  1. We have just got back from Iceland. Which we loved! I have also been there in the winter which was actually not as cold as Alaska. I have been to Yosemite, Ireland, Alberta and Oahu. As far as my favorite I would have to say the next place I travel. I can never pick my favorite place because it seems to change every time I travel.

  2. I have visited three of these: Antelope Canyon, Yosemite and Strasbourg. I will revisit each, and will make every effort to include the other 24, in my wider itinerary, in the years to come.

  3. Have only been to a handfull of the places on the list. I guess the few I have been too is generally among the most beautiful in the country except Phuket which i wouldn’t put anywhere the most pretty place in Thailand. Not sure how it made it to the list. Maybe too many tourist making it popular so it makes list when it really shouldn’t. 🙂
