Summer in Europe is a very interesting period, not only because of the beautiful weather, but because of the numerous cultural events.
Most people staying in their homes while they are on leave. Of course there is nothing wrong with that, because they worked hard all year round. Unfortunately, most of us are choosing this option very often. However, if we exclude fatigue as an excuse to stay in the house during the summer, it sometimes turns out that we do not know what really to do with ourselves as it comes to leave. So now we should think about something interesting, and cool for the summer. If you like concerts, festivals, etc, plus you're passionate about long trips, we have a few suggestions below.
