Sometimes, doing that grind in your 9-5 job- week in and week out, will soon start to tire you out physically and mentally. At the end of the day, we’re not robots. We need a break to rejuvenate ourselves so we can repeat that grind once more, because that’s what life is about… isn’t it? So stop whatever you are doing and read this post so you can imagine yourself somewhere far away from your work and the most stressful thing you’ll need to think about is how much you spent on cocktails the night before. When planning a trip across Europe, make sure you prepare and check if you need to complete an e111-renewal because it is so important in having an EHIC health to insure you are covered if any accidents were to occur. Now that you are all covered, let’s have a look at what Europe has to offer.
