I had the privelege of making a dream come true and backpacking through Europe for 45 days in the summer of 2012 with my good friend, Alyssa. We got to visit 13 different countries in that time. I was often asked, “what was your favorite place?” – to which I never had an answer to. I had so many different places I loved for different reasons. Instead, I’ve narrowed it down to the 5 European cities you must visit, if you’ve never been to Europe before.
