Despite injury limiting his tour appearances to just a single non-Test fixture against the Cheetahs, the Welsh youngster will forever remember his time with Britain and Ireland's elite.
"It was just a dream come true that I've managed to put on the Lions jersey," said Halfpenny, who only made his senior Wales debut in November of last year.
"I could never have expected it at the start of last season.
"I wasn't out there long and it was the best two weeks of my life - just incredible playing and training with players that I've looked up to since I was a young age."
Australia is the next destination in four years time and Halfpenny will be doing all he can do be on the plane and in the Test team in 2013.
"It's [touring Australia with the Lions] got to be a goal, an ultimate goal now to pull on that jersey more than once," added Halfpenny.
"So I've got to try and improve my game... and just play the way I play and keep improving.
"Every rugby player's dream is to play in a Test for the Lions. I've had a taste of it so I want another bite of the cherry."
