    i know it's gonna be off season but I am planning on visiting Europe late March early April time.
    since it's my first time, I figure I can get some help from people in Europe.

    anyone wanna show me around their countries?
    or any tips on must dos or must sees?

    thanks!

    If you can narrow it down to saying which countries or cities you might be going to it might be easier to give some advice.

    It's OK to bum a fag in London but you might get arrested for patting someones fanny.
    Just these, nothing else !

    Haha!! Love it wolf! Well i'm in the south west UK so probably not much help. But remember:

    No cows may be driven down the roadway between 10 AM and 7 PM unless there is prior approval from the Commissioner of Police.
    And
    Excluding Sundays, it is perfectly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow.

    Enjoy your trip! :-)

    ROFLMAO applies.

    Well played on the colloquial speech.

    Hi JPARK,
    even if you travel in march or April, you can have fresh snow if you are lucky.
    I'm thinking of french alps or in Switzerland. It depend of the weather. I rembember some past years, between March and April : You can have 20° C , or 5°C, you never know what will append above 10~14 days.

    In which country you plan to travel ?

    Nice! Any tips from a local you can share?
    I plan to visit Cervinia again one day via the haute route. (Cue rocky training montage)

    Where else in the world can you find a customs/immigration checkpoint in the middle of a ski hill?!
