Europe has been the most popular attraction spot and mostly the preferred vacation destination spot of most travelers. For people who are looking to travel specifically around Europe, there are two most common country destinations out there, and that is France and Spain. There are many particular reasons why these two countries are historically popular for tourists why the keep on coming back.France is an easy country to go to, particularly to their excellent transport links between the UK, it has favorable weather and the friendly welcome attitude of the locals there makes this a popular choice. When traveling to France, the Eiffel tower is the most popular and desired European travel attractions. The Eiffel tower is iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. The tower is the tallest building in Paris and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.Spain, although being a little farther away, has benefited from the fact that it offers a great wonderful sunshine climate and has relatively cheap prices. Spain is among the best travel destinations in the world not only for its geographical condition also because of its own traditions and culture, great cuisine, and variety of beautiful places to see. Among the popular cities in Spain are Madrid and Barcelona.London is also an amazing city in Europe and a must visit place once you are in Europe. London has beautiful buildings and iconic landmarks that are popular worldwide. When visiting London, never miss to visit Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Once you are there, you will be able to see the breathtaking views of the river Thames.Europe is not just an excellent travel destination but they are also the best home. Mingling among the locals is the best way to learn from their real culture. Italians linger for hours over dinner on a sidewalk café. The fashionable French strut down le Champs-Elysees and the Spanish head to the bars in the evening for tapas and pintxos. It is very affordable because the economy is improving and the dollar is going up slowly, meaning you will get more euros for your American dollar.Ideally, one should give three weeks for a trip to fully experience all Europe has to offer. In order to save money and time when traveling throughout Europe, purchase a Rail Pass. To choose the best European travel destination that is right for you, research the topic extensively on the internet, or visit a travel agent well versed in European travel.
What do you love most about travel? I love the feeling of freedom from my day-to-day routine, freedom from pressures, and mostly freedom from stress! Plus, the adventure of seeing new sights, meeting new people, and immersing myself in another culture.So how do you get that without actually traveling? My favorite way is to read a great book. It can be an old favorite, or a new adventure, but it has to pull me right in and keep me there so snuggly that I can’t even think about anything else! My whole body says, “Aaahh.” Then I get excited about what’s going to happen next. The atmosphere and adventure of another time and place can work its magic to make me feel I’ve left my own home and flown off to some great new experience.My most recent favorite book for that type of “travel without travel” is Adventures of a World-Traveling Scientist by Stanley Randolf. Imagine discovering secrets of unusual cultures, weird animal species, new perspectives (like “following your Soul Voice”), and scary moments just around the corner! From China to Rarotonga, I felt very-well-traveled, like an aristocrat from earlier lore.Then there is foreign film with subtitles in your first language. You may find yourself thinking differently about life after watching something that takes place in another land. But I still prefer the books!Another way to travel without traveling is through finding new cultures right at home! Or nearby, if you can get to a larger city. Most towns have at least one ethnic restaurant that will not only serve new-to-you food, but will delight you with a unique atmosphere or artwork and music, and possibly even entertainment native to the owner’s original culture.Still, books are the best to me, because I don’t have to eat the unfamiliar cuisine if it sounds really awful, but I can pretend I’m still open to it. And with a good imagination, books can make you fly away to lands unknown with a joyful freedom of heart and soul!Imagine yourself where you want to be. The beach in Hawaii? The Taj Majal? The Great Pyramids in Egypt? No matter where you long to go, if you read about it, you will have a greater feeling of being there than with video, though that may help. Simply think about not just how it would look to you, but how it would smell, sound, feel emotionally, and even feel physically when your feet hit the sand, or your hand touches a very old stone. It can become very real and truly turn into a “mini-vacation.”
