Congrats Marrakech for Being Named 2015 #1 Travel Destination in the World

I’m back in Marrakech where sidewalks in my neighborhood are crowded with tourists (Nashville, think CMA Music Festival Fan Fare).  And this party is just getting started!  While I was in Paris, Russia, and Prague (pics below) during Spring Break, my new city made big news.  What a perfect place for a travel blog. 🙂

    Would love to see Istanbul. Budapest is interesting…basically 2 cities merged.

      I was just at dinner with a friend who LOVES Istanbul and know others who do, too. I have been to Ephesus which I liked but would like to see Istanbul as well. I’m told Budapest is like Prague, which I loved, but with spas and great “gypsy” music– warm people, an affordable place.
