Nick Baker is planning to travel from internet café to internet café all around the world.

He’ll be visiting a worldwide web of destinations - talking to people in each cafe to find out why they're there and who they're communicating with online.

He plans to turn their virtual communication into reality by travelling to meet the person at the other end of the email.

It is a journey that will connect people, stories and places.

Nick will be starting his travels at the end of October in London, at the geographically 'first' internet cafe in the world - zero longitude in Greenwich.

But Nick wants your help to decide his future destinations.
