What are some date-limited natural events worth traveling to?

I'm not going anywhere for a good while, of course, but I'm dreaming of traveling again at sometime in the next few years. I'm interested in natural phenomena worth seeing that happen on a specific schedule or within a relatively limited time span. [more inside]

Solo Writing Retreat Location in SF Bay Area?

I would love to hear recommendations for places I should look for cabins/homes/guesthomes I might like for a two week stay sometime next month (December) around San Francisco. I have a car and I'm happy to drive anywhere with 3-4 hours of the city. Could be coastal or forested, but I do need internet access. Hot tub would be great but definitely not a requirement!

Is Thanksgiving day a good time to fly?

Headed to New Haven for...pizza. What else?

Staying overnight in New Haven tomorrow, coming from NYC. Primary reason for visit is to try their pizza, after having New Haven pizza in another city I want to go to the source. I'm not sure what COVID restrictions are like there, but what would be some fun things to do? It looks like a nice town to explore on foot, and I won't have a car but will be staying in the center of the city in a hotel. I like to walk around and explore architecture, take photos, etc. Would also love it if there's an amazing local coffee shop to check out. For pizza (no cheese), I've been told that Frank Pepe's is the spot. So just anything interesting in general that a solo traveler can fill a day with. Thanks!

Virtual tour guide?

Random Streetview on the Finnish coast?

I was procrastinating on Random Streetview yesterday, and landed in this gorgeous spot in Finland that, much to my dismay, I can't find again. I wish I had clicked "save this view," but alas. It's also not in my browser history. This seems impossible, but I wonder if I can describe it well enough that anyone would recognize the location. [more inside]
