The Best of Our World Tour

I’m honored to be featured on the homepage of MyDomaine.com today, sharing the top 5 places we visited on our world tour of over 60 countries!

Because it is incredibly hard to pick favorites, in this post I’m awarding more specific superlatives to many of the destinations we’ve explored over the past year: from the best beaches, wildlife, and culinary experiences, to my favorite train journeys, historic hotels, and wine regions around the world. Beneath each picture you can see the category and “winners” and click through to read the entire blog post on each destination!

Thank you so much for reading, and be sure to follow me on INSTAGRAM as we finish our world trip by traveling around the USA, and SUBSCRIBE to my newsletter to receive my weekly email and never miss a post!
