Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.

Salisbury is a cathedral city in Wiltshire, England. The city itself forms the biggest part of the Salisbury district. It is also sometimes called New Sarum to distinguish it from the original site of settlement at Salisbury, Old Sarum. A native of Salisbury is known as a Sarumite. The city is located in the south-east of Wiltshire, at the edge of Salisbury Plain. In 2006, the population of the city was 45,000.
Salisbury has a strong artistic community, with galleries situated in the city centre, including one in the public library. Salisbury's annual International Arts Festival provides a program of theatre, live music, dance, public sculpture, street performance and art exhibitions. They are popular in the summer, particularly Queen Elizabeth Gardens as the water there is shallow and slow-flowing enough to enter quite safely.

Salisbury is the kind of town you daydream about. It is a city with endless recreational opportunities, rich history, and modern day luxuries.
