Charles Lindbergh sometimes gets credit for being the first person to fly across the Atlantic, but he wasn't. That accomplishment was recorded in 1919. Lindbergh was the first to fly nonstop from New York to Paris, without landing in places like Newfoundland, Ireland or the Azores. But a trip even more amazing and three years before Lindbergh's began 80 years ago. And it was barely 20 years after the Wright brothers flew 120 feet. On April 6, 1924, four U.S. Army open-cockpit biplanes took off on an attempt to fly around the world.

Jerome "Jerry" Lamprecht, an award-winning civil engineer who pulled off a daring around-the-world solo flight, died Friday in a fall from a tractor at a friend's farm in Fallston. He was 77. Mr. Lamprecht, a resident of Bare Hills in Baltimore County, was known for his seemingly insatiable desire to test the limits of his skills as an engineer and pilot -- as well as an equally uncanny ability to survive occasional crashes, said a daughter, Lisa Sechler of Crofton. Born in Utica, N.Y., Mr. Lamprecht learned to fly during World War II, when he entered the Navy after graduating from high school.

People always ask me how I decide where to go. I read, I see movies, I stare at maps, I dream. In doing so, I arrived at these 10 places that are tops on my list for 2009. Some are old favorites that are newly affordable. Others have a particular reason to shine this year or suddenly are being talked about by well-traveled people I know. A few are raw, off-the-beaten-track destinations that I doubt can long remain untransformed by globalization. Money's tight, so I know I won't get to them all. But tough times have forced travel providers to reduce prices, meaning that now might be the time to take the grand tour.
