Living in Italy while studying abroad this Spring marks my first time ever in Europe. One of the first things I quickly realized and fell in love with was how easy it is to travel from country to country. In just a week and a half, I managed to visit four new countries in Europe. I was impressed by how simple it was to go from one place to another and found it relatively inexpensive. In just 10 days I saw four entirely different countries and was able to explore completely different cultures with ease.
Flying from Milan to Budapest was simple, cheap, and one of my favorite places I have visited yet. I was able to visit their top attractions such as the Fisherman’s Bastion, St. Stephen’s Basilica, and their famous thermal baths.
Prague, Czech Republic
From Budapest, it was only a short flight to my next destination: Prague. Here I got to explore attractions such as the famous Dancing House, Old Town Square, and the Lennon Wall.
After returning home from Prague, I was able to get on a bus just a day later and travel from Milan, Italy to Nice, France. I got the luxury of exploring their beautiful beaches and views of the city.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
My last trip included a short train ride from Nice, France to the small country of Monaco. Here I discovered more gorgeous views as well as shopping centers and excellent food.
