History to boot and incredible variety is the main drawcard of Europe. From bustling cities like Berlin, London and Paris to picturesque seasides in the French Riviera, this is a continent I want to get back to as much as possible.
Europe is truly my favourite continent. It’s charming. It’s historical. It has something for everyone. As an Aussie, the idea of hopping on a train for an hour or two and winding up in another country is entirely a novelty and I love it.
Each country has its own unique charm, local language, traditions and cuisines. It is a literal smorgasbord of travelling fun.
Visited: France, Spain, The UK, Monaco, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands.
