Favorite places I've traveled to recently are Panama and Thailand. I like trying to experience the street/local culture as much as possible, rather than staying at shmancy hotels and eating at 5 star restaurants. I would definitely risk stomach problems to get a taste of Bangkok street food (worth it!).
Attracted to beach/surf destinations, and also to places with music festivals. Loving Coachella, hoping to check out Burning Man and Ultra Music Festival (hopefully one day in Brazil!).
