    Default Business trip to/in Europe for a few weeks.

    Can you saying the following:

    Business trip to/in Europe for a few weeks.

    Can both be used, or does it have to be to?

    It might be possible to use either "to" or "in" depending on the wider context. What you have written doesn't work as a stand alone sentence, though.
