    • Thanks! I’ve been here for a little over 4 years, living in 4 different countries, and have had the luck to travel all over the continent…but there are still many places, even countries, that I’ve never seen!! Glad there are others like me who are so passionate about travelling in Europe!!

      • I have lived in Europe all my life and haven’t seen as many places! You’ve inspired me that I need to get out and see more of what is closer to home 🙂

        • Great!! But isn’t that always the case? We never visit our own ‘backyards’…that is, until we have a friend come to visit, and then we discover all kinds of new places! I never properly appreciated my home region in America (Washington DC) until I left it… definitely take advantage of the relative proximity and feasibility to travel within Europe (not to mention its incredible diversity!) and discover new places! It’s worth it:)
