As per https://judaism.stackexchange.com/, a "Topic Challenge" appearing every so often to challenge people to ask questions might be a good idea. Are you going somewhere soon? Do you have a topic you'd like to ramp up your tag badges on? Suggest a topic in the answers below, and vote them up or down, and on the weekend we may select one and make it the topic challenge.
The Tiny Countries
- San Marino
- Vatican City
- Marshall Islands
- St. Kitts & Nevis
- St. Lucia
- Antigua & Barbuda
- St. Vincent & Grenadines
World Heritage Sites
I would like to see some great questions about world heritage sites.
Where can we go and do stuff like helping out on farms in Guatemala and tsunami cleanup in Japan etc...
Boost single-use tags
How about an event where we go through our oldest tags that are only applied to a single question and think of at least one more question for each of them?
As a bonus any tags that are too hard to think of more questions for should possibly be discarded or made synonyms of broader tags that would cover them.
Long-distance train journeys
I would like to see some more great questions about traveling long distances with a train, for example the Siberian railway.
Ambiguous place names
This will have the added benefit of helping us fix our policy of how to pick the wording for tags when there's more than one Georgia or Korea in the world.
(Please add any others you can think of, but only of course if they have something to offer tourists/travellers.)
I would like to see some great questions about naturism travel.
River Amazon / River Nile trail
Everything about travelling down the Amazon / Nile from source to where they terminate at sea.
Towns and places worth visiting along US Route 66.
Difficult Places and How To See Them
I mean genuinely difficult for the average traveler, and how to see them without breaking any laws.
For example, visitors to Lascaux are now shunted to a replica, but perhaps it is possible to visit the actual caves by volunteering in the cleanup & restoration effort?
Another example is the stairway of the Washington Monument. It was not publicized, but there were occasional tours where you could ride up on the elevator and descend via the stairs. Unfortunately, that has been discontinued owing to vandalism of the commemorative stones in the stairwell, but at the time when it was an option it would have been a candidate for this category.
Or climbing the Great Pyramid, which used to be illegal but easy to do with a bribe. In more recent years there has been a crackdown on the acceptance of these bribes owing to some climbers falling to their death. But maybe there's a way to legally climb it, complete with safety equipment? I'd sure like to know.
I would like to see some great questions about the Pan-American Highway.
I would like to see some great questions about ecotourism.
I would like to see some more great questions about couch surfing.
I would like to see some more great questions about roadtrips. We have a lot questions for Europe, but Asia or the Americas is not covered yet.
I would like to seem some great questions about trekking.
Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan
Plus the disputed territories, rebel provinces, and exclaves
Abkhazia, Nagorno Karabakh, Naxchivan, South Ossetia
Dagestan, Ingushetia, Chechnya, etc
I would like to see some great questions about disaster tourism.
I would like to see questions about Geoglyphs.
