It’s hard to pick a favorite but two of my most memorable, unique trips were to Antarctica and Bhutan.
Antarctica has majestic mountains, glaciers and icebergs that rival the size of New York City skyscrapers. It is a surreal, isolated beauty with massive colonies of penguins and elephant seals. You truly feel as though you’ve traveled to the ends of the earth.
Bhutan is a special place, as anywhere that promotes “Gross National Happiness” would be! Travel restrictions minimize crowds and preserve culture. There’s a feeling of community amongst the awe-inspiring Himalayas and Buddhist temples. It’s a trip of a lifetime that is hard to forget.
