Madrid – 10/10 City Guide

Madrid often gets overlooked by travelers who choose to head to the beach side city of Barcelona instead. Before traveling to Madrid I had heard mixed reviews, but this was quickly shut down by my absolute love of the city when I arrived. With an insane party scene and probably even more beautiful architecture than Barcelona itself, it’s hard to decide what to fit into 10 hours of exploring, but I tried my best.

My 10 Favourite Party Cities in Europe

Europe is the ultimate destination for a lot of things, and you can bet partying is one of those. Other ‘top party cities’ lists will include the typical tourist spots. Paris, Rome, Amsterdam etc etc. But in my opinion, those big cities are not as crazy as they’re talked up to be. Of course they have potential, but most of the time these kinds of places are bursting with historical attractions as the highlight and the nightlife is either far from the city centre, very spread out throughout a large metropolitan or filled with a lot of big tourist traps. A lot of the time you really need to know where to go as a local. And in Amsterdam’s case, marijuana is everywhere and with a huge focus on sex, it isn’t exactly my idea of a party environment. I’ll cut to the chase and tell you what destinations are traveler friendly party spots. Places where it’s easy to find a good party and easy to meet other travelers.

Sarajevo – 10/10 City Guide

Sarajevo is bursting with history and beauty. It is said that the wars of the 90’s both began and ended here as Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in the city, instigating World War I and the Bosnian War ended here in 1995. Bosnia & Herzegovina is one of the most underrated countries in all of Europe. The capital Sarajevo has much to offer tourists.

How to decide where to go on a short trip to Europe

Europe may not be large in size compared to other continents across the world, but it definitely is enormous in what it offers for travelers. If you have months of time to travel through Europe, then deciding where to go might not be too big of an issue. But if you’re one of the majority of us with a two or – if you’re lucky – three week vacation period, it can be tricky to decide where to visit. Here, I’ve tried to make that decision a little bit easier (but seriously, good luck!)

The 15 most romantic places in Europe

Having been to over half of the countries within Europe (34 of the 51), I would say I have gotten to know the place fairly well. Add this with the fact that I’m a sucker for beautiful things that pull at the heart strings and you could only guess I have tried to source out the most romantic places this continent has to offer. And don’t think these locations are only destined for the loved up couples, because these places will make you fall in love in a different kind of way. And this love won’t steal all the covers and chew with its mouth open.
