Huge Misconceptions People Make Before They Travel to Europe

If you’re gearing up for your first trip to Europe, forget these misconceptions!


A lot of people think that just because Europe is a small continent that the weather is the same across the board, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It even varies within each country! For example, the northern parts of Spain never really get that warm in the summer, while Paris can be in the 90s in July but drop down to being in the 50s at night in August.


Whenever you go on a European adventure, it’s tempting to bring a lot of different outfits to give you options. But, if you want to be like real Europeans, bring little clothes that you can re-wear! Europeans are all about efficiency and you’ll see that they can travel for a long while even with small suitcases.


There are some places like Spain where people party at all hours of the night often. However, a lot of places like Dublin, London, Amsterdam, and more, all close their bars and even clubs pretty early. So if you want to have a raging night, check out the opening hours of where you want to go so you’re not shocked when they turn the lights on early!
