Top European destinations for 2015!
Top European destinations for 2015, from historical cities to marvelous nature, here’s my top 10 list!
Seems like 2014 is coming to an end! It was a great year, filled with work, new experiences and growth for most of us.
But 2015 is looking very promising for me, with many travel destinations, many exciting plans and experiences awaiting.
In 2015 I’m teaming up with Eurail, in order to cross Europe by land from the westerner point in Lisbon, till Turkey, where I will then fly to Asia. This is one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever had and a dream come true!
These are some of the many cities and villages I will visit during my long trip through Europe!
TOP EUROPEAN DESTINATIONS
The Azores are a group of islands, situated on the Atlantic ocean and part of Portugal. This is the only European destination I will fly to.
I’ve been wanting to visit the Azores for more than a decade. The Azores are famous for the lush green and unspoiled nature, as well as the surreal volcanic sceneries.
I got my ticket already and on the 4th of March, I’m off to some of the most beautiful islands in Europe. These islands with a long tradition in the hunting of whales, are not the most famous European spot to watch these magnificent animals, as well as swimming with wild dolphins. So, gues what I’ll be doing there? Yes! Whale watching!
Costa Brava is part of Catalunya – Spain, and a place where the Mediterranean sun and natural beauty walk hand in hand.
I’ve been to Costa Brava many times. When I lived in Barcelona, Costa Brava was my favorite escape from the stress and pollution of the city. I used to grab my van and my dogs and without a map, just drive along the coast, till I’d find a desert beach with turquoise clean waters. And I always did!
I’m returning to Costa Brava after many years away, and I’m excited! This time, I won’t miss my chance to indulge into the wonderful foods from Spain!
Capital of Romania, Bucharest tourism is still small which means, the city is quite authentic. This city will be an extraordinary experience for its extraordinary food and the vibrant Bucharest nightlife!
I’ve always wanted to visit Romania. Maybe because of the endless tales and stories about count Dracula, or maybe because of the incredible nature and culture that is still very unspoiled in this part of Europe.
I’ll be visiting Bucharest with a group of fellow travel bloggers, catching the most beautiful spots and flavors in beautiful photos for you guys!
A popular Mediterranean Island for party seekers, but is that all Ibiza has to offer?
Ibiza is one of the top European destinations for the party seekers. I would even say Ibiza is the Cancun of Europe, but is partying the only attraction of Ibiza?
Not at all! Ibiza is a beautiful Island filled with natural wonders, incredible beaches and small picturesque cities. And this is my goal, to explore the natural beauty of this Spanish Island.
Located in the Linguria region of Italy, Cinqui Terre is one of those places that should be on everyone’s bucket list and on the top European destinations for 2015!
If you’ve been to Italy before, you might know that the whole country is gorgeous! Italy is probably the most beautiful country in Europe, in my personal opinion. Cinqui Terre is one of those spots that will leave you breathless.
A Unesco heritage site and a delight to the visitors who fall in love with this picturesque area of the Italian Riviera.
Meteora is another incredible UNESCO heritage site awaiting to be discovered, in beautiful Greece.
Meteora is a unique place in Greece. Considered a Unesco heritage site, this place has stolen the heart of some of my friends who visited this beauty. I’ve been wanting to visit Meteora for a while and 2015 will finally be the year when this dream will come true.
And according to my friends Margherita and Nick, the Meteora Sunset is something to die for!
The capital and largest city in Slovenia, and according to what I’ve heard so far, I will fall in love with the city.
Considered one of the least explored gems in Eastern Europe, Ljubljana is a city that is waiting to be discovered. I wonder what kind of vegan and vegetarian foods I will find here.
Budapest, the capital of Hungary and one of the biggest cities in Europe.
Famous for the impressive monuments and history, it’s incredible I still didn’t manage to visit the pearl of the East. Lonely Planet nominated it one of the top destinations of Europe. I can’t wait to finally explore the vegan foods of Budapest.
THE ELBE SANDSTONES
The Elbe Sandstones are a mountain range located between Germany and Czech Republic.
Look at this incredible site, what do you think? Amazing, isn’t it? Well, this is one of the most incredible natural European destinations on my bucket list.
One of the most Iconic cities in Turkey, Istanbul is one of my top European destinations for 2015.
This will be my second visit to Istanbul, one of the most culturally and historically fascinating cities in Europe. Istanbul is a bridge between the East and the West, an exotic city that leaves no time for boredom.
The Spice Baazar, the beauty of the mosques and the smells and sounds of this city, made me fall in love once. I have no doubts I’ll fall in love twice.
These are my top European destinations for 2015 and I can’t wait to finally explore each one of them. Is there a destination you think I should add to my trip? Let me know on the comment section bellow.
