Ready to travel to Europe for the trip of a lifetime? Feeling unsure? Not enough money? Our Europe travel guide, Travelling Europe, is the place to begin.

There’s really no reason you shouldn’t be chilling on a Greek island or getting your fill of history at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Although the world’s economy is kind of shot, there’s never been a better time to travel to Europe.

Between March 2006 and September 2008 we did just that: my wife and I spent two and half years travelling Europe, and visited 29 countries. Since February 2007, Linda and I have been running the Indie Travel Podcast and this book is the culmination of all that research and travel.
