I’m not one of those people who likes to set travel goals. I feel like trying to count one’s travels is akin to making them like a work project; it takes all of the fun and spontaneity out of it. However, I recently found myself setting the goal of visiting all of the capitals in Europe before I turn 30.
I don’t know why I changed my mind about goal-oriented travelling. Maybe because the winter and my work situation have made it feel like I haven’t travelled in months and that I NEED a little break. Maybe because, heck, I’ve already visited a fair number of capitals (and live in one, oh hey Paris). Or maybe because I absolutely love Europe and because I feel like it’s a worthwhile undertaking.
In any case, the goal has been set, and while I don’t have any immediate plans to check another city off my list, I’m confident that my future plans will permit me to achieve this little project of mine.
To motivate myself, I thought I’d do a little summary of the capitals I’ve visited. So, here it goes…(in order of first visited to most recently visited)
