I found a "random number generator" and a list of US cities by population, put the two together & Columbus came out on top - so at some point over the next year, I have to go there. Advice? Best time to go? Care to join?

Most Memorable Travel Experience
Living in Krakow September 2007 - February 2009!


Europe in summer 2006, the whole trip, but I'll mention three experiences that deal with "the night":

3) Walking around in Transylvania, alone, in the middle of the night, and noticing the bats flying around the gothic church from the 1300s that I was walking past.

2) Staying up all night in Vienna, wandering the streets, taking it all in.

1) With a friend, walking down the mountains in Zakopane ... after sunset ... pitch black for much of it!
If in your blogs you have a picture of a vehicle's license plate, a toilet or beer, I'll probably smile at it! :D
