Over the years, I have written frequently about what makes a destination worth exploring. And, if we’re truly honest, the trio of Wine, Cheese and History pretty much sums it up. If you can find a destination with all three, you should stay there.

You don’t need me to tell you the COVID-19 pandemic has been disheartening. As someone who loves to travel and explore, it’s made me think about the places I’ve visited, the people I’ve encountered over the years and the experiences I’ve enjoyed.
