Europe Traveler Tips to Remember

Traveling is a great way to know cultures outside of your own. One of the most popular destinations people often flock to is Europe. The continent is composed of exciting countries, each with their own culture you need to discover and appreciate. Traveling can be a tiring and mind-numbing activity though if you did not plan well in advance. Here are some basic tips you should keep to heart if you want your tours throughout the continent enjoyable, safe and free from hassles.

Start with travel options

It is easier to travel the entire continent at this point. There are plenty of options that avid travelers can consider before embarking on a trip. Tourists can opt for buses, Eurostar flights, Eurostar trains, ferries and even caravans and cars. However, if you want the best deal, you can also pick traveling by Eurostar, which many expert travelers recommend.

There are sites in which you can acquire the best air, train or concert tickets. You have to remember though that you need to pre-book tickets as prompt as you can so you can avail of early bird discounts. This will allow you to save up on traveling expenses so you can further splurge on other pursuits.

Make memories and record them

Many people often forget to bring a quality camera or video cam for the trip. A nice smartphone with excellent specifications to capture special moments and views is also great for travel. It is impractical if you purchase a new camera or phone in Europe when you already have on back at home. So remember to pack a digital camera or video camera along with other traveling essentials.

Make sure to tote along chargeable batteries and a universal power converter device as well. See to it that it is a universal model since plug points vary from Europe. No one wants to be stuck with a phone or camera that cannot be charged.

Have a place to stay

Your accommodations for the trip need to be planned in advance. If you want to travel on the cheap, you can check out universities all over the continent which lets visitors stay and will charge fees that are lower compared to prices seen in hotels. You can also look for sites that offer discounted deals on accommodations.

If you are booking for accommodations, remember to look for deals that come with complimentary breakfasts or dinners. This will help you reduce expenses for the Euro trip.

Take health precautions

While traveling, it is always wise to drink only bottled or mineral water. This will reduce your chances of acquiring diseases while on the go. Take with you indispensable medicines since some medications will not be accessible in the majority of countries or will require a prescription. Furthermore, it will also help if you undergo some vaccinations for certain diseases.

Other Essentials

Make sure to bring with you an umbrella, a small flashlight and a handy dictionary of the country’s language. If you have a smartphone, you can avail of apps that focus on languages. This will make traveling throughout every Euro destination less wearisome on your part. Also, check out the traffic rules of countries you plan to visit since the rules differ with each country.

Traveling in Barcelona, Spain!

When people think about travelling to Europe, there are a few countries and cities that instantly come to mind. They are the ones always gracing the big screen for the top places characters tend to travel. London in Great Britain; Paris in France; Rome in Italy… many people can even visualize the biggest tourist attractions located in those places. There are no fences in between cities! But what other cities should be part of this list of must travel-to places? Europe is a small continent with many countries and cities of interest, so don’t be afraid to stray a bit from the most typical places to travel to and check out this one city in particular for a guaranteed good travel experience.


Barcelona in Spain is a top tourist attraction for many people travelling to this beautiful country, and it should be a top point to head out to when you are planning your trip in Europe. Barcelona is thought of as a city of romance—with its beautiful music, culture, and language, how could you not be serenaded by all that Barcelona has to offer? It is also one of those fascinating cities that manages to have a healthy mix of historical sites and architecture combined with places of modern interest. Everywhere one walks one can see the beauty of the leftover eras in the design of structure of the surrounding buildings. However, if you’ve had your fill of sightseeing for the day and want to have a more modern nightlife experience, there are many ways and places to do that.

Barcelona is home to some of the most exciting places of nightlife that one can travel to. Like other metropolitan hubs of activity, Barcelona is also known as a city that never goes to sleep and where the party continues all night long. Clubbing in the city and on the beachside is a wild experience in this city, as these clubs tend to be open till the wee hours of the morning and do not even become busy until 1am or 2am. There are also many opportunities to get in free, have a reduced entry rate, or get a special deal on drinks if you go at certain times, certain days, or with specific flyers that may be handed out or found around the city.


If the clubbing nightlife is not your scene, or you traveled to Barcelona with your family, there are still many activities available to be enjoyed besides sightseeing. Children and adults alike can find day-long fun at the Tibidabo amusement park (better for small children), the PortAventura theme park, or if getting wet is not an issue, the Illa Fantasia water park. And if those are too exciting for your travels, there are many great walking and natural parks and beaches that can be enjoyed.


The next time you are planning your trip to Europe, keep in mind that Barcelona is a truly exciting and beautiful city to travel to. All that is to offer here is worth the visit for the lifelong memories. I have been to Barcelona 100 times and I would love to answer all of your questions.

A few of my favorite places to travel in Europe

When a person decides to travel someplace, they usually know exactly where they’re going to visit. And unless that person is a backpacking world traveler, they usually don’t say, “I’m going to travel the entire United States (or Asia, South America, etc).” However, when it comes to travelling to Europe, things are a little bit different. Europe is a smaller continent with a lot of access to high-speed transit. Because of this, it is not impossible for someone to say that they want to travel across Europe—actually, that is a very common feat for tourists. Many travel packages to Europe and even school field trips to Europe have a widespread itinerary of sights to see and places to travel spanning multiple countries. It is harder to do that someplace like the United Sates because of the lack of intercontinental high-speed travel. So, if you are making the decision to head out to Europe, what places should you mark on your map? Let’s find out.

Top travel spots in Europe

Rome, Italy is one of the most well known cities in the world. It is a city of extensive history and mythological significance and is the capital of Italy itself. Whether one is interested in historical landmarks or amazing local cuisine, both can be found in abundance in this city. If you decide to travel to Rome, make sure to check out the Pantheon and its architectural wonder or the Colosseum for the historical excellence of the biggest amphitheater ever created. Rome is also a city known for providing the best of the best Italian cuisine, so if historical sightseeing isn’t your thing on your travels, there is still much to experience.

London, located in the United Kingdom’s Great Britain, is another hotspot to travel to when in Europe. Home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, this city should be among the top places to visit when deciding on places to go in Europe. With sights such as the clock tower at the Palace of Westminster or the famous Buckingham Palace and its well-known guards, there is much to see in this city that blends old and new.


Of course, what list of European places to visit would be complete without mentioning Paris, France? If you are planning to travel to Europe, make sure to add the City of Lights to your list. Besides its most well known structure, the Eiffel Tower, Paris is also one of the biggest homes of fashion and art and excellent food. The nightlife is also applauded, as the whole city sparkles with activity making the night seem as if it never needs to end.


The list of places to travel to here does not cover all of the exciting, beautiful, and historic cities one should visit when touring through Europe. Every country has its share of historical landmarks, local cuisine, and tourist must-see attractions. There is no end to the Europe experience as soon as you step foot on the continent. Travel there and see for yourself! Questions before embarking on your European vacation? Visit my contact form here!

Traveling Europe | A guide to one of the most Beautiful Countries to Travel

Why You Are Going to LOVE Traveling Europe!

I am an American and I have lived in the USA for my ENTIRE life. I am VERY proud to be an American, but I also love to adventure and explore new things. Exploration and adventure are so vital to my happiness. My favorite place by far to explore is all of the countries in Europe.  Life is so different than in America, with public transit being so much nicer and people a little friendlier. Europe is so beautiful to travel all times of the year that you can literally take an adventure there ANY time and there will be no negative to your vacation. Many places, there are times of the year that are better to go, but no with Europe, nope! Just grab a plane ticket from one of the major airlines (or if your like me, try to get your fiend to take you in their private plane) pack a small bag, and get your little but over there and enjoy your self!
