Hot Tips for Planning an Extended Trip to Europe

If you're going to choose the best continent for overseas travel, Europe is probably it. It may not be the largest, but that gives it an advantage. You can see so many different countries within a relatively small space. Rail travel is excellent, and it's just as easy to drive or fly to wherever you want to go. Plus, the Schengen Agreement makes it simple to enter and exit different places without a complicated border check. If you're thinking about a trip around Europe, here are some recommendations for planning.


Set a Budget
You might not like it, but money makes the world go around. The first thing you'll need to consider is how much you have to spend, and how you're going to spend it. You might not get as much for your money as you would have twenty or thirty years ago. But if you choose the right places and find ways to save, you can make your cash go further. As a general rule, countries in Eastern Europe are cheaper. And they're becoming more popular as tourist destinations. When you create your budget, you'll need to think about travel, food, accommodation, and activities.

Create an Itinerary
You'll need to decide where you're going and what you're going to do. Once you have a rough budget, you can make a plan for which countries and cities you want to visit. Choose whether you wish to take the train, hire a car or fly between destinations. You could use a combination of all three, if you want. If you want to travel by rail, look at getting a Eurail ticket. You can create a rigid itinerary with everything planned out. Or you can be a little looser and leave some decisions for when you arrive.


Sort Out Your Passport and Visa
You won't get far if you haven't made sure you can enter your first destination and continue from there. Firstly, you'll need to obtain a new passport, if you don't already have one. If you do have one, but it will expire within the next six months, you should renew it. When your passport is in order, you should look into whether you need a visa. A Schengen visa gives you access to 26 countries in Europe. However, countries such as the UK and Croatia that are not part of the Schengen Agreement have different entry requirements.


Book Accommodation and Travel
When you have a solid itinerary, you can start locking it in by making some bookings. You don't have to book accommodation for your whole trip. However, it's recommended to have somewhere to stay for at least the first few nights. Plan your travel in advance too, whether that means buying train tickets or downloading maps. You might want to book some activities in advance too, or perhaps you want to leave them for when you arrive.

Planning an extended trip to Europe can take a while, but it's worth the effort. In just a few weeks, you could see a good portion of the continent.

Natural Fixes For Problem Skin

Confidence. It’s a word that nearly every woman uses to describe anyone but herself. To be confident, you have to be secure within yourself. You have to believe in yourself. When you’re at work or with your friends, it’s likely that you feel envious of those who come across as confident and together, when actually most people are totally faking it and just as insecure and worrisome as you are. But, what makes someone confident? Is it the clothes that they wear? Is it the security of their bank account? Is it a sheer rejection of anything that resembles conformity, so that they can be happy with exactly who they are? It’s likely a huge mix of all of those things. It’s often far easier to focus on flaws than it is to focus on what makes you beautiful, which is why confidence is such an issue among women.
