Nothing beats that old world charm of Europe with its majestic ancient buildings and museums full of wonders. I have many favorite places all over Europe. Here are some iconic images from some of them.
When I think of Portugal holidays, unlike most travelers, I think of the bucolic relaxation of Sintra.
In Spain, I´d have to choose Valencia, because I fell in love with the place while I was studying there, though I am pretty sure that I the same thing will happen whenever I visit the Basque country.
Those gondola rides, they are everything you ever imagined, and more. My time in Venice was the closest I will ever be to living inside a fairy-tale.
Paris was not my favorite place in the world when I was there, but I have learnt to love it from afar, since, and I am pretty sure our next encounter will be the charm.
Berlin and Dublin are two cities I´ve always known I would love to live in, although I have never seen either of them.
Though I speak German, I have never been to Germany, and when I go there, Berlin will undoubtedly be my first stop.
I have read and written so much about Dublin that I could find my way around it even if I was blindfolded, but alas, the land of Joyce and me, we have never met. Whenever it happens, I am sure it will be a moment to remember.
