Q2. What is your favorite mode of travel through Europe? River cruise or barge? Train or bus? Rent a car and wing it on your own?

replying to @WAVEJourney @WAVEJourney @melindacrow 1/2 We've rented cars in Ireland, Scotland & Germany, with the German Autobahn being the MOST FUN EVER. Trains are usually good throughout Europe, but there's a bias against buses. #TBINChat

replying to @WAVEJourney @WAVEJourney @melindacrow 2/2 But there's a bias against taking the bus for some reason. But we loved taking the bus in Portugal. It was basically the same price (or less) as the train, ran more often, and was about the same speed. Plus they were comfy & air conditioned. #TBINChat

Q4. Do you agree that visiting a destination in Europe via a river cruise or ocean cruise gives you a different experience? Why?
Via @WAVEJourney #TBINChat

ThirstyJourneys

replying to @WAVEJourney @WAVEJourney I believe so. Never done it, but we had friends who rented a barge for a trip to France, and they said it was a unique way to see the country. I think it slows you down and lets you experience a more leisurely pace. #TBINChat

replying to @WAVEJourney @WAVEJourney @Lon_Unattached Ask locals (we had one gal on a train in Denmark invite us to have supper with her and her mom, lol), take a wine/beer tour, use apps like Yelp. Always go a few blocks off the tourist streets - they're less busy, cheaper & the food is often better! #TBINChat

A7. The best way to find out about local cuisine, beer, wine, or spirits in Europe include getting out of the tourist zones and finding places with no English menus. That's where you'll find the authentic local experiences.
Via @Lon_Unattached #TBINChat

ThirstyJourneys

replying to @WAVEJourney @WAVEJourney @Lon_Unattached As long as you're ok with being experimental or can understand enough of the local language to order off the menu. Picky eaters might have trouble, LOL #TBINChat
