Europe’s Cheapest Cities To Visit

Cheap European Cities
Palace of Parliament- Bucharest, Romania

It seems like I keep reading about how now is the time to go to Europe. This is mainly due to the Euro falling close to a 1:1 exchange rage with the US dollar.

According to an article from The Guardian, “the euro has lost 35% of its value since last May“. It also fell “below $1.06 for the first time since April 2003” on Wednesday.

While the dollar is catching up to the euro, some countries and cities must still offer a better deal than others.

Smarter Travel took a look at Europe’s Cheapest Cities This year. Continue reading Europe’s Cheapest Cities To Visit

10 Most Family Friendly Cities In Europe

When we started traveling with Lucas, he was 11 weeks old. At the time, finding kid-friendly activities was (obviously) not a priority.  To ease back into traveling, we headed to Barbados figuring a Caribbean island would be simpler than running around and doing tons of sightseeing. It turned out that we did find quite a bit to do during the trip. We rented a car and drove all over the island even checking out the loud and busy Friday night Oistins Fish Fry.

Since then Lucas has been on quite a few trips. Here is a recap of his first 2 years of traveling. We’ve been on 3 trips to Europe since Lucas has turned 2 including our current trip to  Milan & Malta.

In a leaked phone call, the top U.S. Diplomat to Europe allegedly can be heard saying “Fuck the EU”.

Victoria Nuland is the Assistant Secretary for European Affairs. In the leaked call, (according to CNN) voices closely resembling those of Assistant Secretary Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt discuss a plan to broker a deal between the Ukrainian government and the opposition.

At one point the woman, who sounds like Nuland, can be heard saying “f**k the EU.”
