Looking to create a study abroad bucket list? Look no farther! I’ve put together the ultimate European Scavenger Hunt so you and your friends can hit the highlights of Europe and make memories to last a lifetime.

I’m on Instagram at ShesATripBlog  and would LOVE to see your entries as you complete the list.  Make sure to tag me!

Editor’s note: I took many of these photos during my actual semester abroad, many moons ago before I was a blogger. Pre-braces and with a bad haircut. Be nice!

I’ve organized these by country first, then by points level — but, fair warning, everything is made up and the points don’t matter.

Final Tally

Best of luck completing your Study Abroad Bucket List! Add up all your points at the end of the semester to see who won (hint: all of you win because you got to study abroad in Europe).

I wasn’t able to do all of these in a semester, so don’t worry if you can’t either — just enjoy the journey.
