I’ve been all over the Western USA exploring many mountain ranges, rivers, deserts, canyons, and valleys. I have been through various parts of Baja, central, and southern Mexico, Chile, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Oahu, Maui, Mauritius, Reunion Island, all over southern India, and also in the north multiple places in the Himalayas.Top 5 destinations, in no order though…
The Himalayas for sure – It’s a moving experience to be anywhere near something that magnificent.
Reunion Island – The fact that 40% of the island is protected by UNESCO for outstanding universal value should say enough, but some of the most stunning beaches and coral reef and also the most unique mountainous and underground formations all created by different volcanoes, the most famous being 500,000 years old and one of the most active on earth.
Patagonia Chilena – Everything you could ever need to stimulate the senses! The famous Torres del Paine National Park is a world renowned destination for its stunning peaks and lakes. The region also has tons of lakes, rivers, volcanoes, mountains, trails, horses, and fresh native food…it’s really hard to beat a place that has it all at such a high caliber.
Chiang Mai Thailand – Thai’s are so rich in culture and in spirit, you cant help to feel like you’re in some part of heaven. The mountains in Chiang Mai are moving and mystical and the people immediately invite you into their lives as family, genuinely. Elephant sanctuaries, white water rafting, stunning views, a place to truly unwind!
Hawaii – Nothing says special like islands in the middle of nowhere… inhabited by some of the friendliest people and stunning beaches. I always thought of Hawaii as a busy destination spot, but there are many places to find completely private picturesque beaches. Hikes with absolutely stunning views, swimming with sea turtles and dolphins, and waterfalls all over the island – it’s always hard to leave!
