30 places on my European wish list

I love reading and writing lists, I'm secretly hoping Buzzfeed will see mine one day and try poach me for a job. Hey, dreams are free! 

This blog is going to have a lot of posts from my old travels for until I can afford to do more, but for this post I've decided to go in the opposite direction and make a list of the many places I want to visit in Europe. I'm calling it a wishlist because the thought of creating a bucket list is pretty morbid, and I'm perfectly healthy. I'm so keen to travel to Europe again, I visited for 3 weeks in 2014 and barely scratched the surface.

Thinking about all the places I want to go is driving me to the brink of insanity! I guess that's why I find it really therapeutic (and slightly frustrating) to write down where I want to go and figure out how I'll get there one day. 

If I were to write out my entire wishlist, it would take me a very long time. So here are the top 30 places I want to visit in this life (preferably in the next 5 years):

1. Lapland or Iceland to see Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)

2. Reykjavik's Blue Lagoon

3. The Little Mermaid statue in Denmark

4. The Palace of Versailles in France

I have already visited London, Paris, Amsterdam, Bruges, Swiss Alps, Munich and Venice so if there is something glaringly obvious places missing off this list I might've already been there, or they'll be further down my huge list.

Do you have a must-see part of Europe that I failed to mention? Please let me know, I'd love to see it!
