Because, who doesn’t have Europe on their bucket list?
Take it slowly
If you have the time to see Europe from a different perspective just take it slowly and travel by bike or train. Travelling by bike is not only good for your budget but your health also. Many European cities such as Amsterdam and London have bikes readily available for tourists to cycle their way around the streets. If you’re able to plan your Europe trip well in advance you can also save a bundle by booking cross country train trips ahead of time. Check out Rail Europe for prices and train routes. You could even consider taking the night train you’ll save even further and wont need to worry about wasting and precious daylight hours on travelling from city to city. National Rail is a great app that you can download with train timings and live updates for travel around the U.K.
