You can only travel to one place the rest of your life. Where would it be?

If you had to pick only ONE place (other than your hometown) to go over and over for the rest of your life, where would it be? Why this destination over any other?

    If I could vacation with my family in St Barthélemy for the rest of my life, I would probably think I was dreaming. It's just magical...the beaches, the views, the overall sense of calm...it doesn't get any better.

    My choice would be St John.

    St JohnHere's why:

    - I can be on the beach there on the day I leave.

    - Since most of the island is designated a National Park, I can guarantee it will never be overdeveloped and super crowded.

    - The beaches are amazing

    - Awesome outdoor activities, hiking, sailing, boating, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, etc.

    - Fantastic food and restaurants

    - Availability of day trips to nearby islands

    -Rum may in fact be cheaper than water


    If you would like more information on some specific activities or recommendations please see a previous post of mine here: http://www.trippy.com/question/St-John-Must-see-do-while-in-the-Virgin-Islands

    Great question Michelle! I asked a question in the similar train of thought a while back except, though maybe a bit more dramatic than yours.

    Hands down: South Africa (could I be any more broad?). There are some places that compete, including Big Sur and Hawaii, but South Africa is the only place I've traveled to as much as I have and just wanted to continue to go back to. Every time I visit, I learn things about myself, South Africa, and the world that I don't just learn from any trip. I've always said that it takes the best things about my favorite places in the world (dramatic landscapes, outdoor adventure, great food, good drinks, hospitable people) and puts it all in one place. It has culture and vibe, but yet you never forget that it's still Africa. Plus, I mean where else can you have wine from local winemakers for less than $2 a glass. That's better than two-buck chuck. Also, bunny chow, and hot air ballooning, and the Big Five at Kruger Park, and the only African whiskey to win Spirit of the Year, and craft beer. And bilton. Okay, I'll stop now.

    I love London because it feels like home -- it has ever since my first trip back in 2011. I'm not English, but for some reason it's the place why my heart is happiest. If I could only go there -- or even live there forever, I gladly would!

    Valencia, Spain.

    After living there for two years, I feel more at home in Valencia than I do anywhere else in the world. I can ski in the winter (just an hour away) and both hiking in the mountains and lounging on the beach are just minutes away.Valencia

    Festivals are vibrant and fun, from the Tomatina to Fallas, bull runs and the crazy water fights of Corpus Cristi.Valencia

    The people are warm, friendly, and become family. I always felt safe and welcome.

    The food is varied and delicious. Even in Valencia, I can find some of the best Japanese and Italian food I've ever eaten and there are tons of great Spanish fusion restaurants that serve much more than paella. Seafood is fresh and produce is grown there as well. I miss nísperos and bacalao.Valenciaimage from studylanguages.org

    There is a deep rooted culture, but modernity too. Carthaginian ruins, Moorish palaces, and modern Calatrava "cities." There are waterman who still use 400 year old boats to fish the lake at Albufera.

    It isn't as touristy as Madrid or Barcelona, and I can escape the city and find hidden aquaducts and beautiful waterfalls in places like Bejís, Montanejos, and Albarracin.

    It's home to my favorite bakery, Pastelería C. Aixa and the family who runs it - a place to sit, chat, and sip a "tallat."

    For me, it would be Israel. Despite the reputation pushed by the American media, Israel is really a lovely place with a lot of interesting things to do. If you like history, the beach, mountains, desert, lake like water, it is all there. I love history and there is something historical every where you go. Obviously Jerusalem is quite interesting with a lot of historical significance (regardless of your religious belief or lack thereof).

    Jerusalemimage from orangesmile.comThere are other incredible places as well. One of my favorite places in Israel is Tiberias. The food is amazing, the people are extremely friendly and the Sea of Galilee is gorgeous.

    Sea of Galileeimage from amyethomas.blogspot.comIsrael is definitely #1 on my list.

    NOTE: I am not making any political/religious statement with this post, I just really enjoy visiting the country.

    Quebec City. Small but stunning city. Very unique and outstanding cuisine. Fairmont Le Château Frontenac gives the city the romanticism necessary to spend an unforgettable vacation with the love one, the family and even though if you are planning a solo trip.

    I read this questions as, "Where would you like a vacation home?" -- which is something I think about way to often, haha. I'd have to choose British Virgin Islands. I'd spend all my time hanging on the beach and sailing between Tortola and Jost Van Dyke Island. These islands beautiful, the water is unreal, the people are nice and it's all so laid back -- to me, they are unlike any others islands in the Caribbean.Jost Van Dyke Islandimage from tripwow.tripadvisor.comTortolaBritish Virgin Islands

    One city or one country?

    If it's one country I would say the USA because we go usually at least once a year, they are our neighbours and it's a great country to visit, so much to see and do.

    One city is harder but I'd say somewhere in Hawaii, doesn't matter what island but just somewhere in Hawaii, such a lovely place to recharge your batteries.

    A resort in the Maldives. We've traveled to so many places around the world. I just got back from the Galapagos a week ago but everything pales in comparison to the three nights my wife and I spent in the Maldives at the end of an India vacation. We stayed at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. The costs were very high but well worth it. You'll get the best pictures of any vacation you've been on and still swear that the water was a more vibrant color than you could capture.

    While on the private island we used the complimentary sail boats, snorkeled, my wife had an afternoon at one of the spas and we had the most relaxing and enjoyable destination of our lives. Every trip we plan we try to come up with something that can match it. We never expect to exceed the enjoyment of that trip.

    I have been tempted by Sri Lanka after a short holiday thereSri Lankabut, every year I go to Bergamo Italy a number of times.BergamoWhen I'm not there I miss the place, when I arrive I feel as though I'm home! I love Bergamo for the incredible beauty of the city, the warmth of the people and the fact that the little city is so self-contained, with lots to do and, in the (unlikely) event that I get bored I can pop on a train to Milan or Comer See It is the perfect place.
