Europe is the birthplace of western civilization and human development. But before it was as globally known as it is today, it already had a long, epic history.
The continent birthed many emperors, warriors, and legends, all of whose history you can visit on your travels. With so many conflicts, the epic history of this continent will keep you busy for weeks. You can also see the ruins of these conflicts on your trips throughout the continent.
For most people, Europe conjures images of the United Kingdom and Big Ben. While the UK is an important part of Europe, it’s by no means all of Europe.
The continent is home to 44 countries, from Finland in Northern Europe to Spain, which borders Northern Africa. Each of these countries is an amalgamation of the empires from the past, and it’s very apparent when traveling through them just how diverse the cultures are.
Breathtaking Natural Sights
Europe covers a massive slash of land and stretches from the cold north into the sunny Mediterranean. In between, you’ll find the highlands, tundra, and marine climates, which contribute to the wide array of amazing natural sights.
Whether you want to bask in the sun by the ocean, hike through snowy mountains, or travel through miles of greenery, you can do so in Europe.
The European continent has a diverse mix of people and cultures. And one of the best things we experienced from this mix of people was a variety of great food.
The cuisine changes from one country to the next. One day, you’ll be eating croissants in Paris and the next you could be enjoying Gyros in Greece. All of these places will spark different parts of your pallet.
