A European Bucket List

I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.

A European Bucket List | Chasing Krista | Europe

One of my favorite views is out the window of a plane. Normally because that means I got the window seat & I get to take a nap. But most importantly because when you fly above the clouds it puts life in a different perspective. Whether you are going to a new city to explore or returning home.
The look out of that window always means adventure to me.

  1. This is such a good list – so inspiring! I love the idea of visiting Delirium Brewery while in Belgium! To add, once you try the waffles in Belgium, you’ll never be satisfied with a waffle from anywhere else! 🙂
