    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.

    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!

    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. :rolleyes:

    ^^ :D

    I've got it narrowed down to two:

    [​IMG]
    Monticello.

    [​IMG]
    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? ;)

    But I'm still undecided.

    I'll let you know when I get there.
    I wish I could travel to all star-systems in the whole galaxy, I wish I could see and meet all the marvelous people out there and see if the whole place is like any idea ever depicted in SciFi...

    I give you, an image from the COsmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite, The Milky Way:
