Welcome to European Travelista. . .

. . . the blog for you if you love traveling to Europe! I am excited to launch this site with this first blog to tell you a little about me and what will be coming.

I was bitten by the travel bug after my first trip to Europe way back in 1982. I was 23 and set off on my own for my first ever adventure outside the USA. My mother must have been dying inside but to her credit she never discouraged me or told me how afraid for me she must have been.

Enjoying a beer in Englisher Garten's Munich

During my 3 weeks touring Germany, Paris and England I learned that I could get around in a country where English is not the language and I do not speak theirs! I ate, rode trains, got to the airport, didn’t get lost, could live within my means, learned to pack light and encountered some amazing people along the way. I also learned that the world, even back then, was a very small place as I ran into people who knew people I knew while waiting for the video to start at Dachau! This was my first trip and they have not stopped since.

This trip also introduced me to Europe and the love affair has stayed with me to do this day. Plain and simple, I love Europe! I am captivated by everything there is: history, art, architecture, people, the transportation, food, traditions, nature, art, culture, drinks and the stunning scenery. Everything is an education! I love talking about it, planning trips to visit and learning about new areas, cities, villages, sights to see, and more. I get an excited feeling all over when I see pictures of Europe. Maybe I’m a European at heart. . .
My goal for this blog is to share with you my experiences and learn about yours. I realize we all have a different way to travel but I believe we all share the same goal. That is to travel and we can learn from others even if we want to camp or prefer staying in luxury hotels. I will share my tips, knowledge of hotels, adventures I’ve taken, interesting facts I learn and adventures I want to take. I hope you will share your comments with us all. There is so much to learn and if everyone contributes we will all be richer for it.

Thank you again for stopping by. I hope to see you often as this journey takes off . . .
