Europe Travel Tips
A Potpourri Of Travel Ideas To Share

We love to travel, and 2020 was supposed to be a big travel year for us. Like the rest of you, that hasn't happened. 

We're still dreaming about travel, reading about new destinations, and making (tentative) plans for the future. We hope all of you are well and staying safe... and that you find some inspiration here for YOUR future travels.

With vaccines arriving, let's hope we can be traveling again in 2021!

We have fun sharing all of our travel tips. 

Europe Travel Tips is will give you destination highlights to countries and cities we've visited.

We love to travel everywhere, so it's hard to concentrate on any one area of the world.

MouseTours Travels started as a way for us to share our international travel tips and write about our travels.

It's a fun way to share our adventures.  I love writing...

It creates great memories for us...

And it it's all easy to share them with you thanks to SBI.

Europe Travel Tips Takes You To More Ideas

We've been lucky enough to travel all over the world.  I guess you could say we've been scattered in our travels...

And in the same spirit, we haven't concentrated on any one travel topic in this website. 

This page is to try and help you find ideas for European trips by reading about some of the fun things we've seen and done.

We'll try to keep them grouped in categories here, so you can find the international travel tip for the destination that you need at the moment.

Europe travel tips are grouped by country.

Check Your First Trip to Europe and World Travel Tips for tips on trip planning, flights, airports and security, eco-travel and budget travel tips.

You'll find information on travel health, hotels, and all kinds of miscellaneous topics.

Or even Europe Travel Tips on Shopping like European Christmas Markets - Visit Europe In Winter!
