We’ve committed to another year in the UK, but I think this time it will definitely be the last one. Which means we have to travel as much as possible while it’s still cheap to visit Europe.
Our ever growing bucket/while we live in Europe list has been updated since last year, and since then we’ve visited most of the places we hoped to, and have plans for the rest in the not too distant future.
Krakow-the history, architecture and food! We visited Krakow in December 2016, ate so many pierogis, visited Christmas markets and paid our respects at Auschwitz. It was a weekend we won’t soon forget.
Ben Nevis-It’s the only one of the three peaks we still haven’t summited (we hit the highest in Wales and England, only Scotland remains!) We have finally conquered the three peaks (even if it took us 3 years). We finished off with a Ben Nevis hike this August.
Switzerland We flew to Zurich this summer and spent a few days exploring Grindelwald and hiking with friends.
-Oktoberfest!- We survived the worlds biggest beer festival, and it was awesome!
-Madrid-Because who can say no to art, churros and tapas?-We have flights booked for January 2018, and I’m looking forward to spending a few days in Madrid and Toledo.
Nice and Monaco We spent a gorgeous weekend in the Cote d’Azur getting our fill of sun and rose wine this spring.
The Cotswolds A four day walking holiday around the Cotswolds was a really enjoyable way to spend the Easter holidays.
Greece- Athens and some beautiful islands -Still on the list!
-Rome– We spent a long weekend being awed by ancient structures and delicious Gelato in March.
Croatia – Plitvice National Park, Dubrovnik and the Dalmation Coast A week long road/boat/train trip around Croatia and Slovenia was the highlight of our spring vacations.
-Cinque Terre- cliffside towns, hiking and wine? Yes please.- Still on our to do list, but we’ve booked a hotel there for our trip in the spring!
And there are a few new additions!
We’ve put our hats in the ring for tickets to the world cup in Russia next summer.
A trip around Romania is currently topping our wishlist, the castles, mountains and history all sound amazing.
We’d like to visit more of Eastern Europe as well, Belgrade and Sarajevo look intriguing.
Porto seems like an awesome weekend getaway, warm weather and port!
A wine tour in Tuscany is currently in the works and I can’t wait!
What’s on your travel to-do list?
