Ready to head to Europe for the trip of a lifetime? Feeling unsure? Not enough money? Travelling Europe is the place to begin. Research better, travel smarter, spend less.
There’s really no reason you shouldn’t be chilling on a Greek island or getting your fill of history at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. There’s never been a better time to explore the Continent. And with the recent rise in low cost comparison websites it is easier than ever to find the cheapest airline tickets. You can easily go online, book a ticket and then be off in no time at all.
Between March 2006 and September 2008 we did just that: my wife and I spent two and half years travelling Europe, and visited 29 countries during that time — since then, we’ve spent another year or so here. Linda and I have also been running the Indie Travel Podcast and this book is the culmination of all that research and travel.
Written for novice travellers and formatted in a friendly question-and-answer style, Travelling Europe will answer:
- How can I research my trip?
- Can I afford it?
- What are the visa requirements for visiting Europe?
- Can I work in Europe?
- You’ve taught English to fund your travels. Can I?
- Where should I stay?
- How should I get around?
- How can I research transport?
- Should I get a Eurail pass?
- Do you use budget airlines? What should I look out for?
- Should I learn another language? Which ones?
- Can I drink the water?
In addition to all that, specialist sections cover:
- Family travel
- Solo female travel
- Couples’ travel
Helpful appendices give you a quick reference to European Union and Schengen states and walk you through some online technologies to help you learn before you go and stay informed easily while on the road. How about unusual cities to explore or places to go with your kids? It’s all in Travelling Europe.
