Europe Travel Guides

Coming from the UK I am a sucker for cobbled streets, historic tales, crisp winter mornings and cities and countryside full of charm. Love the same stuff? You are in the right place!

Sure, the likes of Paris, Rome and London steal the city break headlines but why not throw in a side trip to Serbia, discover the cute and quaint country of Slovenia or head to the magic world of Iceland. Every day this continent steals my heart, let me show you why…

Safe travels,
Dan
