People always dream on going to Europe, at least the mayoralty of the us. Since Europe is such a famous place that has a rich history and historical destinations, its a big attraction for tourism. Europe is not such a big country, so when you go there for vacations you can visit several places at once. Of course not everything goes smoothly in Europe, because there's always the language issue and the different cultures and food that you have to get used to when you go there, but you can always find some kind of food you like and enjoy. The eastern block, which was closed for a long time, now is open for tourist which is a great place to go. When you have the opportunity make sure you go to Copenhagen, Barcelona, and London because does are in my opinion the most tourist-friendly places. In Europe there is 36 countries, and even if Europe is smaller then the USA it has double the population with about 580 million people, that's pretty impressive. Many first time travelers don't really know what to expect when going to Europe, but I really think you are going to have a great time, just make sure you are prepared with all your papers, have a good camera, travel guide and of course some family members, so you can have a blast.
