One of my favorite travel memories from childhood is of Grindelwald, Switzerland. But would it be the same place 35 years later?
Settled centuries ago by rugged Italian ranchers and farmers, surrounded by Alpine mountains, and shot through with icy rivers and waterfalls lies the small commune of Gordola, a part of Switzerland that few tourists have experienced.
Cathedrals, castles, flowers, and first beers in Cologne and Brühl, Germany.
Mighty fortresses and culinary works of art in pastoral Luxembourg.
Liechtenstein is fun to say.
Although we fully expected to see the world as a series of natural wonders and iconic buildings, we have started looking more at human connections to truly define a location.
Avignon is the perfect hub for seeing some amazing history, including four UNESCO World Heritage sites, give or take.
We spent the morning at a secret beach on the French Riviera and the afternoon at a medieval fortress covered in contemporary art.
Some people become the place for you.
They can’t all be winners.
