The Schengen Agreement has made visiting Europe so much easier for non-EU-travellers. Abolition of the borders for each of the EU nations and the implementation of an external border for the EU states is every traveler's dream come true. While it reduces the time and money required for various visas for various countries, it also, unfortunately, eliminates the thrill of having one's passport stamped at every country they visit.

The countries under the Schengen Visa are all close to each other, making the travel from one country to another easy. Also, all these countries have something different to offer in terms of the people, the views and the way of life. The north with its famous northern lights is so different from the south and its coastal views. The richness of Western Europe and its structures are not in par with the countryside views that the East of Europe offers. They can't be compared as they are two entirely different things. And one has to see it and experience it, to understand it...

For now, Welcome to Europe and see it, as I have!!!
