Tomorrow, Kotaku does some traveling, with one of us heading to San Francisco to look at video games, one of us heading to New York to look at houses.

I'm the one heading from LAX to SFO, a trip I'll do next week too (for GDC 2011). It's part of the travel associated with the gig. I see San Francisco (as beautifully photographed by Thomas Hawk), Tokyo, Las Vegas and Cologne often. Luckily for me, those are some swell places to travel. What's your travel experience like? Where do you love to go and why?

Let us know in the comments about your vacation plans or simply talk amongst yourselves with this open thread. Or just catch up on the following.
