The Old Continent may be thousands of years old and it may be the centre of Western civilization, but the truth is that not many of the people (including those who travel a lot) know exactly what it is that makes Europe so wonderful, so special and so rich from so many points of view.
Regardless of how you choose to travel to Europe, be it in one of the magical European river cruises or backpacking through it, this continent and every single country in it will be an adventure. You may not have to trek your way up to the famous capital cities and there may be no actual treasure hunt, but this will be an adventure that will start from the notions you have of Europe and will end deep into the rich culture that has built the entire Western world.
One Country at a Time
Starting from Great Britain and going deep into the former USSR countries and starting from Finland and Island and going deep into Greece and Cyprus, every single country in Europe had its own say at its own time. Every single one of these countries is a cultural adventure that leaves you marked for life.
Beauty will be everywhere you turn your head and although it may have taken different shapes in different parts of Europe, it will still be actual beauty at its utmost. Grace, love and a deep sense of history will also surround you and all your being, for Europe is old not because it is thousands of years old, but because history has been tumultuous around here ever since its very beginnings and this has left important marks behind.
Discovering Europe, one country at a time, can be an amazing opportunity to go back to the roots of the culture in which we are all planted, in the end. Discovering Europe is a journey of discovering not only geography, countries, borders, anthems, beliefs, religion and arts, but also a journey of self-discovery, in the end.
The Uniqueness of Europe
Europe is centred on three sturdy pillars: the Greek democracy, the Roman law and the Judeo-Christian religion. From East to West and from South to North, you will see that wherever you set your foot upon. The common nominators for this amazing culture are everywhere and they are more than noticeable.
Yet, at the same time, every single patch on the European map is different. Every single country comes in another colour, texture, fragrance, aroma and taste. Every single country in Europe is diverse, unique and brilliant in its own way – even those countries many of the people in the world have barely heard of. This blend of steadiness, common beliefs and uniqueness at the same time makes Europe to be one of the most special places on Earth – a place worth adventuring into over and over again.
