Europe can be better than sitting inside of a giant clog in Amsterdam and posing armless alongside Venus de Milo. That’s not to say you shouldn’t be seeing the damn Eiffel Tower, but don’t you want more from your Eurotrip?
You can get the very best out of Barcelona when you explore it like a Gaudí groupie. Dust off your high school Spanish at a language school in Madrid or WWOOF in the Swiss countryside. Explore an abandoned NSA spy tower in Berlin and wander just about any European city for some of the coolest street art you’ve ever seen. Experience the journey on an epic overland adventure or dart through Europe with a Eurail Pass. And if you’re looking for some of the many alternative experiences Europe has to offer, you’ll find some of that too.
