“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” ― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It

I still haven’t met one person that doesn’t like to travel and discover new places, see new people, and meet new cultures. This summer I had the opportunity of flying for the first time and now that I’ve made sure I can do it without almost having a heart attack there’s nothing more I wish than travelling. These are 9 places in Europe I would love to travel to one day.

Reykjavik, Iceland
Reykjavik is the capital and largest city of Iceland which makes it the perfect place for starting to explore the country. This city seems to have a bit of everything: museums, parks with restaurant and bars and incredibly breath-taking landscapes. Visiting the Blue Lagoon – a geothermal spa – is probably one of the biggest attractions and I wouldn’t mind getting my butt in there someday, at all.

Nice, France
Nice might not be Paris but it is certainly a city that deserves to be seen. It is located in the French Riviera (or Côte d’Azur for you French lovers), which means unbelievable beaches where I could lay all day long. That’s not all – Nice also allows you to visit Cannes and Monaco simply by taking a quick trip by train, meaning you can stay in Nice and visit two more gorgeous places, it’s always a win.

Santorini, Greece
Santorini has to be one of the most well-known islands of Greece and certainly one of the biggest attractions. All the other islands don’t really get far behind as the beautiful scenery of the ocean could make some people’s eyes tear (including mine). This is definitely a place that has been sitting on my list of places to travel to for a few years now and I hope I won’t have to away many years to cross it off the list.

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam is the well-known capital of Netherlands and a city full of history – visiting the Anne Frank House is almost imperative and for the art enthusiasts, there are dozens of museums and galleries to take a look at such as the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh Museum. I’d love to visit the city between April and May and hopefully see those beautiful fields of tulips.

Reine, Norway
Reine is a little fishing village located on the Lofoten archipelago in Norway. Apart from the cute fishing huts, you can see everywhere you look, you can also watch the aurora borealis in the colder months (from September till April), how incredible? One of the activities suggested once you’re in this little village is whale watching (WHAT?), I could kill to do that.

Bled, Slovenia
Bled is a little town in north-western Slovenia and it’s a popular tourist destination in the country. The biggest attraction is the glacial Lake Bled from where you can also see the Bled Castle. There’s nothing I love more than a beautiful view and a calm location and this is far from being a chaotic big city so it would be perfect for a few days of relaxing.

Venice, Italy
Venice, on the other hand, is a lot more popular around the world with its beautiful canals and bridges. Let me be lame but... Isn’t that the most romantic thing you could ever see? Besides, there’s tons of attraction in this city such as St Mark’s Basilica, the Grand Canal and the Piazza San Marco. Besides, rumour has it Venice is a great place for food and who doesn’t love food? I certainly do.
