Name three places on your bucket list to travel to and why.

Ah, this is a tough one! My bucket list has over 20 different destinations, but if I were to list just three I would say:
1. Guam: an island in the middle of nowhere with amazing beaches, who wouldn’t go there?
2. Jordan: ancient ruins of Petra, just look it up!
3. Cuba: in love with the culture, the people, the music… honestly everything!

What is your favorite restaurant, coffee shop, or place to visit in Charlottesville?
