Citytrips Europe

What am I planning to do on my Europe roadtrip?

Because of the fact I didn’t plan anything for this summer and of the fact my boyfriend is away for two weeks, I really wanted to do something with my time. Now as you know, I love to travel, so I decided to search for something on a budget. Plane tickets are quite expensive in peak season, so I searched for an alternative and found a bus company which travels through Europe. The bus tickets are really cheap and all the way to Luxembourg I only pay €127,-. In Luxembourg I will meet my boyfriend and we have the last couple of days together in Luxembourg and Bruxelles. So what am I planning to do and to see on my Europe roadtrip?

bremen

Bremen: 1 day (layover stop, otherwise it was such a long bus ride)

To see:
• Rathaus
• St. Petri Dom
• Haus der Bürgerschaft

I only have one day in Bremen, so I’m going to walk through the city and try to see as much as possible.

copenhagen-84358_640

Copenhagen: 4 days

To see:

This is just a guide line for me what I’m going to do the next couple of weeks. Some things I won’t do and probably I will do other things too. Traveling is about enjoyment and doesn’t need to be planned perfectly. Now I just have the highlights of the cities all in one post. So it’s easy for me to decide what I want to do, if I have ‘nothing’ to do. After this trip I will tell you what I did in each city and what I recommend to do if you are there.

My trip starts tomorrow, so if you want to be up-to-date about my trip, please follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I’ll update as much as possible, so you get a great impression of the cities! Do you have other recommendations for things to do or to see in those cities?

For only €37,- I found a return ticket to Warsaw. I couldn’t resist it and bought it. No idea what to expect, I just went.

Of course there’s much more to do in Warsaw, but those I really like the most. Continue Reading
