Anything better from our more well-travelled palimpians?

Ooooh, this could be fun!

Oxford
London
Edinburgh
Glasgow
Bristol
Dundee
Rome
Orvieto (though that may be a town. Not sure)
Ahmedabad
Udaipur
Delhi
Chandigarh (It's the state capital of Punjab, but again I think it may be a town)
Budapest

Not as many as I thought I'd have, actually, but I'm very pleased with the Indian ones - I'm still sorting out and uploading my photos from there!

Cambridge
Oxford
St. Louis, MO
Paducah, KY but I'm fairly sure that's a town.

That's it I think. I can't really count Detroit as I only changed planes there. God, I need to get out more!

I'm pretty sure that's it. I should say, travel is something I am less and less interested in as I get older and I would happily never get on a plane again.
