The sun is here, summer is approaching and I’m dying to go on holiday.
Living in Europe, I’m blessed with being able to travel to so many incredible locations in a matter of hours and usually can grab return flights for less than £100.
It’s no secret that I’m a travel addict, I hate to stay in one place for too long and get itchy feet if I don’t have a holiday booked. Last year, I visited some beautiful places – Reykjavic, Florence and Stockholm, to name a few highlights – and this year, I’ve already got a little trip planned for each month until October. (Don’t worry, I’m planning to fill the last three slots!)
I’m aiming to visit 30 countries before I’m 30 – at the moment I’m on 22, with just six years left – and short haul holidays are a great way to tick these off…
So here are five of my favourite European city-breaks:
Barcelona is my second home as my mum lives there, so I’m a bit biased but it is a great city to visit. I am always scouting out the cheapest deals for booking holidays to Spain, to ensure I can return at least three times a year. Barca is great for its architecture, shopping, sunbathing and munching on tapas. It’s a place that perfectly mixes both sun, sand and sea with the bustle of a big city.
Another one of my favourite cities in Europe is Florence. It has beautiful winding streets and the best sandwiches in Europe. You can waste so many hours wandering around its art galleries, basilica churches and museums, soaking in Italian culture.
Okay, I doactually live here but who doesn’t love a Staycation? London is my favourite city in the world – there are so many different things to do and each area brings its own unique character. When it’s not raining, you can enjoy the parks and pub gardens and, when the weather’s not great, you can hide out in a gallery or museum. London, I love you.
