What should you do while in Europe?

Definitely get a tour through the Porsche factory in Stuttgart, Germany, like I did. You have to arrange it months ahead of time, but the tour is free. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Even if you don't like cars, you will definitely be able to appreciate the factory.

There are so many countries in Europe, so it's tough for me to advise you where to go and what to do. I have only been to Switzerland, Germany and Italy, so I can only tell you about my experiences. Otherwise, I wouldn't be credible, and why would you want to trust what I say?

If you plan on going to Italy, here is the tester of where to travel -- what type of Italian food do you like? If you are into heavy flavors of Southern Italy, that's where you would enjoy going the most. If you like the tastes of Northern Italy better, like I do, go there. When you travel, especially to Europe, your world almost solely revolves around food.

So if you go to Northern Italy, DON'T pass up Venice, Florence and Spoleto. You get all of the best worlds -- a city among water, a city that never sleeps, and a city in the country.

If you appreciate gorgeous countryside and taking "the scenic route," definitely check out Switzerland.
