I fell in love with the coast of California during a visit in 2003, and moved here from the East Coast in 2012. Other favorite places include Andalusia (the southern coast of Spain) because it has an incredible mixture of wild, rugged geography combined with millennia of human history. Buenos Aires is also high on my list; besides being a great city, the dollar exchange rate is still really favorable, and you can stock up on lots of inexpensive, high-quality clothing and household items. I'll never forget the time I schlepped a set of dishes, two Art Deco vases, and a ton of name-brand clothing all the way home from there.
