The best and worst of around the world

Out and Around bloggers share their favorite places around the worldBY LISA DAZOLS

We’re home! As we’ve caught up with family and friends this week, we’ve found the number number one asked question about our ’round-the-world journey is, “What was your favorite place?” Jenni and I try to answer this question by listing our favorite (and not-so-favorite) experiences around the world this year. For more travel recommendations, check out the Places We Love section in each of the fifteen countries we’ve traveled to this year.

Best Beach
Lisa: Boracay, Philippines. Incredibly long stretch of white sand beach with the bluest waters I’ve ever seen. With so much beach, it’s easy to feel like you’re on your own secret island. We got engaged here. It can get a bit over-touristed, so I recommend staying further down the island in Station 3 where it’s significantly more quiet.

Jenni: Zanzibar, Tanzania is up there too. Another white sand paradise. We stayed at a fantastic beach resort that was quite affordable, as Zanzibar can get quite expensive. I set my watch for 5pm happy hour every day.
