I Suck At Titles, Especially Unique Ones

Alright, I've been letting this problem get in the way of starting a travel blog too long - the blog name I came up with has already been taken by a score of other blogs. So what do I call the damn thing?
So a combination of starting to do travel writing for realsies combined with re-reading some of my old travel journals has spurred me to try blogging again. I'd post short, quirky literary-type travel stories from trips I've taken, about tiny but cool things - that funky conversation I had with a London cabbie or the time I crashed a radio program in Dublin or dancing the Time Warp with three strangers in a bar during Mardi Gras or the game of charades me and a Roman candy shop owner got into while trying to communicate about hot cocoa.
Originally I was going to riff on Spaulding Gray's observation about trying to have a perfect moment
when you travel, but a shit-ton of other travel bloggers seem to have had the same idea. Which is a shame, as it's exactly the kind of way I wanted to describe these little snips of stories.
I always sucked at coming up with titles anyway, so I'm appealing for help from y'all. Thanks.
