Favorite Travel Destination?
Wherever I can get some exercise in the morning and some sun/relaxing afternoons and evenings by the beach! I recently went to Thailand and enjoyed hiking through the coastlines and jungle areas followed by coconut water and pina coladas by the beach in the afternoons, and then trying local restaurants in the evenings. A trip to remember!
