Life In Europe
Life in Europe is slow, leisurely even to the point
of non-chalent. The many small, artistic and funky
cafes that litter along the streets all over Europe
seem oblivious to the happenings of the rest of the
world. The detachment from the real world makes Europe
an ideal place for a getaway. Save for a few bustling
cities in Europe, one can generally enjoy a slower
pace of life in Europe.
Europeans are extremely proud of their culture and
language. Be careful not to make any offending remarks
about their culture as things might turn ugly from
there. Instead, soak in the cultural hub of the world
and try to learn and experience everything about their
rich history, marvellous art, colorful language, uplifting
music, well-preserved artifacts and impressive monuments.
Football or soccer is the national sport in Europe.
It is very much part of everybody lives. During periods
of major tournaments such as World Cup and European
Cup, everybody will breathe and eat football in a
way pretty reminiscent to how Americans treat basketball
but only ten times more. Visit the famous football
clubs and stadiums in Europe to find out more about
For the typical foreign tourist, take note of the
costs involved for traveling in Europe. Cost of living
is generally quite expensive with an average meal
avaliable around 5 Euros to 25 Euros and three star
hotel rooms in city locations going at 100 Euros.
Short distance public transport on trains, trams or
buses are readily avaliable costing less than 2 Euros.
For long distance traveling, bus and train rides generally
provide more value with prices 30 Euros and above.
When booked early, budget carriers are cheaply avaliable
from 20 Euros onwards (including taxes). The most
exorbitant form of transport for long distance traveling
is often the taxi which is seen as a premium service
in most cities. Expect to pay up to three to ten times
more as compared to public transport when taking the
taxi. To save money, book your transportation and
accomodation online as early as possible.
