As a consequence, I am often asked to name my favorite place. Frankly, this is a lot like being asked to name your favorite child. You love each one in their own way and for different reasons. But today is a day for introspection so I will give it a go… I would love to know if you agree with me or can help me see the error of my ways.
Here is my list of My Favorite place(s) so far:
Beauty: Country – New Zealand, North and South Islands and Alaska
Beauty: City – Prague and Paris
Food: Italy, hands down favorite … Hong Kong, Thailand and anywhere in Southern Louisiana
Ancient Ruins: Ephesus, Turkey, Rome and Athens (in that order)
History: Italy, Greece and Egypt
Walking Accessibility: Rome and San Francisco, CA
Friendliest Locals: Costa Rica and Indonesia
Adventure: South Africa and Zimbabwe (at least back when it was safe to visit)
Most Resilient People: Russia and Hungary
Comfortable/Easy for first-time travelers: Germany and England
All time favorite city that I wish to return to the second I leave: Rome!
This is just my list and I know it differs from yours. With luck, this list will continue to grow and change as I change.
Where is your favorite place in the world and why?
