Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?  When I was a teenager, my brother and I would go visit my dad in New York City.  We would go into the city for adventures, and we would always end up visiting the World Trade Center. On one particular visit, my brother and I went out on the observation deck. It was so clear — and a nice sunny day. I stayed up there for about an hour just looking out to sea and trying to point out all of the boroughs. It was just a special time for me.
