Today's edition of Kotaku Off Topic is kind of a downer—natural disasters and such—making me want to get away from it all. So let's talk about vacations and travel plans.
Most of my traveling is tied to working for Kotaku, flying overseas to Tokyo, Japan and wherever German gaming conventions occur. The free transport is great, allowing me time to take a few days beforehand or afterward to travel on my own time. But I don't think that I've ever taken a non-obligation related vacation. That's gotta change.
So, if you want, talk about your travel plans for 2010, recommendations for getaway spots or places to avoid. Or talk about your topic of choice. Or just enjoy(?) these links.
