One of the most common questions we get is, "Where's been your favourite place so far?" 

It depends. The best place for food? Most culturally intriguing? Wildest scenery? Weirdest night out? Best beach? Truth be told, we love most places, which is how we ended up there in the first place! There will likely be a different answer for each and just like most stable, healthy, totally normal marriages, we ferociously disagree on most. 

But if we must.
