25 at 25: Challenge Completed

feature

A few months ago, as my travel opportunities while living in Spain bounded beyond my wildest dreams, I proposed to myself a challenge: visit 25 countries while 25 years old.

A week ago I arrived back in the United States and am proud to say I did it!

25 Countries in One Year

Though I am back state side for a while, the stories won’t stop. I just completed a month of travel in Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and Slovenia and am brimming with stories to share.

Here’s to living boldly and never slowing down!

And now, a look back at the 25 countries I visited since turning 25 in October. In order: Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Germany, Morocco, the United Kingdom, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Monaco, San Marino, Slovenia, the United States.

    Hi Lauren , I am your follower Josh and after listen you in the podcast I could not resist to visit again and again your travel blog. Firstly congratulations for your challenge of 25@25 and I would like to ask you something. I wonder what countries were your favorites? (except Madrid that I already know it is special for you)…

      Hi Josh! Thanks for your comment! I would say my favorite countries (besides Spain of course) were Portugal and Slovenia — both had great natural landscapes, delicious food and friendly people. But it is tough to choose– I love Europe!
