why take your kids to Europe? Education!
Why Europe with kids? As the base of Western Culture, Europe is a huge living museum of history, so perfect for educational travel for families with endless lessons about international travel and multilingual/multiculturalism.

Not to mention the amazing food, sights, beauty and fun factor!

Europe is dense, with many countries, speaking many languages, and many cultures, in a fairly compact area ( compared to North America), so unparalleled opportunity to understand the past and learn.

One can visit prehistoric art in caves,inspect Roman ruins, see wild horses and medieval fortresses, hear gypsy guitar at Moorish palace,  and explore an ancient working wind mill, all within a few days!

We think the best way to see Europe is camping! One of our best decisions on our 8 year open ended family trip around the world has been using an RV for Europe. Vacation rentals and trains in Europe can work too while staying on a tight budget like we do.
