Breda, Netherlands

While Fandom Travel is near and dear to my heart, Accessible Travel is supremely important to me as well.

So when an article crossed my path about the city of Breda in the Netherlands and how it is the most accessible city in Europe, I knew I had to share it.

Europe, generally, is NOT built with accessibility in mind. Cobblestones, stairs, narrow doorways, etc are the norm.

Read about how Breda changed all that, and their website, to make them the most accessible city in Europe.

Also, a huge happy birthday to my amazing husband, who is turning six squared today!

ETIAS in 2021

This is more of an update than a Fandom Travel post, although if you want to travel to Europe for Fandom stuff, it applies!

In 2021, the European Travel Information and Authorization System will be up and running, and anyone from 61 countries, including Canada, will have to go through a detailed security check if they wish to travel to Europe.

Note: This is NOT a Visa.

You will need your valid passport in order to fill out the application.

After the online submission of your ETIAS application (which they say will take about ten minutes to complete), there is a minimal fee of approximately $11 CAD, and then it will only take a few minutes for it to be processed.

Minors must have a legal guardian complete the ETIAS for them. They are exempt from the fee.

You can check out the full details, including what information is required for the application, on the ETIAS website here.

Munich, Germany

Do you love The Neverending Story? Munich, Germany has an film studio called Bavaria Filmstadt that includes rides on Falkor! This place is so much more, though, and has a filming classroom and a visual effects studio, and has space for children’s birthday parties.

There have been many movies filmed here, including The Neverending Story, and there are tons of props to see on a fully guided tour.
