Young Adult Travel Bucket List – European Tour

In my young adult years, it’s my goal to gain as many experiences and learn as much as I can, mostly through travel and whatever path of school and work I will be in. The schools I’ve applied to are nearby so I will be living at home, which will provide me with a good home base without having to have my own place to worry about ( or the added cost of living ) so I can travel more freely. The schools also offer several different programs for travelling abroad:

  • Co-op where you can be hired abroad for a school term and get to work as part of your education.
  • The exchange program where you can take some of your courses at a school abroad.

With the opportunities the school provides and on my own, there are lots of places I’m hoping to explore in my young adult years. This post will be about Europe!


Where to?

I’ve been working on a list that is more in detail but right now I just have a bit figured out.

European tour

First stop – Iceland on the way to Europe.

It seems to be not too uncommon to stop and stay in Reykjavik for a day or 2.

What I would do

  • See around the city
  • Go to the Blue Lagoon Geothermal pool. It’s naturally very warm water and they have places where you can swim in it. Even if I wasn’t swimming, it’s very beautiful.
  • Take an Icelandic pony tour of either the volcanoes or some of the historical sights. Pretty much anywhere just as long as I can ride one of the ponies.


The UK

What I would do

The list for the UK could go on forever, but these are the things I would want to do the most.

  • Explore London, maybe take a bus tour.
  • Go to the baths in Bath.
  • Explore Edinburgh.
  • See some of the major historical sights.
  • Visit Buckingham Palace.



  • Probably bike throughout.
  • Visit some of their cool coffee shops.
  • Explore the city because it looks like a really interesting place.
  • Go to the Van Gogh Museum
  • Visit the Rijksmuseum Library



  • Learn to Salsa dance
  • Visit a colourful market
  • Explore the place

There is so much to see in Italy I would be happy to go anywhere. So far the list is just one thing, though.

  • Spend a day in Rome.



I would probably only want to spend a weekend at most in Athens and that would be it.

  • Take a tour through Acropolis
  • See all of the famous ancient places
  • EAT!


Where would you go in Europe?

    I’ve always dreamed of going to London!! I want to see the British museum and 221B Baker Street and of course all the Harry Potter things.

      Is Baker Street a real thing? I would have to see that, too!

      I’m so bad at planning exciting trips, but I love love love zoos so I would probably want to visit one in each country just to compare.

        It is! It’s actually a Sherlock museum!

          Wow, that’s awesome!

        The zoo thing is a good idea! I’ve accidentally ended up going to aquariums in most places I’ve travelled, so I’m going to try to keep that up. I actually have quite a bad fear of fish, though. 😂

        1. Maria H. Reply

          Oh no! How did you end up at the aquarium if you don’t like fish?

          1. psitsperi Reply

            I don’t know 😂 Aquariums themselves are very calming and cool. It’s a great mystery

      Yes!! I forgot about all the Harry Potter things, definitely have to see those. I think you could spend so much time in London.

          Thank you for the tip! I’ve got to add these to my list

    I’m from the UK and would really recommend going to Liverpool Albert Docks for its historical value and also how there’s so much in one place. There’s food, shops and so much history. London’s great too especially Covent Garden x

      Thank you!! I will have to add those to my list 🙂

    And then when you are a teen, you wish you could travel the whole world and not just Europe. I don’t even have a bucket list. Coz to have a bucket list would mean to jot down the places I want to visit and obviously you cannot write write down the names of 195 countries or the larger number of cities in the world on that score. XD! All I need is adventure and thrill. And as long as I get that, the destination wouldn’t really matter to me. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. psitsperi Reply

      Yes!! There are so many other places that I would like to go and would be open to everywhere but these ones are the must-go places.

      1. charisma Reply

        Then start packing your bags ASAP!! HA HA HA! 🙂 🙂

          Good idea!

    It would be awesome to go to Spain! I got a camera as a present from my mum but I don’t get to use it a lot, only on Homeschooling trips and in the holidays. I also want to go to South Africa, Japan, Canada and Australia.

    1. psitsperi Reply

      Spain has to be the place I want to go to most, especially for the beautiful scenery and taking pictures! Those sound like great places to go, I’m from Canada 😊

    If you are not scared of heights and ever get the chance to come to London, try out the cable cars and visit the Crystal, if you don’t know what that is type The Crystal on google and you, all the info should be there. I went there in at the beginning of December 2017 it was fun, If you want go to my blog type in Another Busy Day on the search and find out what we did.
