Actually, there are a ton of countries I'd like to visit (and can someone, please tell me, how do you save for that and plan for a family???) Some places on my bucket list include Chile, Peru, China, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Australia, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Greece - Yeah, I realize, at this point, I'm talking out of my ass - Oh, and maybe even Morocco because (obviously) the surf there is supposed to be insane. Plus, if I can get the same deal that Carrie Bradshaw scored on these comfy-domfy, moroccan slippers, well shoots, I'm there!
Okay, because we all know I'm not a billionaire, here are three countries that are on my list of places to visit in the hopefully-maybe, very near future and the reasons why. (Yeah, I know, New Zealand and Japan are expensive as hell, so if anyone has any helpful tips they have to make it more affordable, please feel free to share).
surf · rich, colorful culture, sacred sites and temples · alluring beauty
surf · toro nagashi / bon festival (japanese lantern festival) · famed japanese gardens
surf · it's like a giant big sur on steroids, and then some
Where would you go? And if any of you have any surf / travel tips to share with me or other posters, please spread the love...xoxoxo
