As we are all well aware, travelling has been off the cards for a while now. Hopefully, the world will start to open up soon and travel will become easier again. For now, I’ve been reminiscing about past trips and thinking about places I’d love to visit one day. Europe has a wealth of incredible places to see and I can’t wait to explore again. I thought I’d share some of the places I’ve either been to and loved and also some destinations that are top of my bucket list of places to visit.
Berlin I think has hands down been my favourite place to visit. The trip was incredible and I loved every minute there. I have always been intrigued by all things German so finally visiting the country was everything I’d hoped for. The city of Berlin has so much to offer. It is full to the brim of history, beauty, and character. There is so much to explore and I loved being there. I would go back tomorrow if I could! If you’ve never visited I cannot recommend it enough.

Ljubljana is a recent addition to my bucket list of places to visit but it looks gorgeous. Had the pandemic not happened I most likely would’ve visited it in 2020. Sadly that never happened so it is my number one place to travel to now. The scenery looks gorgeous and I’d love to explore the city. It seems like a slightly more underrated place to visit in Europe but I cannot wait to visit one day. The castle and Dragon Bridge look so lovely and I would love to take a day trip to Lake Bled too.
Edinburgh is another destination that had it not been for the pandemic would be crossed off my bucket list. I did have this trip booked twice but both times it got cancelled and it is now off the cards. Everyone I know that has visited Edinburgh absolutely loved it there. It seems to be quite an imposing and atmospheric city in terms of architecture but is also beautiful. There’s so much to explore there and I am desperate to visit the optical illusion centre!
Amsterdam has always been one of my favourite cities and I’ve visited it three times now. It’s such a beautiful city to just wander around the streets and explore. There are so many canals that it’s also very easy to get lost or get confused about where you are! Like Berlin, it has quite a rich history and a trip to Anne Frank’s House is an absolute must-do. I’ve loved each visit and I also have a guide on things to do in Amsterdam if you’d like to discover some things to do!
Paris is somewhere I visited quite a few years ago now. It’s such a gorgeous place and the buildings are beautiful. Obviously it’s known as the city of love so I think it would make a great place to visit with a future partner. Paris has so much to see and do and it’s such a dreamy city. This is high on my list of places I’d like to travel to again and seeing it on Emily in Paris made me want to go back even more!
These are just a selection of some of the places that I would love to visit one day or visit again. I have really missed being able to travel and have found myself looking back on old trips quite a lot recently. Writing travel guides are some of my favourite posts and I haven’t been able to do that in such a long time. Fingers crossed travelling will become easier and some of these destinations will soon be ticked off of the bucket list!
Where would be on your bucket list of places to visit? Have you visited any of these destinations?
