I Want To Go To There: Dismaland

Whoa, all of a sudden I’m not bored with Banksy anymore: The well-hyped street artist has created a huge public installation called Dismaland, a theme park occupying an abandoned seaside resort in Weston-Super-Mare in the UK.
It’s a riff on Disneyland, obviously, and is as sort of gruesome and gloomy as the

I Want To Go To There: Lake Superior’s Otherworldy Ice Caves

Over the weekend, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore ice caves in northern Wisconsin opened to guests for the first time this year – an increasingly rare treat as climate change alters temperature patterns. Before last year, the ice caves hadn’t been open since the winter of 2009! The 12-mile stretch of caves, made of sandstone…

Travel Porn: 13 B&Bs Surrounded By Fall Foliage

It’s that time of year again when our formerly lush, green trees explode into the kinds of oranges, reds and yellows that are too beautiful to possibly last year-round. Fall foliage is the perfect excuse to spend a weekend in the middle of nowhere soaking in all those bright colors, or at least to daydream…

New Item For Your Bucket List: An Ocean Massage

Floating in a calm ocean is super relaxing. And getting a massage is blissful. But what if you could do both at the SAME TIME?? Now you can, thanks to the One & Only Resort on Australia’s Hayman Island. The resort opens in July, and One & Only’s spa is offering a pretty drool-worthy incentive…

I Want To Go To There: Bali’s Glass-Bottomed “Shrimp House” Hotel

I would stay at a hotel called “Shrimp House” even if it was a dump, just because I think the name is funny (and the chance to steal a robe emblazoned with the words “Property Of Shrimp House” is too good to pass up), but in this case the funny name accompanies a truly stunning…

I Want To Go To There: The Sparkling Turquoise Pool Hidden Underneath Paris

This serene scene isn’t a buried relic from the Roman Empire or a magical underground fairy beach (which was my first thought, honestly), it’s actually a reservoir buried under one of the busiest, most crowded cities in the world. Built in 1874, the tank lies undisturbed beneath the streets in the south of Paris, and…

I Want To Go To There: Tamri, Morocco, Where Goats Climb Trees

I remember a few years ago when argan oil was first becoming a hot new beauty trend in the states, my boss at the time said, “You know where argan oil comes from, right? Goat poop.” Of course, I initially wrote her off as a goat poop conspiracy theorist, but it’s true. Goats in Tamri,…

I Want To Go To There: Dog Bark Park, A B&B Shaped Like A Giant Beagle

I’ve always been a little jealous of movie characters who get to spend any amount of time in a comically large animal’s stomach. When Pinocchio got swallowed by that whale, I was like, “Damn, that looks so cozy in there! I would never leave.” I never thought I’d get to live out my weird fantasy,…

Travel Porn: The Northern Lights Over Iceland

My current life/travel obsession is seeing the northern lights. I’ve been gleefully researching where and when I’d have the best chance of seeing them, and although Alaska, Sweden, and Norway all sound amazing, this time lapse video of the northern lights over Iceland this past winter might have just made my decision for me. It&#8217…

I Want To Go To There: Russia’s Upside-Down House

I generally feel pretty “meh” about tourist attractions, unless the tourist attraction in question is an upside-down house that gives you a chance to live like a cartoon character. Turns out just such a house exists in Moscow, and it’s drawing tourists from all over the world who have always longed to jump on the…

I Want To Go To There: Grimm Fairytales Come To Life

Photographer Kilian Schonberger grew up in a wooded area of rural Germany, and was surrounded by the same dark, desolate landscape that had inspired the Brothers Grimm to write their famous fairytales a century earlier. He’s managed to capture images of modern central Europe that look like they were ripped from a dusty tome of…

I Want To Go To There: Tanglewood Farm, A Miniature Animal Petting Zoo

When I found out that Tanglewood Farm, a farm and petting zoo dedicated solely to miniature livestock, existed, I literally squealed with delight. When I found out it was in northern Georgia, which is easily within day trip distance from me, I started hyperventilating. How could I not?! Tanglewood is an entire farm teeming with…

I Want To Go To There: Marina Bay Sands’ Ridiculous Infinity Pool

When I saw a picture of the infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore, it became an instant addition to my travel bucket list. Perched on the roof of the 57-story hotel, the pool offers breathtaking views, luxurious sunbathing, and intensive exposure therapy for anyone who suffers from a simultaneous fear of…

I Want To Go To There: Assateague Island, Where Wild Ponies Sunbathe On The Beach

Well, I’ve just found a new place to add to my travel bucket list: Assateague Island, a gorgeous strip of land located off the coast of Maryland and Virginia. With beautiful white sand beaches, Assateague attracts a fair share of human tourists, but it’s also home to a large herd of wild ponies (I repeat:…
