Best Taste of Europe in 26 days

European Escapade 11 countries \ 26 days

11 Jun 2013 - 07 Jul 2013 \ I did this tour last summer with some of my girlfriends and we had the best time. It is pretty fast paced, but if you are looking to get a taste of Europe in one month, then this trip is for you! When you go back in the future, you can spend more time in the places that you really love. I recommend this trip for first-time Europe travelers like me :) Check out my blog www.ellafortuna.com to see each place we went to and how much fun we had! :)
