“Tirana is a spot I’d love to take a look at.

São Paulo, Brazil

Istanbul, Turkey / Turkiye
“Some of the mystical cities on the planet, Istanbul’s greatness is aware of no borders: it has districts in Europe and Asia, with the previous’s imperial Balkan appeal usually overlapping with the latter’s Anatolian-oriental aptitude.

I wish to go to whereas it’s nonetheless inexpensive and earlier than it will get too in style.”
Yellowstone Nationwide Park
“Yellowstone is one among my absolute favourite locations on the planet – with the rainbows, effervescent scorching springs, herds of bison roaming free, and seemingly infinite expanses of wilderness, it’s at all times felt magical to me. There are additionally so many issues to do and see there (and within the border communities, like catching a film on the IMAX theatre over in West Yellowstone!), I really feel prefer it by no means will get previous.”
“Over the previous 12 months, I’ve volunteered with a bunch that helps asylum seekers and refugees in my neighborhood.
