Take a break and “treat yo self” to a vacation in one of the most expensive countries to spend a month in Europe because you only live once.
Living like a European, sitting at an outdoor cafe, drinking strong coffee and munching on a perfectly flaky croissant is one of my favorite past times. I love traveling anywhere in the world and learning about a new environment and culture. However, Europe holds a special place in my heart. That’s probably because I spent half a year leaving the easy-going life of the Spaniards, in Granada, Spain. Any place where a siesta is still very common and part of the city’s daily routine is the place for me. Also, anywhere where a glass of water is the same price as a glass of wine (you can expect to pay for water at most restaurants in Europe) is my kind of place — let’s face it, we’d all rather drink the wine.
