In the order I visited them. No playing favorites here!
  1. 1.
    United States of America
    Home sweet home. But wanderlust causes my feet to often drift away.
  2. 2.
    Clotted cream, my love, please convince America - we are not whole until you immigrate from England. P.S. I love you
  3. 3.
    So this is what my ancestors felt? *think German thoughts*
  4. 4.
    The colosseum brought tears to my eyes. That might have been from the dirt, but no matter. It was still traumatic.
  5. 5.
    Vatican City
    Okay, Mr. Pope, how exactly does one get their own country? Because I'm in the market.
  6. 6.
    Every bit as pretty as the stories say. Rolling hills, grazing sheep and horrifying car sickness defined my trip.
  7. 7.
    The hills were alive with my sounds of music. Aka: I was sang my way through the country.
  8. 8.
    The place is charming and adorable but filthy, filthy, filthy. Don't trust strange puddles or "clean" surfaces. However, the experience is well with it.
  9. 9.
    The only international airport I've ever flown through that closes. What are poor travelers such as ourselves to do when the airport chairs aren't available for sleeping in? However, the locals are very nice and accommodating. Good job, Lithuania.
  10. 10.
    The amount of soviet statues around Riga was intimidating, but the architecture was magnificent.
  11. 11.
    My first glorious experience with long-term squatty-potty usage. Don't knock it til you try it.
  12. 12.
    Wait. Did we even leave America?
  13. 13.
    Who can ask for more than crystal clear water, unique seafood and colorful buildings?
  14. 14.
    I'm certain that I gained 1,000lbs from all the delicious food I consumed.
  15. 15.
    Home away from home. I miss the food, the language and the people every single day 💔 (the second place I had to implement my impeccable squatty-potty skills)
  16. 16.
    A whole coconut is less than a dollar. Can I get an "amen!"?
  17. 17.
    United Arab Emirates
    We played tag on the millionaires' playground at 2am. Isn't being an adult great?
  18. 18.
    Turkish. Delight. Oh, C. S. Lewis, you nailed Edmond's Turkish delight obsession. I would certainly consider sacrificing my family for a room full of that stuff.
