There is something beautiful about Europe of the 1970. A new era entered the scene and there was this idea of freedom that everyone seemed to latch on to. The Eurailpass came at a mere 24 dollars for a trip from England to Italy. In between people passed through heavenly landscapes without the irritating interference of a smartphone. Ask yourself? Do you really immerse yourself in the beauty of your surroundings when you travel to a place so ethereal?
