Episode #44: One continent, so many countries

I talk a lot about the benefits of living in Europe because after leaving the United States 4 years ago I haven’t yet thought about moving back.

One of my favorite benefits is the diversity on the European continents and easy access to transport to travel from one country to another in short time. I think it is safe to say that most people that come to Europe enjoy this, which is why Americans plan two month Euro trips for example – travelling is relatively easy when the countries are close together, and every city has a surplus of accommodation ranging from super cheap to super expensive so with a little bit of effort you can always find what you are looking for.

Matija and Kaitlyn talk about some of their travelling experiences throughout Europe. All three of us have done a lot of travelling through soccer for games, tournaments, to visit family and also travelling with friends, boyfriends, girlfriends and so on.

One big thing that we, and most people, share in common is the love for travel: seeing new countries, hearing new languages, learning new words, being introduced to other cultures, and trying new foods (which is my favorite part and Kaitlyn’s as well I’m sure).

I don’t really know a person who doesn’t love to travel at least a little bit – If not by plane, then by car, bus or train. Travelling can always unite people because even though we all go to different places, in conversation with other travelers there is always common ground and similarities whether it is the length of travel to get to a destination or the location itself which can be talked about.
