One of the playbookers responded, and a few weeks later I found myself sharing a bed with a complete stranger. For my entire time in Athens, I found myself hanging out with this "complete stranger", in whom I eventually found a kindred spirit. We spent weekends exploring Greece, visiting underground bars that hid an exhibition space, jazz festivals and outdoor film screenings.

  137. One of our goals during our stay in Paris was to wander randomly and explore different parts of the city. We decided to take the RER C commuter rail line to its end destination- the suburb of Dourdan. As we got closer and closer to the end of the line, the train got emptier and emptier. After about 45 min, at the second to last stop, all the remaining passengers evacuated. When we reached the final stop, we realized that the doors would not open and we were stuck on the train. Turns out, the last stop was not a real stop, but where the train turns around and resets.  Fortunately for us, we didn't have to wait long for the conductor to pass by outside and beg him to help us.

Not only were the views amazing, but the park which contained the trail preserved some of the original buildings to show the impact of volcanoes and mudslides.  -Anthony, Lake Toya, Hokkaido, Japan
  195.  
  196. Yosemite is worth. VERY worth. But it might be tough when you don't actually live inside CA and have a car. That being said, if you do plan on going, make reservations super early and don't expect to get into Camp 4 (the most desirable of all first-come first-served camps). Camp 4 will fill up basically right around 6 AM (i.e. there will be too many people in the line by 6 AM), but if you make that mistake then feel free to stop by Porcupine Flats, which ended up working for us. (But yes, if you want to see the valley, make a reservation or arrive at like, 5 AM.) Like a FOP trip, but better.   -Kit, Yosemite Valley, CA
