Europe

From the allure of the Mediterranean coast to the green pastures of Ireland, Europe seems to be an endless source of natural beauty. Starting with one of the most iconic landmarks on earth, the Eiffel Tower attracts just under 7 million guests to the capital of France each year. Moving east, the Berlin Wall denotes freedom, democracy, and the end to ideological barriers preventing societal advancement. Further south, the original Pizza Napoletana and salty, crumbly Parmigiano- Reggiano are both worth the calories. The cliff-lined coasts of Croatia and the mystic islands of Greece lure travelers year-round to bask in the sun and forget about their troubles. Experiencing every awe-inspiring corner of Europe may take a lifetime, but it is all well worth the trip.
