I'm going to be traveling to Europe with some friends next summer and it would be cool to have suggestions on where to visit. They're just going to visit Portugal but I would like to stay longer and visit other countries on my own. Does anybody have any suggestions for places to visit?
I would be more than willing to meet traveling companions I could meet up and say hello to as I make my way around too. Lemme know if anyone is interested in this. Murderers and serial killers need not apply. Only cool people who wouldn't mind giving my suggestions or showing me around their neck of the woods.

Go to the Netherlands 🌌 we have awesome people. I don't think my parents would be okay with me meeting a almost 30 year old guy I met through the internet though...
Places to see. Hmm, I'll give you some non-obvious suggestions.
- Croatia. It's amazingly beautiful. Not only nature but also the cities are great. Country is very underrated.
- Italy, Milan and Venice are great. Although Venice is totally PACKED with tourists in the summer
- Czech Republic. Prague is a beautiful city
- Bulgaria. My dad recommends this. He says it's pretty much the most beautiful country of Europe. Together with Norway.
- Norway. Nature is amazing
- Turkey. Istanbul is an amazing cultural city and the Turks are very friendly.
- Switzerland or Austria. Salzburg is beautiful.
- Brussel in Belgium. Basically only Brussel is nice in Belgium but it's a great city.
- München or Limburg an lahn.
- The Netherlands ofcourse. Go to Amsterdam, Haarlem, Utrecht or Den Haag.
by the way I go to Portugal every year. Lisbon is kinda nice (don't get pickpocketed though) and Porto. Other than that nothing really. Nature is kinda boring and the whole country is kind of a mess.1

Wales. If you liked Lord of the Rings, go visit Wales. Go see the castles of Edward I. The castles in Wales are pure weapons-grade bitchin. They are not "pretty". They are not ornamental Sleeping Beauty castles (like many castles in Europe). They are growling, snarling, grim faced fortresses of war, often with very bloody histories.
The nearby Yorkshire Dales are like the Shire. Quaint and friendly with rolling hills and ancient hedgerows, it's a beautiful land with a collection of barns and inns that are often older than the United States.2
