The Easiest Way to Escape Paris for the Countryside

We were planning our getaway into the countryside as soon as the first phase of Deconfinement was announced, looking for the best place to escape the city within 100km of Paris.

But getting the details right can be the...

How Iceland Has Dramatically Lowered Rates of Teen Substance Abuse Over the Past 20 Years

One that I think a lot about — weekly at least — is Emma Young’s story for Mosaic about Iceland’s very successful program that’s steered the nation’s teens away from drug and alcohol abuse. At the center of the Icelandic strategy is an insight by psychologist Harvey Milkman about a strategy of replacing substance and other unhealthy addictions with healthier natural highs: At Metropolitan State College of Denver...

Grandmother becomes Queen of the Ocean as her “ice throne” gets swept out to sea while shooting a photo

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

How to Be Less of a Traveling Asshole in 2019

Everyone likes to think that they’re a good traveler. But are you as good as you think you are? Probably not. “How dare you call me an asshole?! I’m one of the good ones!” I mean, we’re all assholes. We all cause damage. There’s no such thing as a perfect traveler or trip. We can all strive to do better.  I often say that the best thing the travel blogging community has done is raise awareness about elephant rides.
