A list of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Honorable mentions at the bottom. Future confirmed travel plans also listed.
  1. Damascus, Syria
    145bbfae fad6 4b31 8ecb cdf4d441f5a6
    I'm a little biased here. I'm a Syrian citizen (as well as an American) and I miss Damascus every day. It was one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
  2. Queenstown, New Zealand
    Fafed604 0bff 4839 8988 8c42578071a2
    Adventure capital of the world. Nearby Milford Sound is home to wild dolphins.
  3. Sydney, Australia
    Self explanatory.
  4. Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
    Christmas 2011 was a good time. It was New Years Eve, and the beaches and city were flooded with locals having fun.
  5. Paris, France
    This is cliche, yes, but it's truly a remarkable city.
  6. Cairns, Australia
    The gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Beautiful scenery. Also I held a Koala.
  7. Recife, Brasil
    0e778fdb 8d88 4585 858b 18561b4ac78d
    Went to Recife and Natal for the World Cup in 2014. Hadn't ever had an experience like that.
  8. Buenos Aires, Argentina
    Also Christmas 2011. I got food poisoning but loved the city.
  9. Dublin, Ireand
    A6005c34 e194 4563 8bb9 e3f7d90de563
    One of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen. The way it's laid out is perfect for walking.
  10. Iguazu Falls, Argentina/Brazil
    The largest waterfalls in the world. Absolutely breathtaking.
  11. Amazon Rainforest, Brazil
    The home of some of he most incredible animals in the world
