How do you pick your travel destinations? Some people have bucket lists they’ve been compiling since their first part-time job pay cheque. Others have maps adorned with colour coded flags for places they’ve been and ones they’re yet to step foot in. There are even some bargain hunters out there who happily search ‘everywhere’ on Skyscanner and see where they can land for as little as possible. We’re a bit of all of the above.
But with so many amazing places to see and my indecisiveness, it can still be hard to choose so we put 300 European cities of a certain size into a spreadsheet, put on a random generator and told Excel to throw out some options. A couple of months ago, it threw out Nuremberg. We knew two things about Nuremberg; it was the site of the Nuremberg trials, and they have an amazing Christmas market. With Christmas already a distant memory, we wavered because we weren’t sure what else it had going for it, but some might say we’re gamblers so we took a chance on this city and found quite the hidden gem!
