All about Travel Planning! Below are bite-sized travel tips by destination, as well as practical travel recommendations, and fabulous destination ideas. 🍀
Happy Travel Planning!
Our Travel Tips posts are small bites of information for destinations around Europe, which we hope are helpful for anyone planning a trip. Each post includes key information about the currency, language, and more. We include our recommendations and what we found to be highlights or hidden gems on our trips. We note hotels and restaurants that we’ve enjoyed, and yes, usually an Irish Pub that we’ve especially liked as well.

Travel should be a wonderful, fun adventure once you reach your destination. It’s important to remember not to over-schedule, and leave time to just enjoy an area. Strolling the quaint streets, shopping for unique treasures, and sitting down for a coffee or a beer at a café table is part of European life. So remember to slow down and enjoy yourself.
For a fascinating show almost anywhere, listen to the café servers slide from one language to another as they move about their tables. Many Europeans who work in tourism speak the Big 5 Languages of English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German well, and also know a bit of several more. We try to at least learn Please and Thank You in the language of the country we’re visiting.
Planning for a trip anywhere in Europe can be overwhelming, between not knowing exactly what to expect once you arrive, and what you may have forgotten. But of course looking forward to a trip is half the fun. We love to travel, and hope to help others travel with ease with these tips.
