Geek Travel Tips. They asked "celebrity geeks" (ooh, how do I become one of those?!) to supply their best travel tips, then put them together for us all to enjoy.
The geek travel tips include some bizarre museums and truly geeky places (a Yoda fountain in San Francisco and the Rancho Obi-Wan are included for Star Wars freaks - I'm not one of those!). The Ghibli Museum in Japan sounds like quite an experience and its website describes it as a "portal to a storybook world" - where you, the museum visitor, are the main character. Oh, and they have a giant robot on the roof - you can have your picture taken with him. For non-queasy geeks then the Muetter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia may be your thing - sounds perfect for anyone who loves watching medical dramas on TV. For those who loved Lord of the Rings (I just couldn't get into it, sorry) they include New Zealand on the list, but for the ultimate geek-fest I think you have to go to the building where "an incredible 10 chemical elements were discovered"! - the Royal Institution in London. I'm a little bit sad that they left cool libraries off the list, but hopefully by the time they make another one I may have been promoted to a celebrity geek and they can ask me for my advice, too.
Got any nerdy spots you've loved visiting around the world? Give me some tips in the comments and I'll be sure to add them to my list ... if they're geeky enough!
