50 in a year in Europe

I've read many of these 101 in 1001 posts and I decided to make my own post.  However while making a list of a 101 things to do in one year I realized odds are, I won't get half of them done so I decided to shorten it to 50 in a year in Europe, and odds are I won't even get to them all (so I'll just have to come back one day).  These are a bunch of things that I want to see, do, or places I just want to visit.  I know there are many that I am missing so if there is anything that I absolutely must do while I am in Europe just comment and let me know!
