European bucket list

Aimee Pearce

I love a good bucket list! They are inspiring and dreamy while at the same time incredibly frustrating because they only seem to grow! Is it just me or do you also seem to add another 10 items to your bucket list for every one you tick off. My bucket list is ever-evolving and ever-growing but honestly, that's the way I like it!

So while Elissa is managing to tick some European highlights off her bucket list this month, I've stumbled upon a great list called The short haul bucket list: 30 places in Europe you must see before you die

It's worth having a look through the photo gallery the Daily Telegraph Travel team has compiled, but I've summarised it here for you with some photos of places I've been lucky enough to visit:

  • Var, Provence, France

My list still some fairly significant dints in it but it still needs a bit of work! With these widely published bucket lists, you always notice a few landmarks that leave you a bit stumped...the Sainte Chapelle in Paris...It looks amazing! How did I miss it?!?!?! The Sistine Chapel of course will have to stay locked in my memory - strictly no photos allowed! And then there are always some places that you will swear should have made it onto the list. Cappadocia in Turkey? The Cinque Terre in Italy???? The islands of Croatia???? But of course - lists can't be endless...or can they?!?!

Are any of your favourite places in Europe missing? Or any hot spots you are just dying to visit? While Elissa is gallivanting the European countryside living out her bucket list, come and dream with me!
