According to St. Augustine, “The world is a book and those who do not travel, read only one page.” Traveling is essential to give yourself a break, a memorable experience and new perspective towards life.
Mostly, people head towards Europe when they think of traveling as it consists of number of exotic destinations we all yearn to visit at least once in our entire lifetime. The popular destinations include Greece, Germany, Italy, Spain, England, France, Switzerland and many more.
However, have you ever thought why European Travel is so easy and why people end up choosing European destinations most of the time?
Here are the following reasons why European Travel is considered so easy:
It is easier for majority of people in the world to travel through Europe because travelers and the citizens of Europe can communicate easily using the English language. Although, on the continent there are places such as Spain, France and Italy where comparatively lower percentage of people can speak English fluently but still they are capable of communicating well, knowing English as a second language.
Irish proverb says, “Laughter is brightest where food is best.” Yes, food is a major concern while traveling too. It is not at all difficult to find familiar as well as hygienic food in Europe. People around the world enjoy pizzas and pastas and know what they would love to have when they visit Italy. Similarly, England and other countries provide variety of cuisines and have all types of restaurants that make it easy for the traveler to have the food of their choice gladly.
Europe consists of diverse cultures and traditions within a small geographical area. Tourists get to see variety of exclusive destinations without having to suffer in long-haul flights. Travelers can easily reach the next destination in less time and are able to explore more in just a two-week vacation. Shorter distances also mean lower traveling expense.
One of the main reasons behind why people feel traveling in Europe is easy is because they have top-notch transportation involving high-quality buses, trains, etc. Also, the infrastructure in Europe is out class. This makes traveling in Europe very feasible. Moreover, the tickets of public transportation are very cheap that makes traveling very seamless. In a EuroRail, one can easily travel 4 countries in $155.
#5: Personal Interest
As Jose Marti says, “The force of passion is balanced by the force of interest.” People find traveling in Europe easy because they have their own personal interest and motivation to explore several places. There could be various reasons why people develop personal interest to travel to Europe. For example, many American see Europe as family’s own heritage site as they have had ancestors from Europe.
Another instance includes business meetings because Europe is a trading partner to many countries and is one of the US’s largest trading partners. For business trips, people frequently visit Europe and thus, the place and people are not at all new to them making traveling extremely easy for them. For such people, Europe is their second home.
