The Improper may be all about Boston, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to get out and stretch our legs. Since Sightings began in 1998, globe-trotting readers have taken us on vacations, business trips and even to their own weddings, posing everywhere from the Sahara Desert to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, from Caribbean cruises to war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. We’ve even met a few celebrities along the way. Check out some of the sights we’ve seen, and be sure to keep us in mind for your next trip. (Don’t worry, we pack light.)
