I'm taking an informal poll today. Like so many others I've dreamed of traveling the world and visiting the plethora of exotic locales so unlike my own. The list of places I'd go is too long to type because in real life I've visited only four other countries, including a weekend jaunt to our Canadian neighbor.
In the grand scope of things, four isn't so bad. There are many people in the US who will never leave this country once. But I still dream. If I had a magic wand and could travel anywhere in the world tomorrow, the decision over which place to choose first would be difficult.
I might as well choose on the basis of romance. Romance is a darn-right respectable motivation for a grand trip. But what is the most romantic city in the world? Paris? Venice? Or perhaps an island destination? If the lottery fairy visits me as I sleep, I'd book my trip ASAP. I need a plan just in case and would appreciate feedback to help me make my choice.
So where do you vote for as the most romantic international travel destination?
