“The world is a book, and those who do not travel only read one page.”

I’ve been lucky enough to travel to 30 countries in my 21 years of life. During this time, I’ve had my breath taken away far too many times to count. From spectacular natural landscapes to phenomenal man-made feats, I’ve been entranced by the beauty of the world we live in over and over again. A piece of my heart now lies in many place all over the globe, and I thought that I would share with you where these places are.

    The most beautiful place I’ve seen is Lassen National Park in California. The deep blue lakes and pine green trees contrasting the gray of Mt. Lassen is amazing! You should definitely go!

    My close 2nd most beautiful place is Punta Rusia, Dominican Republic :-)

      Amazing, it’s such a great place! I would recommend going snorkeling with the turtles… It’s meant to be incredible (I was going to go and then it got cancelled due to weather!), and definitely head up to the lighthouse at sunset!
