Your Ultimate Guide To Festivals, Volunteering And Where To Go For Europe 2019 | ISIC Australia
The annual European Summertime is fast approaching. Read on for our comprehensive guide to this glorious time in the fabulous continent of Europe.
When we're saturated in Mediterranean sunlight while drenched in turquoise calm waters, we know we're loving life in the midst of a European summer. Who could blame you too? This is the time when Europe and its fabulous people come alive. In what can only be described as a mass coming-together following a period of hibernation through brutal winters each year, the arrival of sun, sea and jealous folk from the Southern Hemisphere is best seen to be believed.
We've put together below some key dates for the festivals, marathons and destinations you need to know about in 2019!
Destinations to visit during the 2019 European Summer
The places we visit when we travel are changing. We're progressively looking for something different, and a little off the beaten track. These below destinations reflect this mindset.
Switzerland without the price-tag. Bordering Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia, Slovenia has come about fantastically since the relatively recent breakup of Yugoslavia.
Balearic vibes without the busloads upon busloads of British tourists. If you want to party, go to Ibiza, if you want a bit of everything, go to Menorca!
No darkness in the Summer! They call this place 'The Paris of the North', we'll leave that for you to decide on yourself!
Not quite Scandinavia, not quite Eastern Bloc. Finding itself along the Baltic Sea, Estonia will grant you many of Scandinavian dreams, just without the price-tag.
Size isn't everything! This landlocked principality might be home to just under 40,000 people, however it well and truly packs some impressive sights into its 25km long border.
Worth a visit every time Summer rolls around in Europe, the Greek Islands and their incredible beauty are no secret!
