NYT's 46 places to go in 2013

The Times published their annual list of cities, states, and countries to visit, sending me into a severe state of wanderlust. I've been to a fair number of the 46 spots they highlighted, but would love to one day cross them all off my list! Three spots that caught my eye in particular were #17 the Philippines, #19 the Kimberley region of Australia, and #28 Porto, Portugal. My dad lived in the Philippines for a bit and even did his freshman year of high school in Manila so I'm particularly curious to visit! I simply had to dream up a little kit bag...

I grew up in the Philippines and visited this year (after not making it home for six), so I was thrilled to bits to see this post! You simply must go. The food, weather, shopping, and beaches are all divine. My husband, who had never been, wanted to move after the first day. And this was during typhoon season, mind you!

I was just reading that article! A lot of interesting places on the the list. I hope you get to visit the Philippines some day soon. Great picks for the visit, I love the bag!

I'm so glad you picked Philippines! I'm a native Filipino, however, I'm embarrassed to say that I have not visited a lot of what the country has to offer.
If you do go, I highly suggest visiting Bohol and staying close to Panglao island.

Porto, Portugal is amazing as well! It's a tiny city compared to Lisbon, but it has a lot of personality! The food is delicious as well!
