Travel in Europe: Picnic is cheap way to eat as the locals do

posted: 04/12/2015 2 a.m. Discuss

If you want to eat like a local -- enjoying tasty local specialties economically -- picnic. While I'm the first to admit that restaurant meals are an important aspect of any culture, in Europe I picnic almost daily. This is not solely for budgetary reasons.

April marks the 10th anniversary of the death of John Paul II, one of the most beloved popes of recent times. During his papacy, from 1978 to 2005, he was the highly visible face of the Catholic Church as it labored to stay relevant in an increasingly secular world.

When I'm visiting Europe, I often run across one of these shrines.
