ENTER | Misc. Avatar Contest | Travel Wishes

These week’s theme is: travel wishes. What would be your dream trip?

Examples: visit the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, go on a LOTR tour in New Zealand, watch the Northern light in Lapland.

Standard rules apply, under 150x150 pixels and 140KB.

Nice theme. Suddenly, I've got this song in my head.

Aruba, Jamaica, o I wanna take ya ...

Nonetheless, I'd actually like to visit Tokyo at some point.

Two minutes after the thread posting is a speed that's tough to beat, if an avatar I already had is eligible for the contest. Is it?

I want to advise people that, much like real stargazing, the experience of my avatar is very sensitive to ambient light. If you haven't seen it in the dark, I recommend it.

1) Make sure you pack plenty of SPF 1E+18 for your trip to the sun.

2) Is that Pluto in the upper right? Their tourism industry has really taken a hit since their demotion from planetary status. I'm sure they'll appreciate your visit!

Are you speaking from experience, captrek?

1) No. I'm waiting for somebody to invent SPF 1E+18.

2) Again, no. This is just what I've heard. Last time I was on Pluto it was still a planet.

Same here. The passport requirements have completely changed and the list of required immunizations is twice as long. Thank you, International Astronomical Union.

^^

I've got it narrowed down to two:


Monticello.


Or Arecibo.

I'll decide at the last minute, I suppose, but input is welcome.

As a non-American I'd choose the second trip, but I think the picture in your first avatar is nicer.

Not much of a help, am I?
