Why I am Not Scared to Travel to Europe for a Month

Friday I am going to Europe for a month and I am not scared to travel to Europe. I’ll be traveling around the continent, doing two separate road trips and will likely pass through 10-15 countries.

In fact, I just got back from a cruise in New Zealand stopping in ports like Dunedin, Cape Kidnappers, Picton, Tauranga plus Hobbiton, and Auckland.

Organized Tours Make Your Life Easier
