By some people’s standards these days, I am not the most well travelled person, but I absolutely love exploring new places! So I do hope in the coming years I can see lots of new countries and cities and beautifully jaw-dropping scenery! I have yet to venture outside of Europe, there are definitely many corners of this world I want to see, but there are also still so many places I want to see within Europe. I think European destinations are also very realistic places for me as they are well within reach and it will not cost an arm and a leg for me to get anywhere.
I recently went to Barcelona (blog post on that here), and have previously been with my family to Paris, Majorca, Turkey and Cyprus.
Here are my Top 5 Places I would most like to visit within Europe in future!

Italy is my number one place I want to visit. I just think architecturally and historically I will absolutely love it! Architecture and stunning scenery are probably the two things that most grab me when thinking about holidays. As much as I love the sunshine, I couldn’t go on consecutive beach holidays as I feel there’s so much more than that! Plus I get bored after lying around for a few days. Excitingly, me and my boyfriend are planning on booking a September trip to Rome and Florence within the next few weeks! So this member of the wishlist may be ticked off already by September, so exciting!
If I were to go on a beach holiday, I would definitely be choosing to go to one of the Greek Islands! They look absolutely stunning. There are so many choices, Kefalonia, Santorini, Crete, Mykonos, Zante… I don’t know which I’d choose, but with that beautiful crystal blue sea lapping against every shore, I think it’s a safe bet you’d have a blissful holiday.
Norway takes my fancy because of a few things. Firstly, those spectacular views of the Northern Lights! I bet experiencing them in the flesh is absolutely incredible. Secondly, the stunning scenery with thousands of lakes and mountains. And thirdly, because I am curious as to what it’s like there in terms of a general atmosphere; it’s often high up on lists of happiness and best countries in the world to live, so I would love to see what that’s about!
I am very partial to a city break. I love them and don’t go on enough. Just exploring and wandering the streets, soaking up the atmosphere and dining out in lovely restaurants! What could be better and more fulfilling. Prague looks like a beautiful city with wonderful Gothic architecture I would love to see up close.
I really struggled with this last spot. There’s a ton of other places I’d like to go, BUT, I just loved Paris so much that I think I would choose to go there again ahead of some other new places. It is a truly beautiful city, I spent a week there with my family when I was 16 which was amazing, but despite that I know there are loads more bits of it to be enjoyed.
Other places that nearly made it into my top 5 were Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Budapest and the Algarve of Portugal. Maybe it should’ve been a top 10! But that would be totally out of reach… Let’s start small.
