One dream that this pandemic made a lot of us put on hold until further notice is traveling to our favorite destinations, especially those that exist in the magnificent piece of paradise, Europe.
It saddens all of our hearts to see this beautiful continent submerge to the state it is on now. However, we must always remember it as the lively breathtaking treasure land it always has been. And we also must keep our Europe travel plans intact, even if on hold.
