2 Days in Venice

2 Days in Venice

To continue our romantic getaway, my boyfriend and I chose the unique city of Venice. This was our first time in Venice and with only two days, we made sure to pack in all the main tourist attractions. We even crossed off “gondola ride” from our bucket list! No cars are allowed on Venice Proper so get your walking shoes ready! I do think the best way to explore is to walk aimlessly around the city, passing by all the shops and crossing over numerous canals. I would absolutely visit Venice again because two days is just not enough!

3 Days in Paris

3 Days in Paris

Of all the European cities that I have visited so far, Paris is in my top three. I absolutely loved it! I fell in love with the apartment buildings and their artistic balconies.

And who wouldn’t love watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle every night! It was such a romantic place to be and the best spot to kick off my weeklong romantic getaway with the boyfriend.

Weekend in Lisbon

Weekend in Lisbon

Lisbon wasn’t originally on my list of cities to visit during my time in Europe, but my coworker wanted to go for the beautiful weather. The best part about Lisbon for me was the food – the fresh fish and the delicious pastries! I also appreciated Lisbon’s unique charm as I walked around the city. The tourist spots might be cheap to visit, but the lines were long and operations inefficient (one of my biggest pet peeves). It wasn’t one of my favorite European cities but I would still go back for the food alone.

Weekend in Copenhagen

Weekend in Copenhagen

There is a calming charm to Copenhagen and for such a beautiful city, it’s not overly packed with tourists. This made it easy to explore the small city quickly because we didn’t waste any time in long lines. I was a bit surprised at how expensive everything in Copenhagen is, especially the food, but the beautiful attractions make it worth every penny.
