“ Planning a Eurotrip? Get some inspiration from our top suggested routes for this year. ”
We know your type. You decide your New Year’s party after the fireworks; you only know what club you’re going to at 2am on Sunday; and you’ve only ever shopped for food on the day you’ve eaten it. You’re totally allergic to plans. And that’s fine. You’re not a FOMO freak, a dreadlocked hippy, or a liquorice-cigarette-smoking Kerouac type. You just like to keep things flexible in case something better comes up. But here’s the thing.
When you travel, it doesn’t hurt to have a teensy-eensy-weensy little peek at plans. You know, just to get an idea of what’s coming. It ensures you don’t end up at the Eiffel Tower, looking at your calendar, and thinking ‘holy smokes, I’m 923 miles away from that preposterously banging festival in Budapest!’
So, to help you out, we thought we’d show you some of the best routes you can do on our Hop-on Hop-off Network. Get inspired by them, rip them off completely, or just keep listening to that Bob Marley tune and do your thing as you go.
HATERS BE HATERS: BARCELONA TO VENICE
You’ll be blocked on Snapchat, unfriended on Facebook, and muted on WhatsApp. But who cares? Because they’re just jealous. Your posting schedule will begin with seafood paellas, Spanish hotties and bohemian beach life. They’ll then progress to cultural city centres and a hundred-thousand Eiffel Tower profile pictures, before getting dark and seedy in the night clubs of Berlin. Your last posts will be dripping with delicious gelato and awe-inspiring canals.
Your photos will be so awesome, you’ll realise that perfect pics are way more important than jealous friends.
SQUIGGLY LINES OF LOVE: VIENNA TO VIENNA VIA SPLIT
Your plan may not be big. They may even make fun of you because of the size of your plan. It doesn’t matter, because this route proves that seriously small packages pack a punch. What’s more is that on this route you’ll head off the beaten track and see some of the best bits of Eastern Europe. There’s mountains, cracking Krakow, and the larger than life city of Venice.
So don't be ashamed of your plan. What matters is what you do with it.
THE WORLD IS YOUR CLASSROOM: PARIS TO FLORENCE
Impress mum and dad, lecturers, school teachers, grandparents and future grandchildren. Because this is a trip that truly tackles European culture. You’ll understand what this whole Renaissance thing is about.
At least, that’s the version of the story you’ll be telling…
YOU GET ENOUGH HOLIDAY DAYS: AMSTERDAM TO AMSTERDAM VIA PRAGUE & PARIS
Show your boss that 30 days a year is actually too many holiday days. Prove that if you had any more days, you’d be so exhausted that you couldn’t actually function on Excel. Cram fun into every crevice on this short European route. It’s Germany, the Czech Republic, France and Amsterdam.
Although you’ve done this within your holiday allowance, it’s probably best to keep your tagged photos tight on the privacy settings. You know what we mean...
