Offbeat Traveler: Reader summer vacation destinations

In the spring, we asked readers to send us photos of their summer vacation. So far, they've responded with hundreds of images taken from around the world. In September, we'll choose about half-a-dozen of our favorites for our "What You Did on Your Summer Vacation" issue. In the meantime, we've pulled a few photos highlighting some of the out-of-the-ordinary destinations readers have visited this year, including a fairy-tale-like town in southeast Italy, Africa's southernmost tip and a church over 100 years in the making.
