My favorite place on earth is the island of Isola Bella in Lake Maggiore, near Stresa, Italy. I wrote about it HERE on this blog a couple of years ago. The gardens are lovely, and the beauty of the mountain views is undeniable.

However, it’s more than beauty that draws me here…it’s the way it makes me feel when I’m there—joyful, loving, peaceful—a place that brings me contentment unlike anywhere else on earth.

What about you? Do you have a place nearby or at a distance that calls to you to visit because it makes you happy and stress-free to be there?

  1. Give me a blue sky, temp around -5°C, min. 1 meter of snow, the Dolomites (Italy), almost no people and a snowboard… That’s heaven on earth for me! 🙂

  2. Your pictures are award winning, IMHO.

    Contentment, any body of water, forest or outside at night contemptible the vast possibilities yet explored.
