with negative temperatures on winter and high temperatures on summer depending on where you are going. Take this in consideration and make your bag according to it.
Remember that many countries require that your passport be valid for at least six months (some just three months) after your arrival date before they’ll grant entry to their country. Some of them also require a VISA to enter the country depending on your nationality. Plan in advance and make sure you have everything in order.
