I realized at a very young age that it was a big world out there, and I wanted to see it all! I first saw that dream start to become a reality during college where I majored in International Relations and had the chance to do an exchange program in Japan. The rest of my journey began from there.

I have travelled far and wide over the years for both business and pleasure. I love the chance to experience new cultures and places, and I love getting to share my experiences with others. Below is my list of the top ten places to visit and a few things you must do when you visit them.

My Top Ten Places to Visit Around the World:

– Capetown, South Africa: Travel out to vineyards and get to the top of Table Mountain to take in the sunset.

– Auckland, NZ: Take a day trip to Waiheke Island.

– Vienna, Austria: Walk the inner city and take it all in, and take train to Salzburg and stay at Fuschl Am See if you want a weekend getaway.

– Istanbul, Turkey: Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar are must see’s.

– Jerusalem: Pay the money and get a guided tour. It’s worth it to make sure you don’t miss anything.

– Dublin, Ireland: Go sailing on Dublin Bay.

– San Francisco, CA: Take a walk along the path at Crissy Field.

– Kyoto, Japan: Kinkaku-ji (the Golden Temple) and Gion. Pro tip: Read “Memories of a Geisha” before you visit.

– Bali, Indonesia: Relax, Breath and take it all in. If you need an activity, take a day trip to Ubud and discover galleries and stores that feature local Indonesian artists.

– Santa Fe, NM: Walk Canyon Road and take a short trip out of town to hike through Tent Rocks.

It’s a big world with so many amazing things to see and experience! I keep memories from all of my favorite trips with me at all times. Check out Urbane Mobile’s Pinterest Site for a few more ideas and pictures that might just inspire you to grab your passport and go!
