Milan, Italy! The food, the fashion, the shopping. Lake Como is a 1/2 hour train ride away with so much to see in the villages around the lake. The Canal area of Milan is great as well. Seeing the painting of the Last Supper was another amazing sight.

Two places come to mind immediately:  Iceland and Lauternbrunnen, Switzerland.  Sheer beauty.  We have been all around the world and Iceland is our number one favorite.  It feels like the country is one big national park.  One of the few places where you can quickly get away from it all and see geysers, waterfalls, icebergs, black beaches, wild horses, volcanoes, glaciers all within a few hours of each other.

 

Lauternbrunnen, Switzerland: Try and ebike ride through the Lauternbrunnen and Grindelwald valleys.  For me, one of the most beautiful and peaceful rides of my life. 

 

Unfortunately, both places are not cheap.

Went to South Africa in 2014, absolutely loved Cape Town and Balule Wildlife Refuge up near Krueger National Park. Would love to go back.

Hi! I am sending you good vibes and some of my luck (I don't have much, but I'll share!) I'm sure you can deal with it and have a good time. I miss being on my own and just being free to do what I want to do. Grab a friend (or not) and go for picnic, just get out and about. 👣🐣🐾☕🍹🌵🌴🌈🌎

My husband & I traveled to Portugal & it was one of the best trips i've ever been on!!!  We went to Porto, Portugal first & went on the Duro Wine tour that was Fabulous!!! We were only in Porto for 1.5 full day's & i want to go back to explore it more!!!  The food was fantastic, the people very friendly & warm, & it was very budget friendly as far as money goes!!!!  I LOVE their Port Wine that is ONLY made in Portugal!!!!!!!!!!!

We then travled 2.5 hours to Lisbon, Portugal via train & it truly is a magical place with palm tree's waving their leaves in the tropical breeze.  It is the Capital of Portugal so there are more homeless & scammer's walking around, but it still was a wonderful place to visit as well but my #1 is PORTO!!!  I hope to visit there again one day, but have many more places to visit first that are on my bucket list!!!

@tess6383  I agree.  It was on my bucket list for a long time and I went last year. I could easily do that again. Denali was breathtaking!  I might travel the opposite way next time.  What was your fav area?

I agree - a cruise to Alaska is spectacular. If you like that one, you should also try a cruise up the coast of Norway to the North Cape.
