What's your favorite destination and why? I am positively in love with Peru. The people are the most kind, genuine people I have ever met. They are so proud of their culture and really enjoy sharing that with others. Life in Peru is slower, dinners last longer, the focus of life is enjoyment regardless of your status. Besides the people, the country itself is gorgeous, forested mountain, high country deserts and dense rainforests. Every type of landscape all in one place! Lastly, the cuisine is incredible! Alpaca, anyone?
