Went to Switzerland but skipped a fondue feast? Well, that quite does not sound like a perfect trip; right? There are some clichés so clichéd that there is no skipping them; be it a cable ride to the top of Mount Titlis or a kiss under Eiffel Tower, Europe has clichés abound. Here is a quick list of our favourites if you are thinking of what to do when in Europe.
Coffee in Vienna
When in Vienna, get a coffee (or more). Coffee is so inherent to Vienna’s culture that it is considered an extension of everyday life here. It is believed that Vienna is home to 52 different brews, Melange being the most traditional and a clear favourite. A must-do if you are into outdoor cafes and typical cobbled streets.
An evening at the Eiffel Tower in Paris
When on a date with Paris, spare an evening to watch the Eiffel Tower in all its glory, lit up so beautifully that it will take your breath away. It stays lit till 1 AM every day, sending light beams from its top! A fascinating sight, it is best watched from Place du Trocadero. Cliched yes, but absolutely worth it.
Abbey Road Crossing in London
This one is the epitome of all clichés, but its connection with the Beatles will still make you go for it. An ode to that era of music, this regular traffic crossing in London could not have been less regular. Go here with three friends in tow for that perfect photo; come back home, get it printed and framed. You will have a worthy conversation starter for many parties to come.
While I wrap up this one, a lot more travel clichés are out there; think of a gondola ride in Venice! Drop down a comment below if you know of more such clichés for Europe, we are reading.
