EUROPE

The old world: Your journey starts here...

…. Called by some just “the old world” – this is a place full of wonders and breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, but see for yourself in our Europe Travel Blog!

Your journey begins here. Let yourself be impressed by the only continent that begins with “E”.
Our Europe Travel Blog takes you to the most beautiful places on this continent.
From the westernmost corners of Portugal, over the icy north of Iceland to the warm southern peaks of the Italian Boot, to the untamed vastness of Eastern Europe.

 

Europe is indeed a very special continent.
In its diversity and variety, it is unique, also in terms of its thousands of years of history.
Be fascinated by our travel impressions and get to know Europe from its most beautiful side.
Because this is exactly what our claim and our motto is – to convey the wonders of the various travel destinations in our Europe Travel Blog.
Have fun browsing
