AKA, my own Europe travel wishlist!
So I was feeling particularly wanderlust-y after a good ol’ Pinterest sesh (you know what I’m talking about!), and decided to put this list together and basically all the places in Europe that I’m dying to visit!
If you’re anything like me, you’ll tend to prefer being out in the wild, surrounded by lakes and mountains, rather than feeling swallowed up in a big crowded city. No matter how beautiful (and God knows some of Europe’s cities are stunning!), sometimes you just can’t beat the awe of nature and, you guessed it, water! This Cornish gal can’t live without that important element…
I’ve been on about how I’m desperate to visit Montenegro for years, and I’m so excited to be finally heading there at the end of this month for a week of yoga and mountain exploring! Sandwiched between Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia and Albania, this stunning little country has been the top of my travel bucket list ever since I first saw a photo of the Bay of Kotor a few years back. I honestly can’t wait, and am so keen to seen the stunning landscapes and lakes around this gem of Europe!
2. Norway Fjords
Who doesn’t want to go on a Norwegian Fjord cruise? Gliding along the water on a floating hotel, waking up to new and awe-inspiring mountain ranges and river views every morning; it sounds like heaven.
3. Verdon National Park, France
I recently came across a photo of the milky blue Verdon gorge on Pinterest and it’s now on my top list of places to go camping and kayaking in Europe! Just look how stunning that water is (also in the main photo of the blog post), doesn’t it look dreamy?
4. Lake Bled & Soca in Slovenia
This fairytale landscape resides in Slovenia, close to the Austrian border and at the edge of the Triglav National Park (another perfect spot for camping?). This place looks all kinds of magical, with the mountains and forests as a perfect backdrop to the beautiful Bled Castle.
5. Lake Geneva, Switzerland
Another epic backdrop, this time to the French Medieval fortress, Chillon Castle. This beautiful city and surrounding landscape sit on the edge of the Alps, so I may have to learn how to ski or snowboard to make the most of my visit too!
6. Iceland Hot Springs
So I may have had to Google whether Iceland could be considered as Europe in this list, and after some confusing and conflicting information I have come to my own conclusion that it is going in this list either way! Another magical landscape, but this time for the purpose for getting hot and steamy in the infamous hot springs. And for the stunning photo opportunities of course!
