Looking back on the trip, two weeks wasn’t enough time for me to explore six different cities. Next time, I’ll plan for fewer destinations to spend more time in each place.
I wanted to spend my trip seeing as much of Europe as possible. Since I was going for two weeks, I thought one or two nights in each city would help me make the most of my trip by allowing me to see a variety of places in a short time.
But instead, I found myself wishing I visited fewer locations and spent more time each place.
From stunning architecture to rich histories, these cities impressed me upon arrival. With less than 48 hours to explore each destination, I was only able to hit the top tourist highlights, like the Colosseum in Rome.
I didn’t have a chance to dive deeper into what life in each city was really like. If I had more time, I would have cruised on Lake Zürich, shopped in Milan, or gone to a night club in Berlin.
Next time I’m only traveling to Europe for two weeks, I’ll pick a couple of cities, say Berlin and Vienna, and spend a full week immersing myself in their art scenes, night life, local cuisine, and history.
