To date we’ve been to England, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Italy, Vatican City, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Poland. And if you think traveling to Europe is all the same, you obviously haven’t seen much of it. A city in Poland is nothing like a coastal village in Spain. If you don’t believe me, your loss.
Why travel? Rick Steves describes it as ‘accelerated living’ – and I agree. You experience more in a week of travel than in a year at home. Not a fact, and yes, an approximation, but you get the idea. It’s also an invaluable education in geography, language, history, culture, food, and human nature. So I guess if you don’t value living life, intense experience, or an education about the world and humanity – then don’t travel abroad. Or I guess there’s always traveling to get drunk and tanned.
