Do something outrageous – like visit your favorite famous-person to help him/her celebrate a birthday! The birthday has already passed? Please – it’s never too late for cake.
But if this seems a tad stalker-ish to you, then how about visiting the city he or she is associated with? Some ideas to get you started (and how to find cheap flights, below):
Aug. 3 – Tony Bennett: By now, even he probably thinks he lives in San Francisco
Aug. 5 – Neil Armstrong: First he went to Purdue, and later the moon – unfortunately, there are no moon flights, so head Indianapolis (well, it’s close to Purdue) and pretend you see craters
Aug. 15 – Napoleon: Soldier, emperor, megalomaniac – hey, any excuse to party in Paris
Aug. 16 – Madonna: She’s on her Sticky & Sweet tour – if you don’t catch her at the final stop in Tel Aviv, just wait for 2010′s tour– or 2011′s — or 2012′s…
Aug. 16 – Steve Carell: I don’t know where the actor lives but Michael Scott is King of Scranton
Aug. 17 – Davy Crockett: we’ll never forget him or the Alamo (which, in case you’ve forgotten, is in San Antonio)
How to get to these cities cheaply? 1) Go to FareCompare’s deal finder. 2) Add your departure city and destination. 3) Add the month you want to travel and your price limit; 4) Click the “Find My Deal” button – and get ready to blow out some candles.
