 European dreams - In the midst of lush green valleys and picturesque landscape
All too often, while sipping a cup of coffee we daydream of visiting places which invigorate our senses, the thought of distant valleys and oceans, the feeling of diving into the pool of wonder makes us ponder ' IF ', if at all we could be there at that moment. Europe is one of those places on Earth which not only satiates our wondering mind but also helps us relieve the ongoing stress of daily life.

 One Beautiful morning while climbing up the hills to reach our destination in Switzerland, we found some local cows grazing with their melodious bells ringing all the way. The clouds over those mountains provided a prefect scene of nature's bliss.

Buddha says "It is better to travel well than to arrive" and it is strongly justified in the journey of ancient places which are uphold by European Culture even today. One can see the beauty of Michael Angelo's work that classified and established the Western Art through his various sculptors and amazing paintings all over Italy, Venice and Florence. 
As we descended towards the most popular city of France, Paris, we found the glorious Eiffel Tower with its magnificent height standing right in the heart of the city. Children played on the parks with their parents and we took the lift inside the tower which provided access to most delicious food available. There were telescope provided for the travellers to get a glimpse of the brilliantly planned city. The evening became more joyous after we had the boat ride all over the water surrounding the tower.
