Small Surprises

Whatever happened to mystery flights? You know, you'd pay a hundred bucks, turn up at the airport, and they'd fly you somewhere random. Ten years ago, everyone was doing mystery flights. They were so exciting. Now I never hear about them. I guess nowadays not knowing where or when exactly the airline is going to fly you somewhere is part of the standard package.

BADOOMTISH! Thank you, thank you. Anyway, the point is that the Regions and Nations pages now have a "Surprise Me" button, perfect for those times you want to visit someplace but don't care where. It will show you a randomly selected region or nation. Maybe even your own! That would be like the most disappointing mystery flight ever. But in this context, kind of eerily cool.
