Men’s Travel Bucket List
A special type of bucket list: As a man it is your duty to visit these 9 European cities before you cash in for good.
We’re starting our travel bucket list with an all-time classic: be it because of the legal (read: tolerated) Marihuana purchase or the world-renowned red light district that is safe after sundown Amsterdam is every adolescent man’s dream – if you are no older than 19, that is. Soon enough ‘Getting high’ will get old and real women will prove themselves more interesting than the stale exhibition of Amsterdam’s Sexmuseum.
A maybe for the more mature traveler, Amsterdam remains a must for all youngsters.
This city isn’t called The Wonderful for nothing. Not only geographically located in between East and West, Budapest combines the best of both worlds in every aspect. In one word, Budapest is the ultimate compromise between Western professionalism and the Eastern European craze of more appealing women and a lower cost of living. No wonder the city is so popular with Western expats and travelers.
A definite must-see destination.
How about partying in the same club where the Beatles played their first gig?
Yup, t’was in Hamburg, not in Liverpool. Germany’s second largest city is known for its spread-out nightlife area Reeperbahn where clubs, bars and concert venues blend in with one of Europe’s largest red-light districts. Also home to Europe’s second largest harbor after Rotterdam the annual Hafengeburtstag (‘port’s birthday’) attracts more than 1 million visitors.
The most underrated European metropolis ever. While actually being a perfectly safe city it is Ukraine’s edginess that helps prevent the obvious hipster invasion from the West. If it wasn’t for protests and conflicts the city would be an El Dorado of Starbucks Cafes by now. Mind you that the stress, in any case, is on ‘would’: Instead of Starbucks and cupcake stores the Kiev of today brings you a decent city beach as well as nightclubs where women constantly outnumber men.
A must for any man’s travel bucket list.
