Erlangen is another one of those European cities that simply steals your heart. Although, yes, they all seem to have their charm, but what really stands out here is the Bergkirchweih, the largest beer festival I’ve experienced so far! I’ve already been twice and plan to keep going – it’s awesome!🍺🎡

Rock im Park!

Nuremberg, one of my favorite cities, marked the beginning of my new life in Europe. I was fascinated by its old town surrounded by a medieval wall and its connection to the Nazi regime, especially the Palace of Justice, where the famous trials took place. Now, while it’s sad to remember what happened, it comforts me to know that the palace is used for cultural events such as concerts, like the amazing Rock im Park.🏰🎶

A day in Munich

Lastly, Munich, a city brimming with life and movement. Its impressive architecture, parks, museums, and wide variety of breweries make it an unmissable destination. I regret missing Oktoberfest, but I’ll definitely go soon!🍻🎪

Hungarian food is truly tasty, as well as their desserts. But what surprised me the most was taking the night cruise on the Danube River.

Definitely, its landscapes are dreamlike, from the breathtaking Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald to the charming Interlaken and glamorous St. Moritz. And we can’t forget the majestic Matterhorn, which seems to be taken from a fairy tale. In addition, its lakes, such as Lausanne, Locarno, Neuchâtel, Sursee, Zurich, Zug, St. Gallen, and Lucerne, among others, are simply incomparable in their natural beauty.🏔️🏞️

Grindelwald, a landscape come to life

And Swiss cities are like something out of a postcard, with their unique charm and impeccable architecture. The only place I can think of that could compare to Switzerland is New Zealand, two natural beauties in such distant yet equally impressive locations. Without a doubt, Switzerland is a destination that leaves an indelible mark on all those fortunate enough to visit.🏔️


While I was here, I also had the opportunity to visit Liechtenstein, and it’s almost as if you haven’t left Switzerland. Everything maintains the same order and prices (ha, ha!), and the nature is equally charming. But still, it’s worth marking another destination on your map and exploring this small and charming principality.


Big Ben in its splendor

London left me completely impressed; it’s an incredibly cosmopolitan and lively city. Everything seems to be in constant motion and in perfect order, though yes, it’s a bit pricey, but it was definitely worth every penny spent visiting it. From the imposing presence of Big Ben and the majestic Buckingham Palace to the iconic London Eye observation wheel and the impressive Tower Bridge, London has so many iconic places to visit.🏰🎡

Carriage Rides through the City

So! When my dad and some friends came to visit, we decided to take a trip to Krakow. And let me tell you, the old town is absolutely stunning. It feels like stepping back in time with its cobblestone streets and charming buildings.🏰🚶‍♂️

Krakow is impressively well-organized, and one highlight was taking carriage rides through the city streets, which felt like a royal experience.🐴👑

Delicious Goulash

The nightlife scene is also vibrant, with plenty of bars and pubs to keep you entertained until the early hours.🎶🍻

And the food! We indulged in some delicious goulash that was simply fantastic, and Krakow is filled with lovely parks like Planty Park where you can relax and enjoy the outdoors.🍲🌳

Obwarzanek Krakowski, traditional breadt

But amidst all the fun, we also made a somber visit to Auschwitz. The history there is incredibly tragic, and it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed by the sorrow and suffering. It’s a sobering experience that really makes you reflect on the human condition. 🕊️😔

I think that pretty much sums up my experience in Europe initially. Lots of history, beautiful cities, and tourist attractions everywhere. Plus, there’s a lot of peace and tranquility, and it’s easy to get around from one place to another. It truly is a blessing to live on this continent, as you have everything at your fingertips.🌟🌍
