After traveling around the world for 14 months, visiting 34 one of a kind destinations, I think my 5 favorite places are Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, and Italy/Greece (yes I know that’s technically six places). Don’t get me wrong, I love ALL of the places I visited and would be happy living in any of the destinations, however, there is something about these 5 destinations that have a special hold on my heart. I’ve also spent the most amount of time in these 5 places which definitely does impact one’s connection in that place. The more time I spent in the locations the more I fell in love with them. Europe as a continent stole my heart, but Italy and Greece by far are my favorites (oh, but Croatia is so high up there too). After reflecting for days after my sabbatical I think I can say with assurance that these are my favorites.
Do you finding it hard choosing what places are your favorites?
4. New Zealand-Nature
5. Italy & Greece- Culture & Food
These destinations offered me pristine turquoise beaches, unprecedented natural wonders, culture, architecture, history, and amazing FOOD! I’d go back to any of these places (or any of the places I visited really) in a heart beat.
