Europe PhotoDiary

Hey guys!

I had the amazing opportunity to visit Europe a couple of weeks ago (If you follow me on social media  you probably know this already- if you don’ t please do- Instagram Facebook )  and I thought I should share some pictures here. We visited the Netherlands, Germany and France and spent a couple of hours in Switzerland.  All the cities we visited are picturesque.  Mentally planning a backpacking trip through Europe right now- money come my way.

Enjoy the pictures and I hope they inspire you to book a trip to these countries.

Tastiest fries I’ve had! Maybe it’s the chilling cold at 3 am or maybe they’re just tasty? I don’t know but you have to try them if you’ re in Amsterdam.

Fun Fact: Amsterdam has more than 100 kilometres of canals- that is about 90 islands and 1500 bridges!

Bucket list: Amsterdam

Out  of all the cities we visited Strasbourg remains my favourite.  Some of the streets and buildings were so full of character. What blew my mind was the Strasbourg Cathedral. Imagine walking on a street, gazing at the busy shops, cute cafes, ice cream stalls and creperies and for a moment there you hear your stomach grumble to which you patiently ignore, trying not to stare at the artists sketching away caricatures at the same time trying to follow the sound of beautiful sound of music and right there standing majestically in front of you is a huge gothic church.

You take a moment or two to take it all in, resisting the urge to take a photo because it could not possibly match the image in your eyes. Finally it all sinks in and you pick your jaw that was fallen minutes ago as you strike a pose or twenty to remind you of the moment a building took your breath away.

Zurich, Switzerland

We spent the last hours of our trip in Zurich. It was a beautiful and sunny Sunday and the whole city seemed to be out and about. We hang around the scenic Lake Zurich soaking in the sun and enjoying distant views of the Swiss Alps.

While walking around, we saw a ferris wheel and we definitely could not pass an opportunity to go for the ride that has the best views of the city and lake.

We went on another ride which managed to make up the best and worst minutes of my week. It does not look like much but TRUST ME guys, the ride was a mix of adrenaline, screaming, fear, laughter and uncertainty. It was scary but fun- The first time.  The second time was a bit much- longest minutes of my life.

This ride should be called The Underdog
