Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Starting Point: LAS VEGAS 115.1398° W
1st Stop: CENTRAL CALIFORNIA COAST 122.0308° W
2nd Stop: SOUTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND 169.8926° E
3rd Stop: KYOTO, JAPAN 135.7680° E
4th Stop: HANOI, VIETNAM 105.8342° E
5th Stop: LUANG PRABANG, LAOS 102.1347° E
6th Stop: CHIANG MAI, THAILAND 98.9817° E
7th Stop: MANDALAY PROVINCE, MYANMAR 96.0891° E
8th Stop: KERALA, INDIA 76.2711° E
9th Stop: KASHMIR REGION, INDIA/PAKISTAN 74.7973° E
10th Stop: SHIRAZ, IRAN 52.5837° E
11th Stop: TBILISI AND KAKHETI REGION, GEORGIA, 44.8271° E
12th Stop: DODECANESE AND NORTH AEGEAN ISLANDS, GREECE, 28.2176° E

Since xander thwarted my Botswana plan, I might as well trace a logistically natural route. Having travelled south to north in the Aegean Sea enjoying the sights and pleasures of manifold Greek islands, I will make port in Thessaloniki, 22.9444° E, cultural center of Greece, and proceed from there through the ancient kingdom of Macedonia to Skopje, 21.4280° E, modern-day Macedonian capital, which I will use as my base to explore that beautiful, beautiful region.

13th Stop: MACEDONIA ANCIENT AND MODERN (THESSALONIKI, SKOPJE, AND ENVIRONS), 21.4280° E

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

I might be taking this one pick too early, but I’m going to be a sad panda if I wait and it’s gone. So since people are in places like Barcelona and Scotland, I’m making the jump. I’ve promised myself (and my wife) that this would be our next big trip together. I really hope it’s soon.

Pick #13:
Spoiler:


OMFG MEAT:

Spoiler:


Yeah, I’ll probably gain a few pounds here.

I guess I can try my hand at tango to work off some calories:
Spoiler:


But after that….MORE MEAT:
Spoiler:


…okay you get the point.

In between all my asadoing, I’ll be seeing the sights.
Spoiler:


And maybe even a sunset :

Spoiler:


I’m skipping over a few things I want, but it’s worth it to lock this up.

I really wanted this one, but you have more attachment to it, so this is a utilitarian outcome

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Yeah, I've stopped promising a time for writeups, but they are coming. I have a pretty good idea what I want to do there, I doubt it's for everyone but it fits me pretty well.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

To be fair, a couple of friends in mind lived in Zurich for six months for work and really liked it; they said you could take a train from the city center and in 20 minutes be at a ski slope ready to hop on the lift

(Eating out was hellaciously expensive, tho)
