Europe - Adventure of a Lifetime
Defined Tag: Adventure in Europe.
Adventure and intrigue are what pop into my mind when I feel I want to Go on vacation to Europe. I imagine ancient lands where great rulers and great minds such as DaVinci walked before me. My mind turns to beautiful landscapes and breathtaking views of waterways and mountainsides. Sometimes I let my imagination run wild and imagine finding places few people know about and enjoy being the only one there. Beautiful beaches with beautiful people enjoying the warm hot sun beating down on bronzed bodies. That's what this great continent brings to my mind when I consider it's majestic greatness.
If new discoveries spark your interest then backpacking through the mountains of the region may enliven your senses. Not to mention it will give a sense of accomplishment to achieve such a physical feat. The idea in this kind of adventure is to travel lightly. When you go on vacation to Europe with the intention of traveling the mountainside the less heavy the backpack the better. Only take what you will absolutely need for travel: a few hygiene products, light and easy to carry clothing, some rations, a travel guide, and some cash. Some items can be picked up in various towns and remember you are roughing it a bit. There's no need for fancy clothing and a case load of make-up products. You are being the world traveler you always dreamed of, so travel easy.
Some go on vacation to Europe just for the sheer enjoyment of meeting new people. It's nice if you're friendly enough to meet a family in each country that may adopt you into their home for a period of time. This can give you alot of insight into their way of life and customs. You may get to sample food that is made from recipes that is hundreds of years old and may be very different than what's offered in local cafes and restaurants. Not to mention many of the locals are hospitable and will treat you like you are one of them. As long as you are friendly, make an attempt to speak the language, and are humble and not "American arrogant" then you will enjoy this adventure of a lifetime.
