Best Geek Vacations

Hats off to Wired Magazine for always looking out for their own.

The Best Geek Vacation Destinations is a short article in this month’s issue (July) that points the nerds amongst us towards holiday locations where they can really embrace their inner geek.

As you might suspect, there is not a single beach location amongst the lot. Instead, Wired gives the nod to places like the Sidi Driss Hotel in Matmata, Tunisia (above) which doubled as Luke Skywalker’s home planet of Tatooine. Or, the editors suggest trying out Cern, Switzerland –- home to the 17-mile long Large Hadron Collider. And of course, what geek wouldn’t have Silicon Valley on their short list of exciting vacation destinations?
