Europe

Greetings from Europe postcard

 Initially in Europe travel was done by soldiers, nobles, religious pilgrims, and merchants. Many travel accounts were written by wealthy Gentlemen travelers like Colonel Thomas Thornton.  As the 20th century grew closer more common folk could afford to travel the continent. Today people travel to Europe for a number of reasons including food, landmarks like the Eiffel tower or any number of medieval castles, or for natural scenery like the Irish Cliffs and Norwegian scenery similar to that captured here by John Clements.
