Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

For some reason I wasn't expecting to be up today? Oh well. I too will cross that meridian...

I'll draft Valencia 0.3763 W & do a write-up tomorrow probably. There's a daytrip I'll talk about when/if everyone decides against it as a pick.

Valencia falls into my 'nice place but not worth a week' bucket.

Not expecting many to agree with that pick, it's a bucket list thing for me.

I'm sure there are plenty of cool towns and beaches and things around Valencia that would make it more than worthwhile, if my experience in other parts of Spain is any indication

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
13th Stop: MACEDONIA ANCIENT AND MODERN (THESSALONIKI, SKOPJE, AND ENVIRONS), 21.4280 E
14th Stop: KOTOR, MONTENEGRO, 18.7712 E

No reason not to continue in this vein. From everything I've heard, my next stop is unbelievably amazing.

15th Stop: SPLIT AND THE NORTHERN DALMATIAN COAST, CROATIA, 16.4402 E

Yes, this means a month spent going from sun-drenched Greek islands allllll the way to the sun-drenched Adriatic coast (also known as one-eighth of the distance that filthy took in one turn from California to the Maldives), relaxing with ever-changing scenery and history, gorgeous beaches and lakes, amazing food, and delicious wine the whole way. I think I'm okay with that.
