Until I went on our gap year in 2017/18 I had not travelled to Europe very much. We had touched briefly on the UK and Greece previously, but that was all. Our rough plan for our gap year before we left included about 2.5 months in Europe. By the time we came home, we had spent 7.5 months exploring the continent. Europe is just so diverse and interesting, and there is so much packed into it and we were captivated. There is still so much to see though, and I will be visiting a few more new countries and some we’ve already been to in early 2019, so look out for new posts then.
