Nice-beachEach time I travel to Europe is just as exciting as the last.  There is always somewhere new to visit, a favourite destination to return to and lots and lots of travel tips to learn!  I'm always interested to see if things have changed since previous visits, too.  There are many long standing traditions and habits that are still practised today but sometimes you notice changing trends.  I jotted down some observations from my recent trip which might be useful for you to know when planning your European holiday.

If you’re like me, you’ll find a ‘to do’ list very handy in the weeks leading up to departure and there’s nothing more satisfying than knowing that everything on that list has been ticked off by the time you settle into your seat on the plane.
