Marteen and Brittaney form Lust For The World are two 20 somethings trying to live the dream while maintaining a 9-5 to pay the bills (until they have the freedom to go rogue). Their message is to prove that it is possible to travel the world while your young, earning an entry level salary, and working 40 hours a week. Here’are the 5 quaint cities in Europe they’re obsessed with:
1. Cinque Terre, Italy
Set on the rugged coast of the Italian Riviera, lies an enchanting town made up of five colorful villages overlooking the hillside. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside, which add to the allure Cinque Terre.
A few hours away from Prague lays the colorful fairytale land of Cesky Krumlov. The town is known for its picturesque appearance, a magically decorated castle perching high above the labyrinth-like town.
3. Segovia, Spain
Segovia is one of the many smaller towns outside of Madrid that gets overshadowed (Avila and Toledo are also worth a mention). Declared as a world heritage site by UNESCO, Segovia is most famous for the Alcazar of Segovia and the Segovia Cathedral. There is also a large aqueduct that lines its entrance.
Travelers can’t seem to get enough of Salzburg’s medieval style and story book appearance, as it is climbing the ranks to be one of Europe’s more popular cities. One large demanding fortress with an alpine backdrop sets Salzburg apart from other destinations, attracting more and more tourists every year.
5. Lake Lucerne
Lake Lucerne is a charming town set in the middle of a Nature lover’s dream. Hike Mount Pilatus or Mount Rigi during the day, or enjoy a cruise on a lake surrounded by the Swiss Alps. You couldn’t ask for better scenery, or better cheese fondue.
