When you look at your favorite trips, where did the original destination inspiration come from?
Here are some of my examples:
1. Perhentian Islands, Malaysia – Lonely Planet Thorntree board (read about them and they were on my list for YEARS before I actually went)
2. NYC – TV and movies. Probably mostly Sex and the City!
3. UK. An older cousin of mine lived in London when I was a little kid. When she came to visit with her English boyfriend she had cool things like shopping bags from Harrods (haha). We also had CDs of Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals and I had a sense that maybe one day I could go to London and see musicals! (I don’t think NYC was on my radar back then).
You? What have been your three favorite destinations and where did the first inspiration to go there come from? Would LOVE to hear.
