The greatest advantage of living in London is having Europe at your doorstop. I have been living abroad for 10months and although i have been lucky enough to travel often, my bucketlist continues to grow (not shrink).
Today, i added three new places to my list of ‘MUST VISIT in Europe’. I want to share these three places with you, incase you were unaware of their existence and to inspire you to search beyond the popular European destinations..
1. Navagio Beach, Greece The combination of the clear turquoise water + beautiful white sand, makes this place one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe ( in my opinion ). In the past, when i was to hear the word ‘Greece’, i pictured the uniform white and blue buildings and destinations like Santorini, Mykonos and Ios… Now, my mind drifts to the island of Zakynthos, where this beautiful beach is hidden.
2. The trolls tongue, Norway The ledge that hovers about 2,300 feet above the lake below, The trolls tongue. This beautiful, picture perfect place is located in Norway and is a 10hour (return) hike from Skjeggedal. Travellers suggest that journey to Trolls tongue is to be made by ‘experienced hikers’ only, challenge accepted.
3. Plitvice lakes, Croatia My favourite of the three, by far. This incredible national park & series of 7 lakes has me completely mesmerised. Located 2hours from Zagar, Croatia & available to public 11hours per day. I am forever mesmerised by the impeccable beauty of such formless things.
