UNESCO heritage sites - Medieval trade route history for gold, spices, etc... - Cities that inspired myths and legends - Ancient literature recounting the knowledge of scholars from times gone by. Have a guess? If you give up, you can always click here for the answer: http://bit.ly/cY6lak

We go to find the Govenator of Kahl-ee-for-nya and go on a long hike. Today's trip report is from capitol of the Golden State, Sacramento. See why it pays to find your duly elected representatives at The World on Wheels: http://tinyurl.com/2wyzzvq

Just visited a WWII museum in Carrabelle Florida dedicated to the training that took place here on the beaches for the invasion of Normandy. Some incredibly rare items, include one of those infamous GI candy bars, and other items less pleasant about WWII. Camp Gordon Johnson is thename of it. I highly recommend it.

Teddy Roosevelt (or maybe his doppelganger) visits his pal Gifford Pinchot, founder of the U.S. Forestry Service, tomorrow, April 25th, from 4:30-7 p.m., at Pinchot's idiosyncratic chateau, Grey Towers, in Milford, PA. They'll talk, but they will not drink; T.R. knew that Pinchot, despite his many virtues, was a teetotaler. http://bit.ly/b6Vgw7

Yeah, I know Colonial Williamsburg is a little, shall we say, ersatz, but it is history-themed, so I thought I'd throw this out there anyway, just in from my contacts there:

"For just $599 plus tax, a family of four can experience a five-day, four-night Colonial Williamsburg vacation worth over $1,000. The Summer Saver is available for Sunday and Monday check-in for stays May 31-September 3, 2009 and includes:

-Four nights' accommodations in a standard room at the Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites, an official Colonial Williamsburg hotel located at the Visitor Center gateway to the Historic Area.
-Daily breakfast in the hotel.
-Length-of-visit admission passes providing unlimited come-and-go access to Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area.
-$200 "resort credit" which may be applied toward meals in any of the Colonial Williamsburg restaurants or taverns, golf at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, services at The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, or other resort recreational fees.
-20% discount on most purchases at any Colonial Williamsburg-owned store."
