Aids for Travel to Europe and City Searches for SeniorsFeb 26th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel
I am hesitant to add yet another site that focuses on hotel bookings in Europe as there are so many; however, this one looks a little exceptional. Have you been searching for budget hotels in Amsterdam, Prague or Berlin or a luxurious resort on the French Riviera? How about a contemporary business hotel in London or Dublin or a charming bed and breakfast in Barcelona or Paris? Whatever type of hotel you are looking for, Eurobookings.com can help you in your search—and “at the lowest possible rate!”
So Much World Hotels and Travel Guides tells us that Europe packs more countries, cultures, cuisines, castles and cathedrals into its landmass than any other continent. For first-time visitors to Europe, the barrage of languages and currencies can be a culture shock. Culture shock is a reality. My wife went through it when we moved to Paris to live for a year with our two small children.
Culture shock isn’t a clinical term or medical condition, it’s simply a common way to describe the confusing and nervous feelings a person may have after leaving a familiar culture to live in a new and different culture. It grows out of the difficulties in assimilating the new culture and environment causing difficulty in knowing what is appropriate and what is not. When you move to a new place, like Paris, you’re bound to face a lot of changes. If you have experienced culture shock, you know that it is very real. This site has world class travel articles and guides written by some of the planet’s best travel writers. Whether you’re a culture vulture, a beer-swiller or an adrenalin junkie, Europe is the ultimate vacation playground.
European Destinations lets you build your own itinerary. In addition you can find and add more itineraries in cities you wish to visit. The site features the Best of Europe with several countries listed. Each country has programs with choices of what you might like to see and visit along with specific itineraries, hotels, cities and dates. As an example, if chose France and a program called Magnificent France, below is what you would receive for $1,297. This would be a very nice combination and about the right amount of time in each city. Ending up in Nice would be ideal. It is a neat city.
