European Bucket List

European Bucket List

Europe is where my heart is. During my yachting days I saw a lot of it by boat, and spent several summers cruising around the Med. But there is so much more that I still have left to see in Europe and so many experiences to be had.

This bucket list combines things I have already done with things yet to do, so is the perfect tool for someone who is planning their European adventure!

This list is continually being updated as I discover new adventures to be had. If you have any suggestions for me, please feel free to comment below or message me.
