Forget pinning more #Travelinspo shots. Your European adventure starts: NOW.
01PARDON MY FRENCH. Paris is a love affair meant to be continued. It starts with a romantic rendezvous under Pont-Marie, a fleeting kiss at the Eiffel Tower and a history lesson at Musée du Louvre. It’s home to the Mona Lisa and Coco Chanel, Jay-Z went here for his birthday and kissing in public is encouraged. And don’t get us started on the food.
02PRAGUE TIPPLES. It’s officially a thing. Prague has the best beer in Europe (sorry Carlsberg). Start with classics like Urquell, Staropramen and Budvar then make your way to local drops like Kout na Šumavě and Svijanský Rytíř. Also, don’t miss one of the best-preserved old towns in the world, the Lennon Wall and the pastry deliciousness that is trdelník.
03DUBROVNIK DUBSTEP. The country that brought you the necktie, Dalmatians and a currency named after an adorable little rodent, also happens to host the hottest city in Europe right now. Think: baroque buildings behind medieval city walls, epic Adriatic Sea sunsets and glitzy nightlife.
04SAILING THE MEDITERRANEAN. Life is all about choices. When you’re sailing in Greece, the decisions get tough. There’s the swimwear dilemma, the snorkeling versus sunbathing predicament and the impossible toss-up between jumping back in for a swim and staying right where you are. Work the tan, live the dream, forget the rest. Tough life, we know.
05ONCE WERE WARRIORS. There used to be vikings here. But modern-day Scandinavia is a mix of stylish hi-tech cities, cosy cottages, fjords and ridiculously good-looking people. There’s also the midnight sun, saunas and the home of Santa Claus. While rune stones have now officially been swapped for iPads, Scandinavia remains an effortless blend between ice age and space age.
06GREEK ISLANDS. Gyros, olives and sunshine are all crucial parts of a balanced diet. You go to Mykonos for the party, Paros for the village feel and Santorini for the best sunsets in the world. Melt away under the Mediterranean sun by day, party by night and pinch yourself regularly. If home is where the heart is, it comes with a blue roof.
07SWISS ALPS. There’s more to Switzerland than chocolate. Yodeling and cuckoo clocks aside, this is one of the most beautiful places in Europe. For a country that runs like precision clockwork, there’s no shortage of time-passing opportunities. Take on four languages, some of the world’s most epic waterfalls and the highest railway station in Europe (3,454 metres).
08V FOR VENICE. You come for the gondolas and stay for the gelato. Cruise down ancient canals or island-hop your way around in a vaporetto – life here runs on cruise control and so should you. Explore a never-ending maze of marble churches and historical relics making up one of the most complicated architectural contraptions in human history.
09VISCA BARÇA! Welcome to the stomping ground of Dali and Gaudi, where the mouthwatering tapas is only rivalled by the sangria and nights out come with a side of flamenco dancing. Expect: hip bars, cosmopolitan funkiness and a passion for football.
10ICH BIN EIN BERLINER. Once bitten twice as funky. Despite nearly three decades of Cold War politics and bitter separation, Berlin has bounced back as a hub of tolerance and creativity. Visit the remnants of the notorious Berlin Wall for a sobering Throwback Thursday then equalise with a dose of the city’s contagious night vibes.
The feeling of utter, smug statisfaction and sleepiness that one feels after eating their way through Europe. Common causes include baguettes, cheese, goulash, pasta and crepes.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT AND POTATOES. And lots of cheese. Tempered by years of communist rule, Eastern European cuisine is known for simple, yet hearty comfort food and robust flavours. Start with classics like goulash and borscht; then dig a bit deeper and you’ll find scrumptious street food and plenty of gastronomical glasnost.
Your must-do foodie list includes street stall Lángos in Hungary, stuffing yourself on pierogis (Poland’s response to gyoza) and the best thing since sliced bread: the Smažený Sýr fried cheese sandwich. Czech it out.
FIRST THOUGHT: OMG I’M IN PARIS. Second thought: I’m hungry. Stack up on fresh baguettes, cheese and patés as we kick things off with a gourmet picnic beside the Eiffel Tower.
This is the bread and butter of French cuisine, which means a lot since they pretty much invented cooking. Chomp down some macarons or Instagram yourself eating your first frogs leg. You have arrived.
IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS, YOU’RE IN THE WRONG PLACE. In fact, Italians are still wondering about who this Alfredo guy is and why tourists are asking about him.
Think regional and go to Tuscany to find out what tomatoes really taste like, discover the pizza and pastry scene of Rome and hit up Venice for a primer in risottos, scallops, scampi and cuttlefish. The old rules still apply: avoid English menus, menus with pictures and long menus. Delizioso!
EAT, SLEEP, REPEAT. Food coma is a Spanish institution and no one will sneer at you for taking a well-deserved nap after lunch.
Lick off plates of tapas and Iberian ham in Madrid or hit up Barcelona for epic stacks of freshly caught seafood. If you want to blend in, swap your jug of sangria for a red wine and coke, the best unlikely drink mix to hit the streets since avocado coffee (yep, it’s a thing). Nom nom nom.
