Traveling Europe is what dreams are made of and in my personal opinion Europe is one of the most diverse continents to explore.
Did you know that Europe has a total of 44 countries? And that the Vatican is the smallest country in the world?
Europe has something for everyone! Wether you want to go back packing, go on your first solo adventure, go full on luxury or you love being outdoors. You can do all of these things in Europe and traveling between countries is super easy if you rent a car and with the help of public transportation.
Europe is a continent that breathes history and culture. One day you’re wandering through the cobble stoned streets of Paris, admiring the beauty of the city of love. And the next day you could be hiking the highest mountains in the Dolomites!
And don’t even get me started on the food diversity in every single country! Indulge in the most delicious gelato and pizza in Italy or be amazed by all of the different beers that we have in Belgium!
Each country has it’s own language and unique culture and within the timespan of 24 hours you can actually visit 3 different ones! You’ll be amazed by the fast pace of changing landscapes and how much diversity every single country has to offer!
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT
Well let’s just say that pretty much depends on where you want to go and what you want to do!
If you love hiking and being outdoors then you want to be in Europe from May until halfway October. This is when the hiking trails become snow free again and when most cable cars start operating for the Summer season.
The Summer months July and August are the busiest cause people from all over the world then flock to Europe. If you’re only option is to visit within these months make sure to book your flights and accommodation well from before cause prices tend to skyrocket!
For a city trip I suggest the months March to May and September to November to avoid the bigger crowds and to score a good pricing deal.
If you want to experience the magic of the European Christmas markets then December is your go to month! Drink mulled wine on the German Christmas markets or immerse yourself in the fairy tale Christmas world of Colmar!
