51 Photos of Europe from 6 Months of Travel
The beautiful architecture, history, and different cultures of Europe have interested me since I was a kid. This was the destination of my first trip abroad and I keep finding new reasons to visit. Usually those reasons start with a few great photos of Europe, perhaps of somewhere I haven’t been yet.
This time around I spent 6 month and visited more than 20 countries. Having already done much of the western portion, I started in the north and headed throughout the central and eastern regions. First, I saw landscapes in Iceland that looked like scenes out of a sci-fi film. Later, I learned about local culture while couchsurfing in a small village in Estonia. I was even taught how to say Cheers! in more than a dozen new languages.
I did my best to take in the beauty of each place I visited. Here are some of my favorite photos.
Beautiful and wild, Iceland remains one of the most incredible places I’ve seen. Waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers, the midnight sun in the summer months, Aurora Borealis in the winter. Iceland has it all and more.
Still off the beaten path for many travelers to Europe, Estonia offers beautiful buildings, a great nightlife, friendly locals, and great food.

I’m currently sitting in a hostel in New Zealand, sipping hot tea on a rainy day. My journey around the world started in Europe and is nearing its end. Each of these photos of Europe holds a special story. Looking back at them now sparks a thought that puts me back in the moment. Perhaps it was an adventure with a new friend, a view that took my breath away, or a humbling experience getting lost or failing to understand the local language.
Each experience, each image, taught me something and helped me to grow.

As always, thanks for reading.
Terviseks! (Cheers in Estonian)
