    I will be away for 2 days (business—not pleasure) and will post again over the weekend. In the meantime, I’d love to know where in the world All the Best readers hail from (North America, South America, Europe, Australia…)? I’d also love to hear some of your favourite places to travel.

      I’m based in London (Hoxton to be precise) and if I had limitless funds, would travel the whole of South America, Marrakech and Bali (to see the Batik textiles). I am, however, currently broke, so am limited to a charity trip to Peru in November and that’s it. My favourite places that I’ve been to are Sicily and La Marche in Eastern Italy. Unspoilt, untouched and largely, unintelligible. But then, I love a challenge!!

      I’m in frigid Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I should be in Puerto Vallarta with parents and sister right now – love it there!!!! Bequia is a beautiful island in the carribean that I got to visit once – so breathtaking! Would love to go to Italy – I’m half-Italian and was only there once when I was too small to remember.

      new to your blog! am in a suburb of Hobart in Tasmania in Australia. Have had my very own home for a year and a half, and have “champagne tastes on a beer budget”,and i’m always seeking insipiration — so i love your pics of rooms (as opposed to some blogs that show single items of products only) — i love the whole pic for inspiration.

      I’m American but living in Marrakech. I would love to travel in the Indonesian islands and also go somewhere totally mysterious like Papau New Guinee.

      I was doing a google search today an on Lynn Von Kertsting and your blog came up. I have to say I couldn’t have enjoyed reading ALL of your blogs more. I feel as if we have some many of the same interests. As for travel, anywhere is great. I’ve enjoyed Italy, England and France. I will be visiting Spain this September and hope to one day get to Asia. I hail from Philadelphia PA USA (home of some of your antiques!).

      I live in Texas but spend half the summer in Greece and a good chunk of the rest of it at the South Carolina coast. I also particularly love Italy.

      I am from NJ and live here now after living in DC & NYC.

      I have so many places I’ve been and so many places I would still love to visit. I love and have been to Italy, France, the UK, South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

      I would love to visit Africa & Australia. My dream place I want to see before I die is Tahiti.

      I’m an American living in Paris. My favourite places to travel are Spain (Sevilla and Madrid), San Francisco (I lived there a long time and still miss it) and the Middle East (especially Amman, Petra and Cairo). Am hoping to travel to South America, i.e. Peru and Chile.

      American living in Kyoto, Japan originally from New York City. One of my favorite places to travel is Greece – my family is from the mainland part of Greece, so I have been all over but I look foward to travelling the islands very soon; however, Philippines will be my next stop.

      Hailing from Victoria, BC…
      Some really amazing people from all corners of the globe here! Wow!
      Well, I’ve gone walkabout in Fiji, Mexico, Japan, Australia and New Zealand… loved them all! I really long to go to Europe for a long, long vacation… (sigh)
      From my years of backpacking and travelling about, I have found there is nothing quite like my home sweet home here on the beautiful, rugged west coast of Canada. Afterall, home is where the heart is…
      Love your blog — such a delightful “escape”!

      Namaste (:
