I see what you did there.
I visited Moscow and Leningrad, as it was then, on a school trip in 1987. Looking back, the timing was interesting, as the USSR was more open to tourists by then but was still a communist country. We went in March, which baffled the hell out of our fellow Canadian students, as we were going to the only country that was colder than where we lived.
My absolute favourite place is the Penwith region
in the far southwest of England in the Duchy of Cornwall. My husband first took me there before we were married and I'd moved to England. The scenery in Penwith is incredible, and the sea is so blue. We don't normally go to Penzance (yes, as in Pirates of), but stick to the smaller villages and rural areas with its ancient stone circles and standing stones. I'm not much of a spiritual person, but there's something about the place that gets into your soul.
