The best things to do in Cabo Frio

The turquoise waters and paradise beaches of Brazil’s Região dos Lagos have earned this watery region the nickname Caribe Brasileiro, the Caribbean of Brazil.

Lockdown in Paris: Day 13

It has been a long week, so today’s update will be brief. Unsurprisingly, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe made the official announcement that the confinement will last until April 15th (but, once again, everyone assumes it will be extended through the end of April). Sadly, there are now 1995 Coronavirus deaths in France, including a 16-year-old girl with no prior health issues and a cashier working in a large suburban supermarket just outside Paris.

Take a Virtual Tour of the Paris Catacombs

The Paris Catacombs is “one of those places,” wrote photographer Félix Nadar, “that everyone wants to see and no one wants to see again.” If anyone would know, Nadar would. He spent three months in and out of the underground city of death, with its macabre piles of skulls and crossbones, taking photographs (see here) that would help turn it into an internationally famous tourist attraction. In these days of quarantine, no one can see it; the site is closed until further notice. But if you’re th...

Queer events you can attend online

As the coronavirus pandemic alters daily life, queer events around the world are getting canceled, but there’s one event COVID-19 can’t touch: Couchella.

How to find wilderness areas

In outdoor travel , the word “isolation” is put on a pedestal. “Get away from the crowds,” advertisements say, “and find yourself truly isolated from the chaos of the world.” But then the coronavirus happened, forcing even the hardiest of vagabonds to forget upcoming trips and seclude themselves inside, turning the term into a begrudgingly necessary requirement rather than a goal. We’re advised not to board planes, congregate with groups of friends, or even enter public spaces unless it’s abs...
