Reasons To Travel To Europe (and add a splash of Morocco while you’re at it)

October 17, 2017 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Whether you’re hitting Europe for the summer or the winter, there’s plenty to do, see, and ALWAYS plenty to eat! We all know that Europe is home to famous attractions like Big Ben or the Colosseum, but beyond that, there’s a whole new world waiting to be discovered! There is something for everyone in Europe, from partying the night away or relaxing on a serene beach. Though the European summer may be drawing to a close, it’s never too late for you to have your own one of a kind European getaway (or book next year’s in advance)! Here’s OUR top reasons to get yourself to Europe – and while you’re there, jump over to Morocco to check out all it has to offer as well!

FOOD The beautifully homemade pizza and pasta of Italy, fresh salads and allllll the Gyros you can eat in Greece, a famous slow cooked stew in Croatia, from snails and frogs to croissants and delicate pastries in France, Bratwurst and traditional beer in Germany or the Paella in Spain…need we say more…*drooling*

PEOPLE Nothing makes a holiday more memorable than the people you share it with. You can expect the warmest of welcomes and smiling locals that will turn Europe into your home away from home. Plus side; in some of the most romanticised and glamorous cities in the world, you never know who you might meet.

BEACHES Beaches in Europe take things to a new level. Whether a pebble beach, sand beach, or hidden beaches you access through hiking cliffs…there’s a coastal paradise waiting for everyone. Hot tip: get your beach bag packed and don’t bother unpacking it!

PARTIES Ditch the local disco and dance the night away at one of Europe’s many iconic party destinations. Make the most of the summer vibes at Ibiza Beach Club, or get your hips moving at Papaya in Croatia. Each city boogies to a different beat that will surely keep you partygoers entertained.

WEATHER  Summer in Europe has captured our hearts for centuries. Endless and beautiful sunshine lets you get that ultimate sun kissed glow, while you devour your second WEATHER  Summer in Europe has captured our hearts for centuries. Endless and beautiful sunshine lets you get that ultimate sun kissed glow, while you devour your second       gelato of the day. But, if you’re hoping to live out your winter wonderland dream, the Swiss Alps are waiting for you! Experience snowy landscapes, fairy-lit cobbled streets, and of course CHRISTMAS MARKETS!

LIFESTYLE Seriously, we don’t know which European lifestyle is better…there’s the Siestaloving Spaniards, the constant food offerings from family members of Italians, the passionate, affectionate, PDA loving French, the party-loving, schnitzel and bier consuming Germans, or the homely and welcoming English. We know these are all stereotypes, but they’re pretty spot on! The locals in each European country all bring different things to the table, but one thing’s for sure – they’re all as open and welcoming as the next!

CULTURAL + MUSIC FESTIVALS Have the time of your life at one of Europe’s many cultural festivals, like Leeds Mint Festival, Le Loup Vert Festival in France, La Tomatina in Bunol, Spain or head over to Munich to be apart of the famous Oktoberfest! If you’re not into the idea of a rowdy festival, perhaps the Southern Soul Festival, set on a beach in Montenegro, or the Berlin Culture Festival and Carnival in Germany, for a more relaxed setting and a massive cultural hit.

If there’s one thing Europe’s got covered, it’s music festivals. For a non-stop party marathon visit Melt in Germany, Ultra Europe in Croatia or Tomorrowland in Belgium to experience ultimate party and dance vibes. For all you winter babies out there, Secret Solstice in Iceland is calling you. From techno, to bass and drums, reggae or old school rock and roll, there’s something for all you festival fanatics out there.

MOROCCO If you’re feeling adventurous, and looking for a new country to explore while on your Euro trip, head across to Morocco, where you’ll find kind, hospitable people, exotic and vastly different landscapes (as in ‘one side is beach and the other side is desert’, vast). There are beaches to visit, markets to explore, nightlife to revel in and festivals by the plenty! A hop, skip and jump away from Spain, get yourself across to Morocco for yet another cultural experience – and all the fun while you’re at it!
