My favorite continent, the majority of my international travel experiences have been here. This is in no small part due to the ease of travel - discount airlines, an abundance of hostels, and the Schengen Area (which allows for free travel between countries) are just a few reasons why Europe is a traveler's paradise. The lack of travel barriers ensures that you can get from Scottish lochs to Greek isles and everywhere in-between without difficulty. Considering the history, culture, and, most importantly, food that Europe has to offer, be sure to take full advantage of this easy access!
