    GALS ON TOUR! Holidaying in Europe…

    Since jetting off on my first group holiday to the notorious party island of Malia in Crete, Europe I’ve been hooked on these girly getaways.

    Sunbathing, drinking, meeting new people, bobbing around the swimming pool, laughing uncontrollably, chilling on the balcony, dancing the night away and inhaling a copious amount of greasy food –  these group holidays are the perfect way to spend some quality time with your gal pals and make some unforgettable (yet, hazy) memories.

    So, if you’re thinking of booking a drunken escape with the girls (which I think you should!), here is my guide to some of the best party destinations in Europe:

    Gals on Tour, Europe - Malia - My Culture Craving

    Malia, Crete

    Malia was my first taste of a girly holiday abroad… and I couldn’t get enough.

    Sunshine, cocktails and independence confirmed my love for travel and allowed me to spend some much-needed, quality time with my bezzies!

    Gals on Tour, Europe - Ayia Napa - My Culture Craving

    Ayia Napa, Cyprus

    Home to sensational weather, divine beaches and  a square of lively bars and clubs, Ayia Napa is a party animal’s paradise. From scandalous beach parties and booze cruises to hilarious silent discos and pool parties, Ayia Napa offers everything you need to feed your inner wild child.

    However, if you’re also looking to get a good ol’ culture fix whilst you’re away, rent a moped or quad bike and get exploring the incredible scenery, which surrounds Ayia Napa’s tourist fueled strip.

    Gals on Tour, Europe - My Culture Craving

    Sunny Beach, Bulgaria

    Offering satin soft sandy beaches, a litre of local beer for £1 and an up-and-coming nightlife, Sunny Beach is a great party destination for any budget conscious travellers.

    However, with the mafia presence still being prominent, you must be extra cautious not to get yourself into any sticky situations when on a night out – something, which is not ideal when you want to drink your inhibitions away.

    If you do decide to take a trip to Sunny Beach, ensure you read up about any potential scams and places to avoid before you set off.

    Hvar, Croatia - My Culture Craving

    Hvar, Croatia

    Hvar’s perfect marriage of luxurious living, breathtaking beauty and vibrant nightlife, makes this glorious slice of the Dalmatian coast a ‘gals on tour’ haven.

    With its glamorous harbour, lined with extravagant, luxury yachts, crystal clear waters, imposing rocky alcoves, fabulous sandstone buildings and quaint, pebble beaches, Hvar is the ultimate party destination with a huge splash of culture and charm.

    Favourite Moments of Travel - Ibiza - My Culture Craving

    Ibiza, Spain

    Ibiza is the party capital of the world. However, due to its painful prices, this party paradise tends to attract an older crowd than places such as, Malia and Ayia Napa. With club entry costing anything from €15 to €100 and drink prices soaring as high as €30 for a vodka mixer in the super clubs (*insert shocked emoji here*), partying here comes at an eye-watering price.

    Nonetheless, once you’ve scraped together enough ‘dollar’ to make the trip, you will be welcomed by some of the best nightclubs in the world, stunning beaches, first-class cuisine and the chance to see some of the best artists in the music industry perform live.

    Trust me, it’s worth the wait!!

    Check out this website to find out the line up of events and performers at each club  as well as to buy any tickets you wish to book before you leave.

    I love backpacking and experiencing culture in other countries however, there’s no shame in trading in your backpack for a wheelie suitcase every once in a while and enjoying a week of well-earned relaxation with your best friends.

    Anyway, sampling the local beer counts as being cultured… doesn’t it?
