As soon as people hear that we’ve been traveling nonstop for almost 4 years, they immediately ask “What’s your favorite country” or “What’s your favorite… ?” (Then they fill in the blank: destination to view wildlife, beach, places to snorkel, ancient ruins, cheap eats, etc.) We finally figured out how to answer that favorite country question, so we started to ask ourselves: which places are the best we’ve experienced (in our opinion, of course). Here’s a start to answering those questions.
Our best wildlife destination: Absolutely, without a doubt, our Tanzania safari was the best! Did it help that we saw so many more animals and birds than we could have imagined? We had the greatest guides and stayed at wonderful places, too – so, yes, it was the best!
Our best beaches: Let’s just say we love Bermuda, Sanibel, and Whangaparaoa but for different reasons.
Our best snorkeling: With snorkeling experience limited to seven major destinations around the world, we can definitely say the islands of Aruba and Bonaire had everything we were looking for: lots to see below the surface, calm and warm water, and easy access from a beach. Baby Beach in Aruba and a night snorkeling trip with Renee in Bonaire remain our most memorable.
Let us know what your own “best of the best” are so it’s our turn to get inspired!
