European bucket list: friends edition

Stripes Europe

As nice as it is to be able to travel around Europe with your significant other or family, sometimes, we all need to take a little getaway with someone other than them. Whether it’s your best friend from your hometown coming to visit or someone you just met, going on a trip with friends can make unforgettable memories. Below are some bucket-list ideas for the perfect getaway.

For the Ladies

  1. Shop the streets of Paris for haute couture.
  2. See a Broadway show in London.
  3. Suntan the day away on the beaches in Santorini. The backdrop also makes perfect selfies for you and your girlfriends.
  4. Pamper yourselves with a spa day or weekend. Switzerland is known for having great spas.
  5. Get your hands on Polish pottery in Bolesławiec.

For the Gentlemen

  1. Drink a pint—or more—of Guinness at the pubs in Ireland.
  2. See what the buzz is all about in Amsterdam.
  3. Hike up the GR20 in Corsica but be sure to bring a rucksack.
  4. Bring your GoPro and film your adventures at Area 47 in Tyrol.
  5. Hit a hole-in-one in the Algarve, which is rated as one of the top golfing destinations.

For Both

  1. Party from sunrise to sundown in Ibiza.
  2. Become humbled at American monuments in France, Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom.
  3. Witness the amazing Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, in the Nordic countries.
  4. Unleash your wild side during Yacht Week—a weeklong yacht trip that has locations in Croatia, Greece, Italy and Montenegro.
  5. Be adventurous and head out to the Balkan region, which consists of countries such as Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia and Montenegro to name a few.
