“Paris/New York” Beautifully Integrates Two Of The World’s Greatest Cities

Paris/NY
Plane Ticket Please!

The Paris vs. New York debate has been (lazily) carrying on for decades, though in my humble opinion they’re too unique in their own ways to compare. This video by Franck Matellini compares the two cities side by side. His work showcases the very different vibes for each city evokes (and if I’m being honest, has me itching to ditch New York for a return to the City of Lights). [TravelPulse]

Life Dream Status: You Can Take Care Of Baby Elephants In Thailand

How’d you like to play with elephants for free? DreamJobbing.com is allowing one lucky wildlife lover to get the dream-come-true chance to spend two weeks assisting with conservation work for endangered Asian Elephants in Thailand. The volunteer will visit elephant camps throughout the country and care for the critters hands-on while working on developing ethical businesses that do elephant tourism. Housing and travel expenses will be paid for — all you’ll have to do is show up! In the past hundred years or so, Thailand’s elephant population dwindled from about 100,000 to 3,000-4,000, so you’ll be doing crucial work to keep the species afloat. Conveniently enough, you’ll get to explore a beautiful, fascinating country while doing so! DreamJobbing is taking applications for the next month. Can I come along as a stowaway?

Airplane

T-Mobile customers now have the option of texting and photo messaging at 35,000 feet on planes equipped with WiFi (which, these days, is most of them). I realize this should logically be a reason to celebrate, especially since T-Mobile’s service seems to be the most insufferable of all phone companies and their customers deserve a treat like this for putting up with it. What I worry about, though, is whether this could be a gateway for things to escalate into the ability to make full-on lengthy phone calls in the air. Some people love the idea of that, but it makes me a nervous wreck. Can you imagine being trapped in a metal tube for several hours with someone who won’t stop loudly yakking away on their iPhone? Besides, what do we really need to text about up in the sky unless, say, our plane got diverted to another city and we wanted to frantically text our aunt to tell her not to start driving to the airport to pick us up? I can’t be the only one who occasionally secretly loves the fact that I’m forced to disconnect for a little while when I’m in the air. The only definite positive of this is that it will open many new doors for creative sexting. [Travel And Leisure] [Image via Shutterstock]
