We'll revisit this towards end, because I could think of a load of ways in which it doesn't work out quite as simply as this.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

I had so much fun in Tokyo. Time for another giant capital.

Pick #4: Seoul (126.4400)

Not as well-known as Tokyo, but every bit as intriguing. So many sights in and around the city.

Gyeongbokgung Palace:


Bongeunsa Temple:


Namdaemun Gate:


Day trip to the DMZ:


I'll be stuffing my face with bulgogi:


And listening to K-pop:

OK after LA, Tahoe, and Fiji, we need big cultural cities.

Hong Kong

Well, this round is just a disaster. Hong Kong, Bali and Maldives all at the top of my list.

Enjoy your Strawberry Quik!

btw, the native Seychelles workers are super-oppressed and exploited by the resort you'll be staying in, like more so than normal

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Starting Point: LAS VEGAS 115.1398 W

Pick 1: ALASKA 149.4937 W
Pick 2: TUVALU 177.6493 E
Pick 3: VLADIVOSTOK 132.0065 E
Pick 4: FUKUOKA 130.4017 E

So I'm going to Japan. I'm going for the cultural experience and the food. I don't need to be in Tokyo, Fukuoka has all that I want.

It's further west than the other drafted Japanese places and also further from them them than they are to each other and so I don't think I'm infringing on anyone's vacation spot here.


It has all the Japanese things that you could imagine.
Fast Modern City Life:



The Beach:



Traditional Japanese sights:




Local market food which I'm sure is cheap and awesome:


I googled "sushi Fukuoka" and this came up:

Looks pretty incredible to me.

Also I'm only a 2 hour train ride from Hiroshima where I'm sure to want to visit for at least a full day.

Japan here I come!!

I've only ever been to Tokyo, but it is ridiculously amazing.
