If you’ve ever been to Europe you know that there are endless cities to wander, history to explore, and cultures to admire. I’m excited to announce that this Summer I am planning to do just that- I’ll be taking a two month solo-backpacking trip through Europe after finishing my four year degree at University. It has been my long time dream to travel Europe for years now, and although I’ve been lucky enough to see a small part of Europe (England, Germany, Poland, and Amsterdam), there is much more to see beyond those places! Here are a few of the places on my list that I’ll be travelling to this summer:
Venice is a city known for its alluring romance and history. My parents lived in Venice for a short period of time and always reminisce on the city’s beauty and how much they’d love to go back, so this is one I can’t miss! Tuscany, Rome, Florence, the Almafi Coast and Cinque Terre are also on my list of places to see in Italy.
Stunning views, peaceful sunsets, and serene beaches are just few of the things that have drawn me to plan a visit to Greece. Greek culture is in itself has so much to offer and has always been so alluring with its diversity that I couldn’t resist wanting to immerse myself in this beautiful island.
Prague, Czech Republic
I absolutely love the look of Prague- it reminds me of Paris with its narrow streets full of beautiful buildings, churches and shops. Full of rich history and gorgeous architecture, Prague is a city with so much to do and explore that it would be a loss to overlook the largest city in the Czech Republic.
World-class art museums, winding alleys of the Gothic Quarter, and blissful beaches are where I will be beginning my backpacking trip through Europe. Those who visit Spain always seem to have the same story to tell- they fell in love with the country and its culture upon arrival, and found it heartbreakingly hard to leave behind. San Sebastian, and Madrid are also on my list of places to stop by in Spain.
My parents are originally from Poland and so I’ve been lucky enough to visit every few years to see my family. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel to Poland in a few years but I would do anything to see Krakow again. The stunning churches, brick walkways and Eastern hospitality can make almost anyone feel at home. I’ve also added Jelenia Gora, and Poznan to my list of places to visit within Poland.
The Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany is one of the many landmarks I’d love to visit in the country. This castle looks as though it came straight out of a fairy tale and is one of the most enchanting buildings I have ever seen. Dresden and Freiburg are also on my list of places to see in Germany however, my list is still growing and I will definitely add more stops in Germany.
