 I am not clear from the information if it only includes texting within Europe, or if it means you can text anywhere from Europe with this package.  I wanted confirmation that this gives full flexibility.

Confirmed :)

There are restrictions though, outlined on that page:

Restrictions: (1) Availability of service to international destinations will vary by country and is subject to change without notice. See below for partner service availability. (2) Each text message can have up to a maximum of 160 characters. If a text message is longer than 160 characters, it will be counted as an additional message. Minutes/texts/data used with the International Roaming Add-ons are charged separately from what’s included in your regular monthly plan. Not available for CDMA phones. Picture & video messaging not included in text allowance. You’ll be automatically blocked and notified if you reach $100 in data overage. We’ll require your consent to continue using additional roaming data for that bill cycle. Roaming data add-ons are not available on BlackBerry Curve or Bold smartphones (available on BlackBerry 10). Excludes directory assistance calls (411) calls.
