Some of the most visited countries in the world lie within the continent of Europe, which is bordered by Africa, Asia and two oceans – the Atlantic and the Arctic. Europe may be the world’s second-smallest continent by land surface area, but there is no lack of diversity in the countries that are part of it. Visitors are generally amazed at just how quickly a separation of a few miles can transform one culture into another. Languages change and the taste buds are exposed to a whole new range of gastronomic delights.
Europe packs quite a punch on all fronts, be it the spectacular natural scenery of the Alps, the romance of Venice, the lure of Scotland’s glens and lochs or the beaches of the Mediterranean, there’s no dearth of stunning scenery to leave you ‘starry-eyed.’ For those interested in history and the arts, the attractions are mind-boggling. One can literally step back in time in the numerous medieval cities like York, Siena, Saint Paul de Vence or Prague or get lost in the Moorish palaces of Andalucia or the imperial palaces of St. Petersburg. If spirituality is what you seek, the grand monasteries and spectacular churches of Europe are sure to satiate the restless heart.
