The travel bug bit me as a child in the 60’s and 70’s, when my parents would load me up, and we’d spend summers touring the country by car. That sense of wanderlust was further ignited in my college days when I had the opportunity to see Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and Mexico for myself. Perhaps, that’s what prompted me to become a professional travel adviser, as there was no shortage of places I wanted to see.
Which is what makes the often-asked question, “What is your favorite destination?” an impossible comparison of apples to oranges.
Every destination that I have visited is distinct, where no two are exactly the same. The experiences that I have gained in each destination have touched me in different ways. So, the only way I can answer that question is to say that every place is my favorite, each is unique and each has provided me a book’s worth of stories and memories that I won’t soon forget.
