Convince where to go next!

Jump to last reply

I've been overseas 7 times (well, 8 times, but once was being born in Denmark, and I don't remember any of it!). I've played it safe so far, always traveling to English speaking places - Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland.

Now, I want to start planning a trip to the rest of Europe. Convince me where I should go! :P

I have such a long list of places I want to see, I cannot choose. So I turn to the community who, with snark and poetry, has been around for me in the past :)

I love charming villages, good food, stunning landscapes, ruins of all types. I take photographs and sell them. Not much into shopping or nightlife (though I love pubs). I like meeting people and people watching. I love architecture and most older art. I love finding hidden spots - sacred wells, wishing trees, standing stones, etc. Unusual places, like the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge.

Some of the places on my bucket list have been... Greece for the ancient ruins, Rome for the same reason and the art, Venice, Provence, Cinque Terre, Denmark, the fjords, Iceland, Istanbul. While the only language I speak relatively well (other than English) is Spanish, Spain is rather far down my list.
