Care For a Cup of Tea in London, England

London is an amazing place to start. Taking in the scenery as well as blending in with the locals provides you with a satisfying feeling that you belong. Allow yourself to be taken in by the slower pace of the city as you enjoy watching the guards at the Buckingham Palace or the plays at the Globe Theatre. Then, enjoy tea with whatever it is served with. Even in its simpler form, you will not regret spending a day or two in London.

Gamble in Monaco

Check Out the Gondolas in Venice, Italy

Ah, nothing like a ride in the city on water. Take your loved ones on a romantic gondola boat ride that’s fully equipped with a French man and their signature black and white striped shirt and hat.

Let him take you to a romantic and magical place, sing you a song or let him tag along some of his friends who can play the violin for you. And if you’re with the love of your life, this place is an excellent spot for that much-awaited proposal because the view, setting and the ride just is too perfect to pass off.

Try out Opera’s in Vienna, Austria

Not everybody likes operas. However, before you could even say you like it or not, you should definitely try the experience. Close your eyes to classical music from the 1700s up to now.

Although Opera belongs to Europe, none can compare to the beauty, devotion, and respect Vienna has for the trade. Here, you can experience the raw talent of artists as you enjoy and appreciate it the way the audience from the past do.
