*Travel Ideas: Why Europe Never Disappoints

There are some pretty amazing places to see in the world. Some of them might feature quite highly on your bucket list. But we’re all different. We want different experiences, sights and culture from our travels. What if there was a way to see it all in one go? That’s not actually possible, but Europe offers a pretty good way to see a lot of it all in one go:

Landscapes, Seascapes & More
Let’s face it, you really have got everything in Europe. There are lakes and forests, icescapes, mountains, valleys, and gorgeous beaches. In fact, it is perhaps the amazing variety of coastlines that makes yacht holidays in Europe so popular. Sail as you like through the Mediterranean. Take in Greece, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. There are so many incredible beaches, island stops, and amazing views to enjoy.

The Arts
If you love city breaks, chances are you take the time to explore the arts and exhibitions available. Music, dance, sculptures and more are accessible almost every day of the year. Some of Europe’s most historic buildings offer dramatic insights into civilisations and cultures that have been and gone and others that continue to thrive. Enjoy a theatre production, an opera, or some street mime. The

Food
Most cities offer great eateries featuring cuisine from all over the world. But each individual country and even each region offers something special you’ll taste nowhere else. Cheeses, wines, cakes, biscuits, ciders, whiskey, and chocolate are all native to European towns and cities. Famous dishes like pizza, beef and ale pie and cheesecake have their origins on this continent. Treat yourself to a few meals out when you’re travelling through Europe.

The Culture
With so many different countries on this continent, it’s no surprise that there are so many different cultures and local traditions to explore. Some countries have several different spoken languages or dialects too. Traditional costume, peculiar festivals, and obscure activities make for a lot of fun if you’re around to witness them.

The Climate 
Europe has snow and unsurpassed skiing resorts. Europe also has sun and unsurpassed beaches. There is something for every season when you travel through this continent. The weather is reasonably predictable for each corner of the continent too. You can expect a few places to offer adequate warmth all year round. And you can also expect snow and ice in others. Of course, some are just rainy most of the time. Others are dry and dusty. What is your preference?

The Journey 
With some of the best road infrastructure, public transport, and waterways, travelling through Europe is easy. You can take a yacht and sail around many of Europe’s most delightful countries. Even some of the waterways and rivers are accessible this way. Most places accept the single currency, so hopping across borders should prove trouble-free. Now all you need to figure out is which language to speak!

Have you visited any destinations in Europe? If so, any recommendations?
