Escape with Absolutely Lucy on a European adventure. Whether it’s a weekend city break, a long summer holiday or perhaps even an epic road trip or Interrail. Get off the beaten track in Slovenia or explore alpine lakes in Austria and Switzerland. Get away from the crowds and visit Liechtenstein and tick off the 6th smallest country in the world. Summer holiday in Malta, Greece, Italy or Portugal and top up that tan. Or head to Ibiza and dance until the sun comes up. I’ve got everything from European music festivals to travelling by campervan to hotel hopping from city to city. There are so many amazing options when travelling Europe and it’s the perfect place for a solo female travel adventure.
Even after Brexit, we are so lucky to have Europe right on our doorstep. Its vibrant cities, endless coastline and beautiful countryside means there’s a travel option to suit all. The availability of budget flights and (if you shop around) great purse-friendly accommodations to suit every budget. Over the years I’ve backpacked across Europe, road tripped and camped wild, I’ve also enjoyed weekend city breaks in Europe and longer holidays and trips with family, friends and partners. It’s a great place to travel solo or with the ones you love, experiencing a myriad of different cultures and foods along the way.
Some of my favourite things to do in Europe include road trips across Europe, wine tours in Italy and Christmas markets in Germany. Book city breaks in Prague, Milan, Bucharest, or plan lazy summer holidays on the beaches of Greece, Portugal and Montenegro. A highlight was visiting Liechtenstein – the 6th smallest country and exploring the Eastern European countryside. I’ll never forget camping by lakes and mountains in Austria and Switzerland and visiting spectacular national parks in Germany. And of course, we can’t forget European music festivals.
