Terrorism: Why You Shouldn’t Let It Stop You From Travelling

November 13, 2015: Gunmen and suicide bombers carry out a series of terror attacks throughout different Paris locations. Total number of deaths: 137. More injured. Devastation. Tragedy.

I remember waking up and hopping on Facebook. A few posts by friends caught my attention:

“My heart is with those in Paris”.

Scrolling further, oblivious and confused, some references to France’s national motto, “liberté, égalité, fraternité”.

Something was wrong. The next few minutes was spent reading news article after news article, clambering for any information I could find. I remember feeling sick, completely devastated.

Why You Should Visit Europe in Winter

Every time I plan a trip to Europe for the winter I get the same questions.

“Why are you going in winter? Don’t you know how cold it will be?”

Despite the cold, winter is absolutely my favourite time of year to visit Europe.
