Feeling a Little Travel-Jaded? Suffering From Been There/Done That?

To chase away those blase´ blues, here’s three travel junkie shots in the arm to liven things up:

1. Iceland

For all you party-animals who really like to make a night of it:

Midsummer will arrive in Iceland on June 21st, 2007, under a sun that never sets. Its proximity to the Arctic Circle makes for 24 hours of daylight on the longest day, with the sun never dipping beneath the horizon. There is no dusk from 23 May to 23 July. Visit: www.visiticeland.com.

2. Japan

Beauty and speed:

Formula 1 racing returns to Toyota’s Fuji Speedway for the first time in almost 30 years between September 28-30, 2007. Located at the foot of the majestic Mt. Fuji, the circuit makes a stunning backdrop to the world-class show. Established four decades ago, Fuji Speedway reopened in 2005, following a major refurbishment, and won the bid to become the new host of the Formula One Grand Prix in Japan. Visit: www.jtbuk.com.

3.USA : Washington, DC

Was it Mr. Mustard in the library with the lead pipe?

The International Spy Museum in Washington, DC has launched Operation Spy, where participants in assume the role of U.S. intelligence officers on an intrigue-filled international mission. The hour-long experience combines live-action, video, themed environments, special effects, and hands-on activities to create a series of reality-based challenges where guests “think, feel, and act? like real intelligence officers in the field.
