Lonely Planet writer Brendan Sainsbury explains why he loves Europe. "Like many young travellers, I began my life on the road in the late 1980s with a £140 Inter-rail ticket. Not having travelled outside Britain as a child, I'll never forget the excitement of arriving at Paris' Gare du Nord after dark to explore the 'City of Light'. Since then I've travelled around Europe multiple times, returning regularly to my favourite places (Andalucia, the Loire, the Dolomites, London and the English Lake District) and revelling in the diversity, intensity and complexity of this multilayered continent that I'll need at least 10 lifetimes to explore properly."
