Europe – home to history, fairy tale castles, beautiful landscapes, ancient buildings and interesting cities, as well as the occasional beautiful beach! There are 44 countries in Europe and no other continent gives you the ease of exploring so many countries in a (relatively) small area. My home, and most extensively travelled region of the world.
This section of the blog focuses on Eastern Europe, a region of Europe where you can feel a diverse mix of cultures. It’s not fair to speak of ‘Eastern Europe’ as having one cultural identity – but across it you can feel elements of Greek, Byzantine, Eastern Orthodox, Russian and sometimes Ottoman cultural influences. It’s a unique part of the world, which has a rich and complex history – from the Greek Empire, Macedonian Empire, through to the Cold War and Balkan revolutions – and it’s truly fascinating to discover.
