The continent where our roots are, Europe. A vibrant continent where you have many different cultures, many different languages and also a different climate. The climate in Europe can range from subtropical warm to a polar climate. So a lot of difference, in a relatively small continent. We prefer warmer countries such as Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, but Croatia can also charm us. Although we think the beauty of, for example, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark is definitely worth a visit. Europe has a lot to offer. Below you can see our visited countries so far.
COUNTRIES WE VISITED IN EUROPE
Belgium is our country of origin and, with Brussels, also the capital of Europe. The country where we grew up, the country we know so well. A small country compared to most countries in the world, but it has a lot to offer. For example, the western part is one of our favourite destinations in Belgium. Although there are many other beautiful places.
Perhaps this is not the most popular destination in Europe. But in the end the country still has a lot to offer, including beautiful nature and a beautiful coastline. Although you can also go on a city trip to beautiful Sofia in Bulgaria. Which, by the way, is highly recommended. This country is also ideal for budget travelers. Reasons enough to visit this country at least once.
Germany is a country that hasn’t always been at the top of our bucket list. Yet this country has a lot to offer. Just think of the beautiful nature that is rich, such as the Black Forest. Or the city trips you can make, for example Berlin or Hanover. The advantage is that you can just drive there by car from Belgium or the Netherlands.
La douce France. This saying speaks for itself. France is soft, sweet and peaceful. And it’s with reason one of our favourite destinations. Because it has so many beautiful places and they are all equally charming. Everyone knows at least one place in this country that really steals your heart.
Greece might be our favourite destination in Europe. And that is mainly due to the many beautiful islands such as Crete, Mykonos and many others. But also because of its culture, history and delicious food. In addition to all these advantages, Greece is also cheap to travel to. So only benefits!
The United Kingdom has always been a bit of an outsider in Europe. In 2020, this country no longer belongs to Europe, but we are happy to add it to this list. There is a lot to do in this country. London and Manchester, for example, are two must-see cities. And then we have not yet talked about the beautiful nature.
We believe that the Boot of Europe (Italy) is one of the most beautiful countries! This is mainly due to the beautiful regions such as Tuscany, Amalfi coast and Lake Garda. Although the Italian Tirol can certainly charm us. And in addition to all that beauty, there is of course also the delicious kitchen with its famous pizzas and pasta dishes. Wonderful Italy!
Luxembourg may not be the largest country in the world. However, this country has a lot to offer in Europe. Because in addition to some nice cities such as Vianden and Luxembourg city, this country also has a beautiful nature. In addition, you can also find some old castles and historic buildings in Luxembourg. A nice mix between culture and nature.
The Netherlands is our neighboring country. A country we still like to visit and where we feel at home. It also looks a little bit like Belgium and the language is partly the same. The climate does not differ much from ours either. It’s a nice country with vibrant cities such as Amsterdam, Eindhoven and Rotterdam.
Winter holidays may not be at the top of our favourite holidays, yet it is always a pleasure to go to this beautiful country. Because Austria has a lot to offer with its beautiful nature and nice cities such as Innsbruck, Vienna and Salzburg. Reasons enough to visit this country.
A destination within Europe that we highly recommend is Portugal. In the country of Cristiano Ronaldo you have everything. Good road and beautiful nature so it’s perfect for a roadtrip. Or book a nice citytrip. Because the cities of Lisbon and Porto are two absolute musts for those who like warm weather and good food. That is why Portugal is a favorite destination for a food cation.
Spain is a beautifully varied country that we love to travel to. And not only the mainland, but also the beautiful islands have a lot to offer! We spontaneously think of Menorca or Gran Canaria. But also Tenerife or Ibiza. We love the sun and southern vibes of Spain.
To be honest, we are mainly a fan of the warm and southern destinations in Europe. And yet this relatively cold country charmed us. And that is mainly due to the impressive nature, the cleanliness and the mentality of the people. Cities such as Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg are especially worth a visit. And it doesn’t even have to cost much. Because traveling to Sweden is much cheaper than they always say!
