Traveling the world is not pure fun and adventure. Before you set out for your vacation, you need to plan your itinerary, book the necessary accommodations, purchase your plane tickets, pack your belongings, make the necessary arrangements for your house cat, remind your boss that you’ll be out of range for the next couple of days, etcetera. American citizens who like to shuffle around the world have no trouble going through foreign borders. But for a lot of other travelers out there especially those who are coming from developing countries, the fate of your planned holiday can sometimes rest solely on the acquisition of a visa. It doesn’t matter how much planning goes into your holiday, or the fact that you have an unlimited budget on the ready; if you can’t get a visa, you can pretty much set your sights on another destination and hope to have as much fun there.

Last year marked the International Year of Astronomy which encouraged everyone including the non astronomers who had an interest in the workings of the vast cosmos to rediscover and get to know better the wonders floating about in the deep night sky. This year, we figure it isn’t too late for those who didn’t get the chance last year to go stargazing and see some heavenly bodies up close. After all, the sky will always be up there and it doesn’t seem like the stars are going anywhere. We also think that catching up on some stargazing and refreshing our memories on the constellations is the perfect excuse to pack our bags and travel somewhere fun.
