Tripoto

Travelling to Europe is not just an adventure but a rite of passage. The same way every 20-year-old dreams of taking a bike trip to Ladakh or a Dil Chahta Hai-esque trip to Goa, a vacation in Europe is also on every millennial's bucket list. The reasons for traveling to Europe are endless. Centuries of history, diverse culture and endless natural beauty draw you in as much as the delicious cuisine, the welcoming smile of locals and the myriad of sights and wonders to see.

Everyone has their own reasons to visit it, but there is one common thing that will make for a better Europe vacation. Seeing this dream destination with like-minded people.

Thanks to the unpredictable weather and rains that come down anytime in London, it is no surprise that sunny days here are celebrated like the first monsoon rainfall in India. It's amazing to see how, as soon as the sun is out, Londoners grab beers and classic peanut butter sandwiches and head on famous parks such as Hyde Park to chill under the summer sun! Trust me, drinking an ice cold beer under a shining sun, is a moment that is not easily recreated. As Indians, we are used to hiding from the sun, so this opportunity to embrace a sunny day is a must-have experience in life.

Who hasn't heard of Amsterdam? Even our parents were introduced to this charming city with the iconic movie, Queen. The city is known for cyclists, canals and their coffee shops! While the place has a laid-back vibe, its people are fitness enthusiasts. Visit Amsterdam, because where else in the world can you lazily move from one lane to another, eat french fries decked with mayo on the banks of a canal, and gobble up as many brownies as you can! And when it comes to the special coffeeshops of Amsterdam, it's as unique an experience as you can imagine. The interiors range from dark and dingy to bright and colourful. You have a dedicated menu to different kinds of marijuana offered and they also have experts that can suggest and recommend what you can try, specially if you are a first-timer. And even if you are not there to indulge or even try, just sit in one shop, order some shake or drink and observe how people get their 'high' on!

Know more about experiencing the coffeeshop culture of Amsterdam and other European wonders. And guess what, you get 20% off if you book this amazing tour before 31st May!

With 1,200 years of history, totemic UNESCO sites and many exciting bars, Krakow is a city that survived while Warsaw was being razed to the ground during World War 2. As a result, it has historic architecture, delicious culinary trails, more bars per square meter than any other town in Europe and a city where the old tell you stories of the world war and the young take you out for craft beers and red blood sausages! Krakow is less touristy, but more vibrant than the Polish capital of Warsaw, and definitely a must-visit while in Europe.

The ruin bars of Budapest are the hippest party trend in all of Europe. Built in the ruins of abandoned buildings or stores, these clubs and bars are a splendid reflection of reanimating a forgotten area of a city. The old Jewish quarter (district 7) was abandoned to turn into dust after WW2, but around a decade and a half ago, one brilliant entrepreneur converted an abandoned warehouse into the now mecca of Budapest's ruin bars, Szimpla Kert. From clubs that open at 5 in the evening to the ones that close at 5 in the morning, ruin bars in Budapest are an experience you will savour for the rest of your life.

Whether it's wandering through the 2,000-year-old architectural wonders of Barcelona or snacking on some tasty oysters at a seaside cafe in San Sebastian, Spain never fails to enchant. Barcelona's colourful art and architecture, elite dining scenes and buzzing nightlife are exciting reasons for any 20-something to visit this city. And San Sebastian's rustic charm, sun-soaked beaches and fresh seafood make it an alluring place that you can't ignore. The city rush of Barcelona is invigorating, and the calm vibe of San Sebastian is addictive. These two cities offer you a creative look into the diverse cultures of Spain and ensure that no matter how much time you spend here, this country will keep surprising you at every corner.

To walk on quintessentially European streets and feel like you are on top of the world at Prague Castle

You know that feeling when you are standing on top of a mountain and can see the entire valley dotted with small villages here and there? It really does feel like you are on top of the world! Well, standing on the top-most stair of Prague Castle courtyard and looking down on the city, with red-roof houses spread out as far as the eye can see, is a similar feeling. Prague transports you back in time to an era when apothecaries and magic were common terms and you went to exciting little joints to get a drink. Horse-drawn carts are still a common sight in Prague and the quintessential cobbled streets of Europe are everywhere here. Admire the views, cruise the Vltava river and walk across the historically-rich Charles Bridge. I guarantee that a few days in this city will make you fall in love with art and history.

Sun-lit vineyards dotting the landscapes stand in stark contrast to Bordeaux's restored neoclassical architecture and striking new buildings. Coffee shops, food trucks, fine-dining and more wine than you can possibly drink, Bordeaux is inarguably France's most dynamic city. Half the city is UNESCO-listed so all your history and culture cravings are taken care of and its high-spirited student population ensures that the vibe of the city remains trendy and hip! It's here where you can learn all about tasting and appreciating a good glass of wine, while you stroll around admiring a scintillating mix of classical and modern architecture.
