What place lifts your spirits? We asked a group of seasoned travelers to describe their happy places, the destination they conjure in times of trouble. The allure is aesthetic, but it's also emotional. The place is reminiscent of home — or the polar opposite of home. It is exotic — or ordinary. Wherever it is, it beckons these travelers to lay down their burdens and put their cares at bay. Here are their choices. To tell us about yours, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
