Tania Elosegui

I really like Australia. I like the lifestyle and the people are great fun. I also love Italy. I think it's the most beautiful country I've ever visited. It has everything: culture, beautiful sights to see, mountains, sea, good food, great people, and a variety from north to south. But I still have a lot of places in my mind I want to go to and get to know better.

Back home to Idaho. It's always nice to go home :)
M.J. Hur
South Korea
New York City. There is a lot of good shopping, and I believe New York is the center of the world.
Mindy Kim
United States
I like to stay home just because I'm on the road most of the time.
Jeehae Lee
South Korea
That's a tough one. I love Thailand's Phuket and its surrounding islands for their food, beautiful beaches, and colorful marine life, but I'm a city girl at heart, and Hong Kong, to me, is the ultimate city to visit. It's got the gorgeous, ultra-modern skyscrapers, work-hard play-harder culture that I love, great ethnic diversity, awesome high-end and bargain shopping, and a totally hip, non-stop nightlife. Oh, and did I mention the food? Mmmm...
Stacy Lewis
United States

I love to travel anywhere I have never been. I just like seeing and visiting new places.

Mika Miyazato
Japan
California, because I have some great memories from when I won the junior championship in San Diego.
Anna Nordqvist
Sweden
I love to travel to new places where I haven't been before, because I like new experiences, and I like to see different parts of the world.
Angela Oh
United States

Probably New York City, because everything is within walking distance... and all the shopping!

Sunny Oh
United States
Lanai, Hawaii, because I went there for my honeymoon.
Shiho Oyama
Japan
Niagra Falls and the Grand Canyon. I've always wanted to visit those two places.
Pornanong Phatlum
Thailand
I like to go to the beach because I come from the eastern part of Thailand, which doesn't have any beach.
Samantha Richdale
Canada
My favorite place to travel is in the Canadian Rockies. The views are beautiful with mountains, lakes, and wildlife.
Jessica Shepley
Canada
The beach - ocean.
Jiyai Shin
South Korea
It would be European countries. I like historical buildings and streets. I look forward to traveling to Europe someday.
Nontaya Srisawang
Thailand
Korea, because I like their food and Korean drama.
Kim Welch

I love traveling in general and exploring new places, but I love, love, love my home state of California.
