Home to some of the worlds most iconic landmarks and famous capital cities, Western Europe has everything at your fingertips from pristine Mediterranean beaches to ancient monuments, magnificent palaces to centuries old castles, and the rolling hills of Tuscany to world class skiing in the Alps.
When travellers set off to discover the unknown, they often bypass Western Europe, labelling it as passé. They instead head to the confronting bazaars of the Middle East, the ever-present chaos of Asia, or the colours and smiles of Sub-Saharan Africa.
When my friends visit New York City, they want to see it all. They have laundry lists of places to visit, things to do, restaurants to eat and bars to drink at! It’s a frantic schedule even for this New Yorker!
