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

    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.

            How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

            How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

            Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

            You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

            Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

            1. Work on the small tasks.

            When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

            Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

            2. Take a break from your work desk.

            Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

            Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

            3. Upgrade yourself

            Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

            The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

            4. Talk to a friend.

            Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

            Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

            5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

            If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

            Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

            Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

            6. Paint a vision to work towards.

            If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

            Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

            Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

            7. Read a book (or blog).

            The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

            Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

            Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

            8. Have a quick nap.

            If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

            9. Remember why you are doing this.

            Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

            What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

            10. Find some competition.

            Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

            Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

            11. Go exercise.

            Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

            Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

            As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

            Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

            12. Take a good break.

            Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

            Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

            Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
