What’s Your Favorite Place on Earth?

This is the simple question that award-winning travel writer Jerry Camarillo Dunn asked 75 of the world’s most famous people – from the Dalai Lama to Will Ferrell to Wolfgang Puck. In My Favorite Place on Earth, they tell great personal stories about the places they love most.


Dave Barry: “In these times of international tension, real news professionals disregard their personal safety and head for the world's trouble spots. Thus it was that recently I traveled to the U.S. Virgin Islands, where I faced the very real danger that, as a journalist in the field, many of my expenses would be tax-deductible.

The Virgin Islands are located in the Caribbean, which gets its name from the Indian words “Cari,” meaning “body of water,” and “bbean,” meaning “that makes you really glad your computer has a spell checker.”    

The Virgin Islands were discovered in 1493 by Christopher Columbus, who wisely elected to remain on the ship during the discovery process so as to avoid being turned into Purina Shark Chow by the people who already lived there.”
