Fun facts

Travel tip 104: Always research your destination before going. It enriches the experience. And it's rather impressive to throw around random facts about far-away countries. Read on, world traveler!

Capital: Edinburgh
Official Language(s): English, Gaelic, Scots
Population: Around 5.2 million
Misc: Scotland has about 790 islands, 130 of which are inhabited

Capital: London
Official Language: English
Population: Around 51 million
Misc: English people consume more tea per capita than anybody else in the world

Capital: Paris
Official Language: French
Population: Around 66 million

The greatest adventures are hands-on and active!

Your trip to Europe will include much more than museums, iconic landmarks and amazing sites. Sea kayaking, mountain biking and even a "spy mission" will keep you on your toes. You'll even get to particpate in authentic Scottish Highland games like the caber toss (that's what the guy on the right is doing), stone put and hammer thrown. Are you doing any extra physical activity to prepare for your adventure?
