Default Has anyone been to Europe?

If so, what places did you visit while you were there? Also, what was the flight like?

I have never really traveled anywhere significant, but I am going to Europe for the first time in the Fall, and was just wondering what to expect. I'll be visiting London, Paris and Rome. I'm really looking forward to it!

Yeah, I've been to Europe. The flight went well. I've been to London and Paris, and I hope one day to go to Rome.

I really have nothing to say other than it is great. Everyone should vacation in Europe, at least once.

You'll love it! It's amazing. The flight shouldn't be that bad, as it should be dark and you will be able to sleep. Try to get some sleep at least to ward off jet lag. I've traveled to most European countries, but hitting the The 3 Majors of London, Paris and Rome on your first trip over will be a great introduction to the continent. Fall is a wonderful time of the year to visit, as well. Once you return home, you will already start planning your next trip!

I've been to Europe twice. The first trip was my school's Senior Trip, the second trip was to attend the American Coaster Enthusiast's first International Convention. On both cases the Jet Lag hit me like a ton of bricks! The best way to deal with it is to "Tough it out" for the day and don't go to bed until it gets dark. In both cases somr people in my group didn't heed the warning, and their second day was just as bad as their first. In both there were others who didn't have problems with jet lag at all, but that's the way things went for me.

On the return trip home I had no problem with jet lag, so figure that!

I've also been to South America four times, no problem with jet lag there, but if only they made the seats in coach recline just two inches further!

Never been to Europe. I've always wanted to go to England. But I'm afraid to fly. So I'll just travel the US and Canada. I love Canada! We have camped there and I've been to Toronto many times. I would someday like to go to Montreal.

Thanks so much for the tip! I will definitely try to sleep on the flight. Wow, lucky that you've been able to travel so much throughout Europe. I'm sure this vacation will just want to make me plan another!

Thanks for the advice! I'll have to try to tough it out for the first day so that everything goes smoothly.

Since I'm also from Michigan, the majority of my vacations have been to the UP. I was in Georgia and Alabama as a young child, and Florida as a teen, but not too much other than that.

Never. And, despite having wanted to go for 25 years, I'm not likely to do so.

I just wanted to share that I absolutely loved Europe. It was amazing, and an experience like that is really life changing. I did all of the main tourist things that you can do in the cities, and a lot of things in between.

Everything from seeing Lindsay Lohan in a play (was 15 feet away from the stage--she was great!) to seeing the Pope to aimlessly wandering Paris at all hours of the night and sitting on a bench in front of the Notre Dame with a full moon and not many people around.

It was a trip I'll never forget, and I completely recommend it to anyone who has the chance to go. You were completely correct 80sTrivia, I am so ready to start planning the next trip!

Ok, so I absolutely did not think it would be this soon! But I just booked a trip to Barcelona leaving Christmas night and returning New Year's Day. I'm so excited!

Never been there, but it's on my Bucket List!

Here's the cities I'd go to...

Liverpool, United Kingdom (I'm a die-hard Beatles fan)!
Paris, France (I'll be sure to have traveler's cheques with me).
Germany (Only where my cousin lives since he's German).
All of Italy (And I'd like to try a REAL pizza)!

If you are traveling from Germany to Italy you'll want to spend AT LEAST one week in Switzerland, the Alps are absolutely BREATHTAKING!!!
