  • Been to Europe?

    So stuck here in the boringness that in smalltown, usa. I have been dreaming of the large world we live in. It has always been my dream to go to Rome. Which leads me to ask, Have you been to Europe? If so how was it?

    I haven't but I have several friends who have.

    My goal is to go to Paris & London before I die.

      I have and I really want to go back. It's amazing. I have been to England, France, Luxemburg (sp?), Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Switzerland. Belgium and Switzerland were my favorite, but it was all amazing.

            Britain (twice), France and Belgium.

            Britain - food isn't as boring as you'd think

            France - the people are NOT as snotty as we Americans are led to believe. In fact I didn't run into any people like that.

            Belgium - people are very nice, a little reserved, and the best chocolate EVER!

              Totally, everyone was nice and actually quite welcoming. And I think people were the nicest in Belgium. I loved Brussels, so small and quaint
              and quiet. It was a cool place.

              Strangely, parts of Paris reminded me more of L.A. than I would ever have imagined. The traffic was awful!

                Holland and part of Germany. Really friendly people. Beautiful country. Bike accessible everywhere. AmsterDam is a wonderful city! Heerenveen, Arnhem, Oosterbeek(A Bridge To Far fame), Geithorn, Gronigen. I still have alot of family from Amsterdam and the surrounding cities.

                    I've been to England twice (loved the people there), Ireland, France and Antwep, Belgium.

                    Antwerp was gorgeous and fun to walk around, with a cathedral in the center of town. My avatar is the one of the wooden statues inside the Antwerp Cathedral.

                      Meh. England isn't all its cranked up to be. There people there are disgusting, the food made me ill, the beds were made of straw, the men wore tights and the women looked, funnily enough, like men. I couldn't wait to go home.

                        Hahaha, speedway, rotfl!

                        Let's see...

                        Lived in England for a bit, love it (as long as you're not allergic to straw)
                        France is nicer than popular culture will allow you to believe
                        If heaven's not all it's cracked up to be, take me back to Switzerland (Luzern!)
                        Umm... and other cool places, yeah!

                        Quit asking and JUST GO!

                          I've been to England and France. Mainly the London area (and outlying countryside) and to Paris...and Disneyland Paris.

                          Both are great places to visit. I'd go back to London in a heartbeat. I didn't get nearly enough time to see everything I wanted. Harrod's alone, you need a full day or more to discover every neat nook and cranny.

                                I bought a jacket at Harrod's that I kept way past it's prime! Like until the seams were coming apart and the stuffing was coming out!

                                Plus, it was SO ugly! I didn't think so at the time, but looking back I could have gotten something SO much cuter!

                                    I have never had the pleasure. Almost- but always change my plans and end up going somewhere else like South America or the Carribeans (I like hot climates with beaches).
                                    I would like to go to Italy and Germany- and will one day. Almost went to Italy this year- but than I found out I was pregnant and well- there went that- decided to save the money and buy baby things

                                      I went for 6 weeks when I was 18 with a folk dance group. We had a great time staying with host families. We went to Amsterdam and Paris (just for a day each) spend a week in Barcelona, Spain - loved it! Then on to Nice, France and Monaco. Then to Czechoslovakia - it was an eye opening experience (especially since no one spoke English). Poland - hated it. and Germany - which was fun.

                                        I spent 9 years in Germany when I was a kid, my Dad was in the Army. I absolutely loved it there and I'm dying to go back. However, now that I have to pay for it, it's going to be awhile.

                                        We traveled so much while I lived there and got to see many amazing places. They had these bus tours where it was, I think, $40 per person and you'd all meet up after work on Friday night, pack up the bus and head to your destination. You'd sleep overnight on the way there and then go sightseeing on Saturday only to drive back overnight on Saturday. We visited Switzerland and several other places this way. We were there for the fall of the Berlin wall and I still have the piece that I chipped off with my own two hands around here somewhere. We went camping in Chiemsee, where Hitler's hideout up in the mountains was. Got to see the actual attic where Anne Frank and family hid for so long. We went camping in Italy every summer for a week and got to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa and visit the beach. I can't even remember everything that we did but I can't wait until I can one day go back for a few weeks. And I mostly miss the food.
