I have set up a page on the wiki devoted to a possible World Tour so  
I can come and meet some of you and say Hi, possibly involving a  
couple of nights on your sofa to see the city/town/village/country  
you live in.

Please could you add some details of where you are (Google Earth  
links might be an idea), when are the best times of year, and stuff  
like that. Your name would be really useful too!

There is a "World Tour" section at the bottom of the front page of There are a few suggested sections in it but  
feel free to do your own thing, just don't delete any real content.

Thanks folks!
