My bucket list for Europe

I was born to be a traveler. Indeed, I did my first trip abroad when I was only 3 weeks old and since then I’ve never stopped.
I always need to have a trip planned to keep going. If not, I can’t motivate myself. Travel is my life and my life is travel.

I had the idea to make a bucket list to help me planning future trips.
I wanted to make a single list but soon realized that it would be too long and therefore decided to make one by continent. These lists will only include places I’ve never been / experiences I’ve never lived before( even if there are many places I would like to visit again / experiences I would like to live again).

I secretly hope that my boyfriend will have a look at them and plan a surprised getaway somewhere. One can dream…

So let’s start with the Old Continent!
