Bucket lists. Hate them or love them, we all have some sort of a list we want to tick off! There are just so many destinations to see, and so many things to do, taste and experience in Europe, let alone the world.

We often get asked, “what is that one thing I absolutely MUST DO when in destination x, y and z?” Of all the gorgeous things there are to see in Europe, some of them stand out above the rest. We’ve listed some of the top affordable things you should do when travelling to top destinations around Europe.
