We saw a lot in the course of 6 months. And some of these places really impressed us. So let me get my Julie Andrews on because these are a few of my favorite things: 

Favorite country: Bhutan -

Favorite People: New Zealanders (Kiwis), with Bhutanese and Burmese in a tie for a very close 2nd

Favorite Site: Angkor Wat (Siem Reap, Cambodia) and the Moai (Easter Island, Chile) in a close 2nd

Favorite Food Culture: Singapore had a great variety of food options that ranged in price from unbelievably cheap to Michelin 3 star expensive. 

Best farmers market: Margaret River, WA, Australia -

Best Street Food Market: Brisbane, Australia -

Most memorable experience: Witnessing the long-neck women in a small village in Pan Pet, Myanmar switch on a light bulb with constant running electricity for the first time. Previously, they used fire, candles, and in some cases solar power.

Best topography: Cape Town, South Africa

Most well connected to the internet: Australia

Least connected to the internet: Myanmar 

And to change it up a little bit, the things I missed the most were: our dog - Kirby and my Tempur-Pedic pillow

There were so many great sights to see, people we met, experiences had, audible languages, hand gestures, facial expressions, exchanges of ideas, cultural experiences, food journeys, and starry nights. But these were just a few from a laundry list of wrinkles in my mind. 

If I could experience them again, my life would be twice as grand.
