The top two questions I'm asked as a travel writer are, "What's your favorite place in the world?" (Ebey's Prairie, located about 20 minutes from my home on Whidbey Island) and, "You're never home, how often do you travel?" The second is a little trickier, as my travel schedule varies from year to year. Looking back on 2013, I was on the road 100 nights. Some of the destinations, such as Maui and the Adriatic, were with my favorite travel partner -- who also happens to be my husband! But for many of the getaways, I was on my own. Here are a dozen trips for 2014 based on my favorite adventures from last year. Bon Voyage!
