Okay, Europe is pretty awesome as a travel destination, but it has its difficulties. It's expensive to get there, communicating with the locals can be difficult, and even if blazing around the hairpin turns of the Amalfi Coast didn't already present the serious possibility of death, what's the point if you can't do it… » 10/27/14 12:00pm Monday 12:00pm
