Daily life in Europe

In the early Middle Ages people had to work so hard growing food that they had little time to have fun. But if they became richer they had more time to spend on music, reading and playing games.

Most people never travelled outside their own country, but this started to change as it became easier to get around. People would go on religious journeys, and rich people even travelled just to see other countries, as tourists.
