    In/around Europe

    Hi there!

    I believe I may use 'in' or 'around' interchangeably in the sentence below. Any thoughts?


    Between May and June I was traveling in/around Europe.


    Cheers,
    Tito

    Re: In/around Europe

    Traveling in Europe means you were somewhere in Europe. This would be the case whether you spent the whole time in Monaco or visited Portugal, Sweden, Bulgaria, Italy, and everywhere in between.

    Traveling around Europe means you visited a number of different places in Europe.
