Sacred Journeys and Pagan Pilgrimages

Altair's wonderful TCN blog about his pilgrimage to Iceland [TCN Membership required to view] has me wondering about the place of sacred journeys and pilgrimages on our individual paths.

Are pilgrimages a part of your path? If so, what places call to you- religious places, historically significant places, natural wonders, etc.?

To expand a bit on the topic, what purpose do such pilgrimages serve in a spiritual/religious context? What do you do upon arrival at your destination? Or is the journey itself the important thing? If you've made such a journey, has it changed your perspective or practice in any way? Are there drawbacks or problems associated with making sacred journeys?
