    This question is asked of me quite often. Before being a flight attendant I didn’t have “favorites” because the world is simply too amazing to enjoy just one or a few things. Though, it’s still a fair question. So some of my favorite destinations are Tel Aviv Israel and Istanbul Turkey because of their spiritual serenity. Honolulu Hawaii because of it’s beauty and my great friends who live there. Miami South Beach Florida because of it’s infectious party spirit, white sands, beautiful water and hot guys along with 2 of my very close friends who live there. Southern and Northern California ,my amazing family, so many friends and cherished memories literally in most of it’s cities. New York of course, It’s one of the most unique cities I have been in and cannot really be compared to any place else. The food, the culture, the sky scarpers. Costa Rica from rain forest, to wonderful memories, food, music Purda Vida. Toronto Canada, It’s cleanliness, food and friendly people. London, United Kingdom ,I travel there at least twice a month for work *Hands down some of the best passengers, they say thank you, you’re welcome, take their headphones out and sun glasses off while talking to you, London’s relaxed attitude, easy public transportation and recently good friends I’ve made. Shannon and Dublin Ireland, greenest beauty I’ve seen, again The Irish also some of my best passengers, they know how to party like no one’s business, the guys there are confident and secure. Buenos Aires Argentina for the best meat that I’ve ever tasted, beautiful ranches and great exchange rate. Berlin and Munich Germany for the freest spirit that I’ve ever seen, your U.S. dollar goes far and my cute friends that live there. Innsbruck and Vienna Austria, really authentic, historic, serene beauty of it’s buildings, food, people. Close and dearest friend who lives there. Japan for it’s discipline, it’s people, it’s food and cleanliness.

    Anywhere in The Caribbean for my roots, the beaches, the water, the sand, the delicious food. Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Art Museum area is one of my favorite places to be. Simply relaxing, people outdoor exercising, classic healthy relaxation. Boston Massachusetts, it’s amazingly in shape laid back smart people and beautiful architectural buildings. Barcelona Spain, some of the most beautiful guys and girls I have ever seen, natural beauty and genuine beautiful spirits. Paris France, the most beautiful females I have ever seen, the most romantic city I have ever been to, picturesque buildings, pastries, wines. I look forward to going there one day with a significant other. Pisa Italy for the leaning tower, some of the best Italian food I have ever eaten and young, free spirited people. Austin Texas, my favorite city in Texas, it’s fun, enjoy your time attitude, bars, music scene and food.

    O.K. that’s it for now. As I was putting this together I didn’t realize that I have so many more. ;-). I’ll save them for next time. Love to my friends around the world.

    Orlando, FL and Busan are my 2 favorites....I think I'd consider Wildwood, NJ too because I used to go there in the summers all the time as a kid and would just sit on the beach and gaze out at the ocean.

    I do like Orlando. Affordable and spread out. Haven't been to Busan yet. And although I live in New York city I haven't explored New Jersey much. I do hear the beaches there are nice.

    It's on my list ;-)

    Busan was the most character building for me because I didn't realize just how big the city was and got lost there around 11pm lol I had to use street smarts to figure out how to get to where I needed to be. It was an adventure.

    *Had to look it up

    Busan (Officially Busan Metropolitan City), formerly spelled Pusan[3] (Korean pronunciation: [pusan]) is South Korea's second largest metropolis after Seoul, with a population of around 3.6 million.[1] The Metropolitan area (includes adjacent cities of Gimhae and Yangsan) population is 4,399,515 as of 2010.[4] It is the largest port city in South Korea and the world's fifth busiest seaports by cargo tonnage.[5]

    I'm sure the experience must have been a great one. Ironically my best friend picture album of his recent trip to South Korea is what prompted me to post this forum question.

    Save travels man ;-)

    Chicago and Paris for me.

    For some reason I loved being in Chicago. Even the South side. There is an energy in Chicago that I love.

    Paris is just simply gorgeous. My favorite spot is Monmarte where you can look down on the whole city.

    I haven't really been able to travel much in my life until the last couple of years.

    So, my experience is limited, but I did really enjoy San Antonio (I just visited), Orlando, and Charlotte, NC.

    Guys you got to come check out Cape Town. It has got great people and a mountain in the backyard. With great beaches for a tan but take your own risks when it gets to swimming, gay friendly and with about a hours drive out of town you have three complete different enviroments. Some of the best wines and food can be found here and the local guys are always up for a good time. I've traveled so some other incredible cities but I always come back to Cape Town because it just got the right incredients. ook yip and I'm bias.

    Magnificent Mile downtown Chi town I absolutely love. I had a chance to be there during St. Patrick's Day weekend years ago. Beautiful area, river and bars and clubs. Had my first deep dish pizza there and it was perfect.

    For a peaceful get-away: Zwickau, Saxony, Germany. A small City whose Rush Hour wouldnt make a 'red light' in my home town. But it is close to Leipzig, Dresden, and Prague. The people are sweet and kind. And almost nobody speaks English, so ya gotta practice your German. Ha!

    Although at one time San Francisco would have been at the top of my list, it has been ruined by hookers and homeless people....sleeping in the doorways of stores like Estrada and what used to be I. Magnin. Sad...very sad.
    BUT, other than SF, I can think of no city in this country. Love Paris, Rome, Milan, Nice...and my new soon-to-be home, Stockholm

  • Jul 06, 2012 6:49 PM GMT
    San Fran
    Vancouver
    Rome

    Perfect Threesome ;)

    Saw the earlier post about San Francisco. Unique, iconic, great!!!

    Haven't made it to Vancouver. Heard it's beautiful.

    Rome was my first European city I went to. Incredibly educational and started my Europe fascination.

    *Wow I had to research a bit also GreenHopper

    Willemstad (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈʋɪ.ləm.ˌstɑt]) is the capital city of Curaçao, an island in the southern Caribbean Sea that forms a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Formerly the capital of the Netherlands Antilles prior to its dissolution in 2010, it has an estimated population of 140,000. The historic centre of the city consists of two quarters: Punda and Otrobanda. They are separated by the Sint Anna Bay, an inlet that leads into the large natural harbour called the Schottegat.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Simply gorgeous.

    So much to see all around ZA. So little time.
