I Want To Know: What Is Your Favorite Place To Travel?


What Is Your Favorite Place To Travel? // Bubby and Bean

My last real travel experience (aside from some short day and weekend trips here in the midwest) was three months ago, to Austin, Texas.  I have permanent wanderlust in my heart, so three months is a long time for me be stuck in one place.  Thankfully, Robbie and I are planning to head west on a road trip in a couple of weeks, and I can't wait.  Summertime is the perfect time for vacations, road trips, and even day trips (like this one), so I thought it would be fun for some of Bubby and Bean's medium and large sponsors to share their favorite travel destinations with you guys this month. To find out more about the rad people behind Bubby and Bean's July sponsor team, just click on the links in each of their submissions below to visit their homes around the web.


1. ANDREA FROM MONSABOR: VAL D'ARAN, CATALONIA
I love traveling to the Vall d'Aran in Catalonia (Spain), and whenever I can I go there to spend a few days hiking, exploring its charming villages, or just to relax ... It is a perfect place for nature lovers!

2. LAURA FROM ROOTS & FEATHERS: FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE
Of the places I have been to, my favorite place was the countryside of France. Everywhere you looked it was just beautiful.

3. SARA FROM WINE COUNTRY GOODNESS: SONOMA COUNTY
My back yard! Sonoma County really has everything you could ever want right here - beautiful vineyards for wine tasting, a rugged coast for picnics, the redwoods for hiking, the Russian River for kayaking, artisan food producers and farms, and a ton of amazing restaurants and eateries. If I ever need to 'getaway,' I can also just zip down to San Francisco or over to Napa for a totally different experience. Sonoma County really is the perfect little paradise!

4. TARA FROM STARLETTA DESIGNS: QUEBEC CITY
If you asked me a few months ago, my answer would have probably been Florida, but since my husband and I took our honeymoon to Quebec City in April, I would have to say that is my favourite place! It isn't too far away, about 6.5 hours from me here in Ontario and the culture, the architecture and the food are amazing. It really is like a little slice of Paris in our backyard and I can't wait to visit there again soon (and with some better walking shoes)!

5. MARIA FROM LITTLE TREE: CYPRUS
My favorite place to travel is definitely Cyprus. I spent four years of my young life there and a piece of my heart will always be there. It brings back a lot of childhood memories going back, and I can't help but miss it as soon as I leave.

6. THE TEAM AT BLOWFISH SHOES: L.A. AREA BEACHES
We love traveling to the beaches around Los Angeles. Malibu, Hermosa, Laguna, are all great spots to soak up some sunshine!

7. ANDREA FROM GAIA CONCEPTIONS: INDIA
My favorite place to travel to is India to visit our natural dye blockprinting team (you can see a video here!).

Big thanks to those who shared their favorite travel destinations today (and to all of the wonderful shops and blogs who chose to advertise this month!).  Sponsors are crucial to Bubby and Bean.  The funds raised by their ad spots are used to devote the necessary time and money to keep this blog going and make sure it's at its best for our readers. Sponsors support Bubby and Bean, so when our readers support our sponsors, everyone wins!


Oh, and my favorite place to travel?  In the U.S., San Francisco wins.  I actually love the entire Bay area, and try to make it out there once a year.  Abroad, I'd have to say Queensland, Australia.  The beaches are incredible, the people are wonderful, and it's the most beautiful place I've ever seen.  I really hope to go back someday.

Your turn!  What is your favorite place to travel?  I want to know!

  1. My travelling days are over now - but when I did, I went to South Africa, Kenya and Canada (this time for 12 years). All from the UK and back. Was born in India (in the part that is now Pakistan), but was brought up until I was 8 in south India, on a tea estate! Think I've had enough of the gypsy life - but love hearing about where others go or dream of going!

  2. Wow! All of these places sound lovely. Closest to me here in California would be the Sonoma County and LA area beaches. =0)
    I'll take any beach for a summer visit!

  7. I love the fun and creative ways that you engage with your sponsors, Melissa - you ask the best questions! I've had travel on the brain all week; since I already live in Paris you'd think I'd be satisfied, but no, I always want to run off somewhere new. This post offered some really wonderful inspirations :)
    xox,

  10. My favorites are Iceland and Scandinavia (with Sweden as my nr 1). I also enjoyed my trip to NYC very much.
    In a few years I'm planning to visit San Fransisco, I'm really curious about that city and heard a lot of great things about it.
