I've travelled quite a bit both alone and with groups, but this summer my girlfriend and I are travelling to Europe together. It will be her first time leaving the U.S. and I was wondering if anyone had some tips to offer. Because it has been a while since I have experienced first time travel I am afraid I will miss some obvious aspects of it. Any general travel tips are most welcome.
Hi Sean, a while back someone here asked the question "How and Why did everyone start travelling?". There's fantastic answers that may help you remember the experience of a first-time traveller and why/how it can change your life. Whilst it's not full of tips for your European trip, it's worth a read:
