Pigeons eating off the top of your head. I’d say that was unexpected! And it is the unexpected that enlivens any trip through Europe. On our tours we actually seek out the unexpected. Sure, we see all of the wonderful things that you must see on a tour of Europe, and we love them and are thrilled by them. But we also seek out those “moments” that give a spark to travel that makes it all so memorable.
Take the time to admire the street performs that are everywhere in Europe. Some are seriously legit, like this guy in Paris.
Don’t be afraid to try new things. Interlaken was filled with the foul smell of this cheese, but on a dare we tried it. Surprise! It was absolutely delicious! Honest!
Chat it up with the locals. You’ll learn a lot about the people and places that you would not learn otherwise.
So seek out and enjoy the unexpected. Don’t get caught in the typical tourist trap of only seeing the major sights. Get out, get looking, have fun!
