My Favorite Destinations of 2014


1) China. Of course China is number one on my favorite destinations list! I absolutely love visiting China and miss it every time I leave. Now, China is a huge country and I've only visited a few locations; however, my favorite is (and always will be) Yunnan Province, where I used to live. During my summer trip in China I visited a new location in Yunnan Province - Lugu Lake and it was absolutely stunning. For more about Lugu Lake check out this post.

2) Helsingor, Denmark. Visiting Copenhagen and Helsingor this past October/November was such a pleasant treat. I had known pretty much nothing about Helsingor prior to setting out on a day trip to Helsingor, but I'm so glad I went. Helsingor was a very cute seaside town with a creative edge and huge library. For more about Helsingor check out this post.

3) Asheville, North Carolina, USA. I had asked around about Asheville prior to visiting and heard it was cool.  But, when I visited Asheville this past May I was blown away by the creativity and incredible food. For more about Asheville check out this post.


Where did you visit in 2014? Where should I plan to visit in 2015?

  1. I'm living in China now and I agree with you; it's amazing! I have yet to visit Yunnan province though as I'm living outside Beijing. I've heard it's fabulous and I hope to make my way there some day.

    1. You really should visit Yunnan! That part of the country is stunning and very different from Beijing. I also like Beijing, but haven't spent as much time there.

    2. Nice post! I'm also living in China now, in Wuhan. I would love to go to Yunnan sometime, but I don't think it will happen on this trip.
      Will take a look at your China posts for sure! Happy New Year!

  2. I've heard so many awesome things about Asheville - I have a few friends living down there now. Definitely planning a stop that way when I'm back in the States.
