As we close out the decade, I wanted to commemorate 2019 with a toast to the Bests!
Best memory: Meeting Alex’s family for the first time…and of course, these surf lessons 🙂
Park City, UT
Best memory: Hitting the slopes of Deer Valley (and thus, having Alex ski since the mountain is closed to snowboarders ha!). See what to do in Park City.
Best Memory: Stepping foot onto uncharted territory during my trip to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia before the tourism gates opened in October of this year – as controversial as it was. I travel to learn, not to judge.
Best Memory: Guiding a group of women around my old stomping grounds and favorite place on earth! LimitLes in Argentina, I will NEVER forget you!
Best Memory: Seeing this place a second time! Yosemite has officially become my favorite U.S. National Park!
Cabo San Lucas, MX
Best Memory: Dining cliffside with my love in Cabo San Lucas <3
Best Memory: Deep diving into the unsettling history of the region. Eyes wide open, jaw on the floor, mind blown. See what to do in Berlin.
Best Memory: Soaking in the thermal baths and realizing where my love for little bodies of water came from…my Hungarian great grandmother!
Best Memory: No plans, no reservations, no problem! Traveling the coastline with a blank itinerary was H E A V E N. See more in my Guide to Croatia.
Lake Bled, Slovenia
Best Memory: Being able to experience this little body of water in the tiny country of Slovenia was so much fun! Rain or shine…everyone should put this one on your list.
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Best Memory: Seeing this monastery for the first time after viewing it on screen for so long! See more from my 24 Hours in Bosnia & Herzegovenia.
Best Memory: Going back to the Sacred Valley and climbing up the side of a mountain with new friends. LimitLes in Peru, you were one hell of a TRIP.
Best Memory: Glamping with good friends and experiencing a new (and the very FIRST!) national park! See my Yellowstone National Park: A Guide for First Timers.
Manhattan Beach, CA
Best Memory: Moving to the coolest neighborhood and into a beautiful house with my one & only Drone Pilot!
Best Memory: Our LimitLes in Bali boat day can’t really be beat…but then again, neither can this dining area.
Byron Bay, Australia
Best Memory: For a little R&R after LimitLes, Alex and I traveled to Byron Bay from his hometown of Sydney.
Zion National Park, UT
Best Memory: It’s been 3 years since I hiked Angel’s Landing, and it was just as fun the second time around with my friend Sarah Herron – friends since The Bachelor! See more of Zion National Park.
Best Memory: I did a lot of repeats this year (Sydney, Park City, Argentina, Yosemite, Cabo, Peru, Bali, Zion..) and Zermatt was no different. The last time I visited was in Summer, and I adore seeing how destinations change throughout seasons!
Canary Islands, Spain
Best Memory: I can’t tell you how long I’ve been *dreaming* of spending a night at this pink hotel off the coast of Africa…must have been years and years at least. I finally did it this month and loved every second!
