1. Patagonia
    D3db11b9 3d5c 47d1 979e f6dcc79aeae5
    Hiking on Él Perito Moreno Glacier is perhaps my favorite moment in life, thus far. Surreal setting, blue and pure glacial water, ice crunching beneath your feet, mountains in the distance... sigh
  2. South Africa
    2f8b113a 4981 4ff5 91d8 0968193fc699
    Cape Town and the wine region. Stellenbosch during fall is magnificent.
  3. Grand Teton National Park - Wyoming
    10e54dc6 1768 4469 b4cf b570eedda991
    Surreal. Breathtaking. Endless beautiful hikes. Float in String Lake. Jackson is only 4 miles away!
  4. Glacier National Park - Montana
    4a4f9b73 5d67 452e 823d a0791f340e4e
    The park is so expansive, the helicopter tour was crucial in understanding the scope of the park. Iceberg Lake hike is a must!!! (View of Iceberg Lake from the copter)
  5. Lake District - Chile/Argentina
    Cb294b86 8f88 49c4 a24e 29f04cf10fd0
    Bariloche in particular. Fully satisfied my need for activities (in a most beautiful setting). Hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, snowboarding, etc. and its proximity to Mendoza is an added bonus.
  6. Charleston, South Carolina
    68dc1515 9a92 4a55 bd3b 686bfb5c3dea
    Calling all foodies and history buffs. However, I am neither of these yet still Charleston ranks very high. I spent 7 years here and intend to spend more.
  7. Okavango Delta - Botswana
    6269b256 94ec 4644 a1ad fe4c6ca1c1df
    Mokoro ride through the Delta to a remote campsite. Walking safari tour - a much more intimate way to encounter all the wildlife. Natives singing by the campfire. ✨magical✨
  8. The Southwest - USA
    5cb6cee4 ef4c 41be 901b aafa66fffc1e
    Taos, Santa Fe, Zion National Park. Unbelievable beauty.
  9. Peru
    D1beb95d 1231 433b 8c36 68b140d3d324
    In its entirety. Vast and varied. It has 30 of the 32 world climates! And of course Machu Picchu - photos do not do it justice, it's a spiritual experience (you must hike there. Not necessarily Inca Trail, I did the less populated Salkantay trek).
  10. Granada, Spain
    24f05302 bfd6 45b7 91e7 94b5bfbeb2ab
    I can't determine if this is a true favorite or sentimentally so. I studied abroad here. Often compared to Sevilla, but I describe it as a small hippy mountain city. Bring some sangria up to the mirador and watch the sun set over the city and The Alhambra.
  11. New York City
    D92c090c 358d 4f7a ab03 b0d2eb231b2c
    Last. But certainly not least. Home.
