I used to be on travel every Christmas break for the past 25 years of my life. In 2020, I will spend the whole season at home, thus I scheduled some good readings. While doing that, before buying new books, I re-explored my own home library to check if there still was some unread book and I bumped into 2 books I read a while ago and which helped me focusing on some issues that also impacted on my "travel destination" choice making process.
When thinking about travelling, each place has a value. Be it big or be it small, it's just up to our perception of it and how much it impacted on out lives. Therefore I decided to pair precious stones to each continent, based on my personal perception of them. It's not a scoring of possible travel destinations but the impressions I got after exploring quite a big portion of this planet.
To be on my travel bucket list a place must offer outstanding culture, unique natural features and landscapes, memorable food and welcoming people. To be honest with you I have been very lucky so far at travels as such ingredients always mixed well in every trip of mine.
