ON their first trip to Europe most people attempt to cover too much territory in a short time. If one undertakes, as I did, to visit seven countries of northwestern Europe in six weeks, he must expect to be traveling on trains or buses and sleeping in hotels most of the time. This is true in spite of the comparatively short distances in Europe. When it is further considered that only five out of the forty-two days spent in· Europe were rainless; that at least fifteen eight- or nine-hour days were spent in the art, antique, souvenir, and apparel shops; and that an equal amount of time was devoted to visiting friends and acquaintances and just plain sight-seeing, it will probably be appreciated that in my initial visit to Europe I had to be content to a considerable degree with studying the famous European forests from train-windows.
