What is your favorite travel destination?
#1: This may seem kind of weak, but if I’m being completely honest, I think my current favorite travel destination is West LA. I love the weather. I love the hotels I stay in. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the food. I wish I had more West coast conferences and fewer East coast ones (though thankfully the food has gotten better in the main place I go on the East Coast). LA just makes me happy. And West LA is surprisingly walkable. I’m sure there are places in Europe that are lovely, but I have not presented at several overseas conferences because I just don’t want to spend all that time on the plane. Flights to LA are much more reasonable. Plus my favorite bakery in the part of Northern California where I conference the most went out of business. :(
Grumpy nation, where you do like to travel best?
