How about reserving space on the space shuttle! Now that would be a great way to welcome in the new century. We could explode space debrie for the fireworks. Maybe we should go "all out" - how about the Moon or Mars or sailing out of our solar system!
Back down to Earth, I would like to suggest reserving a cruise ship headed for the Great Barrier Reef or froliking on the Great Wall of China or maybe climbing to the base camp of Mount Everest.
