A to Z Blog Challenge Recap

For this year’s A-Z Blog Challenge, I showcased 26 of my favorite places in the world. I didn’t do nearly as much writing for the challenge as I did in previous years, but I had a lot of fun going down memory lane, and I hope I’ve given some readers ideas about wonderful places to visit. I’ve been to 22 of the 196 countries but didn’t manage to feature them all in this year’s blog challenge because some countries have a lot of places that are special to me. And I was constrained by the alphabet!

Countries I’ve Been to that I Didn’t Mention At All

Spain – While there is no one standout in Spain that would make me go visit, if I had to choose a place I’ve visited to live permanently in, it would be Spain.

France – I’ve only been to Paris and hope to visit the countryside and coasts soon.

Canada – I grew up on the Canadian border and have spent a lot of time in Niagara Falls, Toronto, and Montreal. I also went around Nova Scotia with a friend who lives in Glace Bay.

Egypt – To a Russian resort for Christmas. Because why not?
