t’s practically a daily occurrence to have someone ask me where I love to travel to the most, so I knew it was only a matter of time until my editor did the same. What a question. How can a mother choose her favorite child? That being said, while I might not be able to pick one particular destination, I can easily select eight spots around the world that I love to pieces and would go back to in a heartbeat.We all have our travel niches. Some travel in search of their next dose of adrenaline, others want to visit locations steeped in history. As a perpetual traveler who loves food, has a passion for nature, and is mildly obsessed with wildlife, my adventures tend to center around places with unique local cuisine, crazy landscapes, and interesting animals (with bonus points if those animals can fly and even more if they can’t but still have wings). With that criteria in mind, it’s easy to see why I find the following destinations so bucket worthy.
