2015 has been a massive year for me. My boyfriend and I packed up all our belongings, sold what we didn’t need and moved to Europe! The year has included so much travel and I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to have so many new experiences. I visited over 10 countries this year and so this post is going to share with you the 5 best places I visited in 2015.
Berlin was lucky enough to be my home for several months this year. The city is full of so much history and culture and I’m missing it terribly right now! Each neighborhood has its own vibe and the museums are fascinating, they tell a special story about the tragedies that have befallen this country. The highlight to living in Berlin was the history that was behind it, and seeing how that history has shaped the city today.
Wengen is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in my life. I love it even more as it has opened up the world of hiking to me, which I have fallen in love with after taking a very long (and steep) hike through the hills surrounding Wengen. We visited in spring time, however any time of year is great to visit as in winter, you can use the town as a base for skiing!
Visiting Norway was a birthday surprise and one of the highlights of my year! Hiking in -5 degrees Celsius was challenging, but worth it. The views over Bergen from Mount Ulriken were magical. Touring the Fjords was also equally magical, and I can’t wait to go and explore more of Scandinavia next summer.
Dubrovnik is a home away from home for me as this is the city where my father was born. I have visited the city of many occasions but its beauty and history never cease to amaze me. If you are planning on only visiting one city in Croatia, then make it Dubrovnik. The photo I have chosen to represent it says it all.
If you only have one day in Paris (although I can’t imagine why on earth you would schedule only one day there), spend a few hours strolling the streets on Montmartre, Paris’s 18th arrondissement. It doesn’t get more French than that.
