Cities, towns, places you would like to revisit and why

Jump to last reply

As someone who hasn't traveled extensively, I'm curious to know what places touched you in a way that makes you want to return. Sometimes it's not easy to explain, more like just a feeling. Because there are usually other places on our lists to see we're not always able to return, but if you could...

For myself that place is Madrid, surrounding towns and the whole Castilla la Mancha area. I loved the light and the landscape more than I expected, plus I know there was a lot I missed. I know many will disagree with me, but I had high hopes for Barcelona, and while I loved the art nouveau architecture and am glad I saw the city, it didn't move me in the same way and in fact left me pretty cold.

I'd like to see Crete again simply because it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and as corny as this sounds, I felt like I had come home. It's a big island and because of time constraints I didn't get to see nearly as much as I'd have liked.

The purpose of this post is to maybe be enlightened by your answers, myself and fellow Fodorites. There are some things that just can't be found in guidebooks. Looking forward to your answers, thanks!
