This past year was packed with exciting experiences. The year included visits to Europe, South American, Los Angeles and other spots in the US. Now that it’s coming to an end, here’s a look back at my favorite travel memories of 2014.
Walking a Roman Aqueduct in Nimes, France: The Pont du Gard was built by the Romans in about 50 BC. How often can you say you’ve walked across an UNESCO World Heritage Site?
Touring the Walled City of Avignon: A 24 hour stop is all it took for me to fall in love with Avignon‘s charming cobblestone streets, 14th century buildings and festive town square. It stands as one of my favorite cities in France.
Tapas and Sangria in Barcelona: Enjoying local food is one of my favorite parts of traveling. Sampling Spain’s sangria, paella and various tapas was one of the things I was most looking forward to in Barcelona, and it didn’t disappoint.
Enjoying the Luxurious Life in Monaco: Of course visiting Monte Carlo was one of my favorite stops. All that glitz and glamour in one place can’t be wrong. Visiting the casino, the Prince’s Palace and the port of Monaco is a wonderful way to spend a day. Even the bus ride through its hilly roads is breathtakingly beautiful (and a little nerve racking).
Attending a Traditional Chilean Wedding: My sister-in-law’s wedding reception was attended by 500 guests and lasted until 6 AM. South American weddings are no joke.
The lavender fields of Provence: A check on the bucket list! Visiting the lavender fields the summer months is a must do in Provence, and it’s one of my favorite memories of Southern France.
