Rihanna Brings Some Serious Style To The Johannesburg Zoo

Rihanna gets a lot done in a day, regardless of whether or not a proper pair of pants is involved. Her trip to South Africa this week yielded not only a history-making performance as the youngest ever female artist to sell out the Johannesburg stadium, but also — more importantly — plenty of opportunities to pose awesomely alongside animals while hitting the local zoo with her fam. Without further ado, check out Rihanna, dressed to kill, hangin’ out with baby tigers, giraffes, giant crabs, and more … [Instagram]

Travel Porn: 6 Stunning Treehouse Hotels Around The World

Swanky hotel rooms are great and all, but sometimes you just want to sleep in a tree. Whether you’re yearning to reconnect with nature or revisit your childhood, reserving a few nights in a treehouse hotel is guaranteed to give you a memorable vacation. I tracked down 6 gorgeous treehouses in forests from Washington to China to Costa Rica. Some are truly affordable ($87 a night? Yes, please!), some fall squarely in the “if I win the lottery” category (I miiiiight have yelled “FOR SERIOUS?!” during a phone call with a front desk agent at one point in my research), but all are beautiful, unique, and totally travel porn worthy.

Rich People Tire Of Yachts, Move On To Luxury Submarines

Rich People Tire Of Yachts, Move On To Luxury Submarines
Travel In Style!

Newsflash to nobody: crazy-rich people loooooove frivolous shit. After all, there are only so many practical items and experiences you can spend money on before it’s like, hey, bring on the fucking big cat room. (I know, I know, just because that’s what I would do with my extra millions doesn’t mean it applies to everybody.) Combine loads of money with showy aesthetics and that other beloved rich person thing, Travel, and what do you get? Yachts!

But daddy, everybody’s got a yacht … and as of last weekend’s Monaco Yacht Show, there’s something even grander than a humble yacht with which to show off your ridiculous wealths. Bert Houtman, founder and chairman of the Netherlands-based U-Boat Worx, gets it. He says, “There is a change in attitude of super-yacht owners. They’re fed up with drinking white wine and riding jet skis, so they’re looking for another thrill.” And what better thrill than an “underwater plane,” which can be attached beneath your silly old yacht and then taken for a spin up to 1000 meters below the surface? It all sounds impossibly appealing, and yes, impossibly thrilling, and relatively cheap in the $1.5 to $4.2 million range, but isn’t the entire point of a yacht is that lesser humans can look on in class envy? Submersibles, on the other hand, are submerged. Just don’t tell that to the clientele. [Refinery29]

Poor Justin Bieber Needed To Be Carried Up The Great Wall Of China

Justin Bieber gets carried up the Great Wall of China

Did Justin Bieber learn absolutely nothing from his interventional tête-à-tête with Zach Galifianakis last week? Yesterday’s visit to the Great Wall of China was a fantastic opportunity for the ol’ Biebs to score a bit of cultural enlightenment — hell, maybe the experience could even serve to humble the bratty pop star. Alas, in true Bieber form, he couldn’t even go the Great Wall, at one time considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World, alone. Despite owning a perfectly good and functional pair of human legs, Justin opted to instead have his bodyguards and entourage hoist him up onto their shoulders and carry him the length of the wall. He is just so down-to-earth.

Also excellent: the singer and his crew were the cause of a massive security meltdown at the tourist attraction after they saw it fit to go skateboarding around the site, which is obviously Not Allowed and also Frowned Upon. But if there’s one thing Justin Bieber knows, it’s that anything and everything is fair game for Justin Bieber, am I right? [Mirror.co.uk]

I’ve always been a big fan of spontaneous day trips. When I lived in Portland, I loved driving up to Seattle or escaping to the Oregon coast for the day, and now that I live in Nashville, I can hop in the car and explore Chattanooga or Atlanta or just drive until I hit a little town with a diner that serves pie (this doesn’t take long).

I think people often get caught up in the idea that they can’t travel based on limitations on time or money, but a day trip is a great way to explore a new place without breaking the bank or taking time off, and you even get to sleep in your own bed at the end of the day. Need a little more encouragement to hit the road this weekend? Read on… Keep reading »
