So I've got this round the world ticket. And I've got a little over 3 weeks to use it. So I want to see as much as I can in the time. But I don't want to blow through places that clearly deserve more time to see. I did that in Vienna and regretted it. So what are the best cities in the world to see for just limited times. As in, VERY worth seeing but spending MORE than two days seems excessive.
Like it says on the box. I'm taking my youngest kid to London for a week in August, we're staying by Gloucester Road tube. Through a miracle of connections, I was able to score us tickets to see Liverpool vs. Stoke but other than that and a show at the Globe, we have no plans. [more inside]
In a week, I'll be heading to Detroit with a few high schoolers as part of my denomination's Youth Gathering. With over 30,000 Lutherans heading to town, my people will be everywhere. However most of our events start after 12 noon, which will leave me and the youth with mornings to kill. What in Downtown Detroit should we see? Where should we eat? What shouldn't two 16 year old guys miss?
At the beginning of August work is sending me to Tokyo for a week, for the first time ever, so my wife is coming out and we're going to steal another week away from the family to have a break. What to do for that extra week when you've never visited Japan before? [more inside]

Sell me Grenoble! I will be in Grenoble for five days, and if I like it enough, I might return for a year or two... [more inside]
The wife and I are heading to San Francisco for a conference this weekend taking place at the Embarcadero Hyatt. My question is a two-parter: (a) Where in the vicinity should we go for breakfast, lunch etc. on our relatively-short breaks? and (b) After things wind down for the day, where should we explore? More criteria to follow. [more inside]

I have a free day in California I wasn't expecting. What can one man do today in, oh, 12 hours? I'm staying in Corona, but I'm willing to travel around and spend some money (up to $200 for argument's sake). [more inside]
Does anyone have any ideas on worthwhile places to visit during my stay in Chisinau, Moldova? I love to see sights and examples of very traditional places, relics of it's ex-Soviet history, etc. Furthermore, are there any bars/restaurants/museums worth visiting during my stay? [more inside]
