Introduction to
Europe
Europe presents an irresistible challenge to the budget traveller. A potent
mix of culture, landscape and history on the one hand and a cash-gobbling
monster on the other, sticking to your daily allowance can prove tricky.
But learn to zone out the “Spend! Spend! Spend!” siren song of its myriad
restaurants, bars and shops and you’ll fnd that this compact little continent
is simply the world’s greatest labyrinth. From London’s Royal Parks and
Amsterdam’s canals to Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar and Germany’s Berlin Wall,
just getting tangled up in its sights is a huge draw – you can do the Algarve,
the Alps and the Arctic, all in one trip. There’s time travel here too: with
Stonehenge and Ephesus, cathedrals and castles, châteaux and palaces
(not to mention statement-making modern architecture), Europe’s
man-made structures zoom you through millennia of civilization, a
tumultuous history that scars and bejewels the continent by turns.
With its cultural kaleidoscope shifting not just from one country to the next but between
towns and villages, relatively short distances can mean profound changes – bang for your
backpacking buck, in other words, especially with the average gap-year trip getting shorter.
And you needn’t miss out even in some of the world’s most sophisticated cities, with many
iconic European experiences mercifully light on the pocket: think of aperitivo time in Rome,
blini in Moscow, the freebie wonders at London’s British Museum and bargain lunchtime
concerts in Paris or Dublin. You will have to spend a few bob, of course. Accommodation
and travel are bound to devour a fair chunk of your funds; the glass-half-full response is,
“What do I spend the rest on?”. Start by giving your taste buds the ride of their lives, be it
in a Lyon bouchon, a smoky Turkish ocakbaşi, at a market or on the hoof (see Ideas, p.19).
Don’t be tempted to skip breakfast, either – an oven-fresh croissant or calorie-jammed “full
English” are not to be missed, and all the more important in a
morning-after-the-nightbefore context, especially since Europe lives for the wee hours. Whether it’s Berlin and

London’s hipster dives, famenco in Seville, Budapest’s ruin bars or craft beer and organic
wines in Bologna, there are countless reasons to stay up till sunrise. For fun en masse, check
out the continent’s festivals (see Ideas, p.16) – both traditional and modern – and the
outdoor activities that animate its wide-open spaces (see Ideas, p.21), from horseriding in
Bulgaria’s Rila Mountains to surfng on Portugal’s gnarled Alentejo coast. One advantage of
budget travel is that it makes splurging all the sweeter – for a little fashpacking guidance,
keep an eye out for our Treat Yourself tips throughout the Guide.
With just a few exceptions (see p.41), red tape won’t be an issue thanks to Europe’s
unique “open borders” policy – you can travel hassle-free between countries that were once
ferce enemies. To bolster your funds, consider working (see p.39), which can be a great
way to meet people, immerse yourself in a country’s day-to-day life and improve your
language skills. But a word of caution – while you’ll come across sleepy corners where
things seem unchanged since some distant “Once upon a time” era, there’s an atmosphere
of unrest in others. Te Eurozone fnancial crisis is rippling across the continent, having
already destabilized governments from Ireland and Greece to Portugal and Slovenia, while
2016 saw Britain opt out of EU membership in the groundbreaking Brexit referendum.
Recent terrorist attacks in France and Germany may make you wary, but remember that
they’re infrequent occurrences. When planning your trip and before you set of, keep an eye
on the news and scour Twitter, which is also invaluable for up-to-the-minute reviews of
new openings and of-the-beaten-track recommendations. Te disafected mood does have
one upside: with its citizens so politically engaged, this is one of the most interesting times
to travel in Europe for decades, and you’re bound to have conversations and encounters
that defne your memories, whichever road you take.
