5 Great European Party Cities for Adventurous Souls

5 Great European Party Cities for Adventurous Souls

Have you been feeling adventurous lately? Well, if you’re up for parties, you should know that some people – like me for example – take partying quite seriously. Sure, it’s a lot of fun when things happen spontaneously and your friends and you all end up having a great time, with a great story to tell others. However, if you want to go to a real adventure, it will require some planning.

Fortunately, Europe is filled with hot partying spots and there’s a lot – and I do mean a lot – to choose from. But, if you decide to go with the flow and visit the first place you see, you might not like it at all. Besides, it’s not like traveling is cheap, so you need to do some research first. With that in mind, let’s look at some of the best party cities in Europe.

1. Amsterdam

Amsterdam

    This notoriously wild city is definitely a place to start. Other than being environmentally friendly and having magnificent sightseeing spots, Amsterdam is widely known for its diversity when it comes to music. So, whether you’re a fan of jazz, electro or rock music, you’ll be able to find amazing events there. The great thing is that this city is ready to party every day of the week, so you can be positive you won’t get bored even for a second.

    Considering the fact that laws function a bit differently there, you need to be prepared. For starters, you shouldn’t take “candy” from strangers on the street – everything you could possibly want can be found in official shops. Naturally, you should know a thing or two about marijuana before you get there, because there are so many myths and false information on this subject.

    2. Berlin

      People who say that New York is the city that never sleeps obviously never visited Berlin. These people simply don’t know what being tired feels like and their enthusiasm for clubbing will rub off on you the minute you get there.

      Berlin is the epicenter of the techno and house music scene, so get ready to visit the world’s best clubs and listen to some of the most talented DJs in the world. You should also know that December is the best time of the year to be there, but you definitely won’t regret visiting Berlin any other time of the year.

      3. Prague

        This beautiful city offers the full nightlife package. Prague has cave bars, rooftop clubs, beer houses and dive pubs, and each of them is amazingly designed. Probably the best thing about clubbing in Prague is that it’s not expensive. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not cheap, but it’s far less expensive than the previous two cities I mentioned. One other thing – people there are really pleasant and talkative, so you’ll be properly welcomed.

        4. Barcelona

          If you’re searching for a party city that also offers great food, amazing sightseeing spots and diverse culture, you should look no further, especially if Berlin sounds too hardcore to you. In Barcelona, you’ll be able to enjoy themed nights, street performers and professional entertainers, so it’s eye candy everywhere you look, really.

          Staying in Barcelona is a true pleasure – you can rent a cozy apartment there, enjoy their sunny beaches and simply relax. They have many amazing spots that will enable you to recharge your batteries and unwind after a long party night, which makes it the perfect vacation spot.

          5. Ibiza

          Ibiza

            I saved the best one for last. This island is all about the parties and not a single place on earth can provide better partying conditions than Ibiza, and this has been a standing fact for years now. There are music bars, boat parties and club events with elite DJs and performers, so you really can’t make a mistake if you decide to visit this island. It’s like the whole place is just one enormous club.

            You’ll be seduced by the magic of Ibiza right away, so don’t get all surprised if you wake up on a beach one morning and have no recollection of how you got there. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.

            With this list we have just scratched the surface. There are so many amazing party spots that will feel like home – better, in fact – for all adventurous souls out there.

            One last piece of advice – you should check all the prices before you pick a destination, so that you’ll know what to expect. Partying isn’t cheap or easy, so you need to be smart and prepare well.

            Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

            Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

            In Personal Development-speak, we are always talking about goals, outcomes, success, desires and dreams. In other words, all the stuff we want to do, achieve and create in our world.

            And while it’s important for us to know what we want to achieve (our goal), it’s also important for us to understand why we want to achieve it; the reason behind the goal or some would say, our real goal.

            Why is goal setting important?

            1. Your needs and desire will be fulfilled.

            Sometimes when we explore our “why”, (why we want to achieve a certain thing) we realize that our “what” (our goal) might not actually deliver us the thing (feeling, emotion, internal state) we’re really seeking.

            For example, the person who has a goal to lose weight in the belief that weight loss will bring them happiness, security, fulfillment, attention, popularity and the partner of their dreams. In this instance, their “what” is weight-loss and their “why” is happiness (etc.) and a partner.

            Six months later, they have lost the weight (achieved their goal) but as is often the case, they’re not happier, not more secure, not more confident, not more fulfilled and in keeping with their miserable state, they have failed to attract their dream partner.

            After all, who wants to be with someone who’s miserable? They achieved their practical goal but still failed to have their needs met.

            So they set a goal to lose another ten pounds. And then another. And maybe just ten more. With the destructive and erroneous belief that if they can get thin enough, they’ll find their own personal nirvana. And we all know how that story ends.

            2. You’ll find out what truly motivates you

            The important thing in the process of constructing our best life is not necessarily what goals we set (what we think we want) but what motivates us towards those goals (what we really want).

            The sooner we begin to explore, identify and understand what motivates us towards certain achievements, acquisitions or outcomes (that is, we begin moving towards greater consciousness and self awareness), the sooner we will make better decisions for our life, set more intelligent (and dare I say, enlightened) goals and experience more fulfilment and less frustration.

            Advertising

            We all know people who have achieved what they set out to, only to end up in the same place or worse (emotionally, psychologically, sociologically) because what they were chasing wasn’t really what they were needing.

            What we think we want will rarely provide us with what we actually need.

            3. Your state of mind will be a lot healthier

            We all set specific goals to achieve/acquire certain things (a job, a car, a partner, a better body, a bank balance, a title, a victory) because at some level, most of us believe (consciously or not) that the achievement of those goals will bring us what we really seek; joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

            Of course, setting practical, material and financial goals is an intelligent thing to do considering the world we live in and how that world works.

            But setting goals with an expectation that the achievement of certain things in our external, physical world will automatically create an internal state of peace, contentment, joy and total happiness is an unhealthy and unrealistic mindset to inhabit.

            What you truly want and need

            Sometimes we need to look beyond the obvious (superficial) goals to discover and secure what we really want.

            Sadly, we live in a collective mindset which teaches that the prettiest and the wealthiest are the most successful.

            Some self-help frauds even teach this message. If you’re rich or pretty, you’re happy. If you’re both, you’re very happy. Pretty isn’t what we really want; it’s what we believe pretty will bring us. Same goes with money.

            When we cut through the hype, the jargon and the self-help mumbo jumbo, we all have the same basic goals, desires and needs:

            Joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

            Advertising

            Nobody needs a mansion or a sport’s car but we all need love.

            Nobody needs massive pecs, six percent body-fat, a face lift or bigger breasts but we all need connection, acceptance and understanding.

            Nobody needs to be famous but we all need peace, calm, balance and happiness.

            The problem is, we live in a culture which teaches that one equals the other. If only we lived in a culture which taught that real success is far more about what’s happening in our internal environment, than our external one.

            It’s a commonly-held belief that we’re all very different and we all have different goals — whether short term or long term goals. But in many ways we’re not, and we don’t; we all want essentially the same things.

            Now all you have to do is see past the fraud and deception and find the right path.
