Yay another travel blog! I haven't written one in so long due to the pandemic and travel not really being as accessible anymore, but the future is bright. We may as well start thinking about places we'd like to go as something to look forward to. Or if you're like me, you would have been thinking about travel this whole time.

If you are dying to travel when it's safe again then you should start by checking out this amazing list of cities in Europe that I have lined up for you.

10 cities you need to visit in Europe

1. Amsterdam

I have been to Amsterdam twice now and would still love to go again. There is so much to do and I really loved it there. It's not too far to fly from the UK either and you can usually find reasonably priced flights.

2. Sorrento

I think Sorrento, and the Amalfi Coast are some of my favourite places in the world. Everywhere you go is just so beautiful. Staying in Sorrento, it's really easy to travel to other places along the Amalfi Coast too like Positano, Amalfi and Capri. I love Italy and would love to see more of it, so many Italian cities are on my list.

3. Krakow

Krakow is such a beautiful city with a lot of history. It's also really close to Auschwitz Concentration Camp which is the reason I went. It's really good prices to go out for food and drinks there too and again, flights from the UK can be found at reasonable prices a lot of the time.

4. Dortmund

My family and I have been to Dortmund for the last couple of Christmas markets, except for 2020 because of the pandemic. My family used to live there and the Christmas market is amazing so I really love going there, although I haven't been there any other time of year that I can remember. I would definitely recommend the Christmas market though.

5. London

I know London isn't too far for me to travel but I still think it should be included as it is one of my favourite places! There is just so much to do and I keep seeing more and more things I want to add to my list of things to do in London for next time I go. I always have such a good time in London and haven't visited in a while due to the pandemic.

6. Dublin

I have been to Dublin twice now too and I loved it both times. If you want to go somewhere for nice weather then it's probably not the place for you but I really love Dublin it's such a cute city with so much personality and the people are a lot more friendly than in London.

7. Paris

OK I admit I only visited Paris for one day with college when I went to Disneyland but I really enjoyed my time there and would love to visit again for longer. I feel like it's just a classic place to go and if you want to travel around Europe, you need to go there.

8. Cardiff

This is definitely an underrated city and again, it's not very far for me to travel. I only went to Cardiff for a couple of days for work experience but it seems like a good place for nightlife and shopping. Hopefully I will be able to go again soon.

9. Barcelona 

Barcelona is one of my favourite cities in the world. It just has it all with beautiful architecture, amazing food and the beach!

10. Budapest

Finally, I would love to travel to Budapest I just think it looks really cool and hopefully I will be able to go soon and say more about why it's a good city to visit.

I might write a list like this of UK cities that you need to visit too, let me know if you'd like to see that.
