#8 Travel Insurance for free?

Travel Insurance is an item that frequently shows up when it comes to traveling abroad. Even more so if the trip is to Europe, where insurance is a requirement for entry, even if its presentation is not always requested at the border. It is a fact that it may easily become very expensive if you need health care abroad and do not have the Travel Insurance. These insurances can be quite expensive, and since our…

# 7 Thrown out of the train in Portugal

#2 Have you ever heard about Schengen?

If you want to travel to Europe, it’s very important to know about Schengen. But it’s okay if you don’t, since we didn’t know too before we traveled and even many Europeans have no clue about what it is. We never heard about it and, by pure luck, before we traveled, a friend asked us how long we were planing to stay in each country and we answered we didn’t know, but, according to this…
