Yes, I’m Canadian (favourite vs. favorite, sorry to offend American eyes

I’ve been reading some of the lists of favourite places, and it got me thinking of some of the places I’ve enjoyed. And I have to say what really makes a place memorable for me are the people I am there with or that I meet there. The girl I met and flirted madly with in Paris. (To no avail.) The Brits I met in a sauna in Gargellan, Austria. The mad Germans I rambled around central Texas with. Skiing with my step-dad on deserted slopes in Switzerland.

What makes a place special for everyone else? Is it what you see (architecture, museums)? Or is it who you meet?

Just a thought.
