My Travel Bucket List: European Cities

My Travel Bucket List: European Cities

I honestly don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I’ve spent the entire month so far searching through holidays and cities to visit. You’d think I’d won the lottery the way I’m going on. I have to keep reminding myself I’ve only got so much annual leave for the year! Anyone else find themselves obsessed with Holiday Pirates? I just freaking love it.

I have to say it’s really inspiring me to make this year a good’un though. Although, this year was mainly meant to be about saving for a house. I have made peace with the fact I will not be trotting off to New York or Thailand this year and I’m honestly fine with it. As a compromise, I’m just going to take a few cheap city breaks instead!

I’ve whittled it down to just 5 on my bucket list, be interesting to see how many I get ticked off by the end of the year!

1. Prague, Czech Republic.

I mean it just looks so damn pretty. This has been on my wish list for a while now, I’m especially interested in going at Christmas to visit the Christmas Markets. Nothing beats spending a few cold days in December to get yourself festively buzzed for Christmas!

From what I’ve seen, it looks like there is plenty of history and interesting buildings to discover. Sometimes it’s nice to learn a little bit of history rather than playing ignorant to culture, lazing on the beach every day.

Chez Dodo Artisan Macaroon Cafe

Chez Dodo Artisan Macaroon Cafe

So Macaroons always look super cute let’s be honest but as far as the taste goes, they never really got me. Not in the way a Chocolate Brownie or Crumble does at least. That was until I ventured into a sweet little cafe in the capital of Budapest, called Chez Dodo.

There’s a reason it’s the number 1 bakery in Budapest on Tripadvisor. Those bitches ain’t lying – not for one second.

Let me tell you why these little Macaroons deserve a blog post all to themselves..

3 Nights in Budapest

3 Nights in Budapest

There’s nothing I like more than an excuse to take a little annual leave from the full time job. Working through Christmas is always an exasperating task, so knowing I had a short city break the other side made it all that much more bearable. *I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.”

January seemed to be the cheapest month to visit Budapest and i’m all about that bargain life. So, it was really a no-brainer when the flights only cost £50 return!

I decided against a hotel and managed to find an amazing apartment off Airbnb for only £30 a night. (FYI, I’m totally obsessing with Airbnb at the moment! I’m still overly cautious of how likely getting murdered is, I mean you are staying in someone’s house you don’t know for Christ’s sake! But I thought I’d take my chances for a price that cheap!)

Here’s what we got up to..
