Unlike most people, I haven’t seen the “go-to” European countries like the UK, or Italy. I’ve gone to the more unexpected ones like Norway, Germany and even Greece and I got a taste of what it’s like in these countries. I’ve loved all my trips there so far, and maybe in the future, I’ll finally visit those iconic and traditional European places. But to the places I’ve been, they’re all pretty amazing. And I want to share with you some of them.
A bench in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Much like “The Fault in Our Stars”, I sat on a simple green bench looking out at the water, while a boat with couples smiling and laughing at each other passes by. Sitting there with your Jungle Fever Foldable Backpack and allowing the city to go on as you stay there and watch it go by. There’s just something so vibrant about the city, about how people are youthful and excited, and like most European cities, very free to do what they want. The people around are just full of life, with green and red lights glinting in the background signifying there is a lot of the city you can explore.
A rock near the Parthenon in Athens, Greece
Okay, this may seem a little vague, but the road going to the Parthenon is full of rocks, just like a how a lot of preserved places are. Don’t get me wrong, the Parthenon is gorgeous, and when you’re there, it feels like you are part of a postcard. It feels surreal, being there with the city of Athens beneath your feet. Greece is a country that is rich with culture and tradition, starting from the days that the stuff of Greek mythology talk about. Being there makes you want to pick up a book about the Greek gods and ponder on the ideas of the past.
No particular place this time. Just the city in general. What attracts me about this city is the riveting history. Although a part of Germany’s history is desolate and bleak, and they are still trying to fix everything that’s been broken, it’s amazing to see where they are now from where they’ve come from. Touring the city, you’ll see that even the little things hold much importance. Something as simple as a parking lot holds so much history. The Berlin wall brings the city to life and the distinct, vibrant colors bring life to a city that was once filled with despair.
There is so much to explore and so much to learn from all the countries I’ve been to and more. I wish I could tell you more stories, but you’ll have to go there yourselves and I promise, it will be worth it.
