where should I go in Europe?

I don't usually post on a Saturday, but today I need all of your help!

I'm jet setting to France in a few weeks to visit one of my best friends who is living there. We met while studying abroad, and it was love at first macaron. She is now teaching in Dijon, about two hours south east of Paris, and we are going to do a little European vacation in February.

I'll be flying into Paris, and after visiting her in Dijon for two days, we want to go somewhere else. Now why is this a dilemma?? So many beautiful places to go in Europe...well...I had my heart set on Morocco.

Like seriously set. Remember this old post?

Yeah. Well, two girls alone in morocco + limited budget = not the smartest idea.


While I'm still recovering from the fact that I won't be getting lost in the souks anytime soon, my brain is filled with wonderment as I think of where I want to go. Right now our #1 pick is Portugal! We've heard so many lovely things about it, and I think it would be the warmest place to go in February.

Look at this beauty.

 Spotted: Palm trees! Major plus.

Here is the dilemma -- is there anywhere else we HAVE to go to, no questions asked?? I've been to the following places in Europe, and would like to try a new place.

  • England
  • Scotland
  • France
  • Italy
  • The Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Czech Republic
  • Austria
  • Switzerland
My other ideas of places to go:
  1. Sweden
  2. Denmark
  3. Brussels
  4. Luxembourg
  5. Germany
Help!! Where have you lovely readers traveled to? Or heard fabulous things about?? I'm desperately needing help with this planning!

I'm from Portugal... and I know that I'm not being really impartial here, but, Lisbon & Oporto are great cities to spend a couple of days... The monuments and the culture are amazing, the prices are very low, and you can have so much fun in our nightlife...! ;)

I also recomend Barcelona, London, Budapest and Berlin :DDD*

I was in Europe this past summer for work and spent a day and a half in Stockholm, I wish I could have spent more time, it was amazing, I fell in love with the city! Copenhagen is great as well! Another city I feel in love with though, was Helsinki, Finland!

I am going to Copenhagen and St. Petersburg in March and can't wait, but Portugal sounds pretty incredible. Next on my list is Istanbul!

Courtney said...

If you don't want to go the usual route I would recommend Budapest or Prague. Both are beautiful city's with a great night life.

Budapest is absolutely one of my favorite European cities! I lived in Sweden for some time, and Stockholm is amazing. January/ February maybe isn't the best time go though... It's best in Summer. (Although, Christmas in Sweden is unbeatable). Wherever you end up, enjoy and have a fabulous time!
