    Arrow A Trip To/In Europe

    "He is preparing for a trip to Europe."
    "He is preparing for a trip in Europe."

    Could both mean the same thing?

    "He is preparing for a trip to Europe" might imply he is in Japan or Argentina at the moment.
    "He is preparing for a trip in Europe" might imply he is already in Europe, or perhaps he lives in Europe and wants to visit other European countries.
