A few of the best days of our 11 months of European travel were spent at the Fringe Festival, walking aimlessly through Edinburgh’s dreary and magical streets.
Vienna encompasses all that Europe has to offer: If you want to see Turkish influence in Europe, you can go to Nachtmarkt. If you want to see the best museums in Europe, go to the Museum Quarter.

Driving on Austria’s Glossglockner Road reminded us of the quintessential trip to a National Park in the United States where tourists hop into a car and spend the day seeing the sights from the road.
