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.
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.
I absolutely loved spending time in Amsterdam and its surrounding cities! I could wander along the Amsterdam canals for hours on end. I’ve heard a lot about Amsterdam, especially the Red Light District, but it’s something else to experience that area and the rest of the city altogether.
