18 Easy Steps for Planning Your Next Trip

Updated: 02/24/20 | February 24th, 2020 I remember when I started planning my first trip around the world. I had no idea what I was doing. When I decided to quit my job and travel the world, I walked into a bookstore and bought Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia on Shoestring. Buying that guidebook was my first step toward long-term travel. It made the trip seem more real, more tangilbe. It made it all seem possible. While helpful, the book didn’t exactly prepare me for planning a trip around the ...

Where to see rocket launches 2020

Rocket launches aren’t just for Florida anymore. Noting that the second-most-popular tourist attraction in Central Florida is the massive Kennedy Space Center, the rest of America — and the world – has begun developing tourism around the awe-inspiring experience of watching a rocket shoot into space. And many of them are in places worth visiting for more than just the launch. Though our American launch pads are easily the most accessible, if you were planning a trip to South America, Japan, o...

Strange sex laws around the world

Sex is becoming less of a taboo topic here in the US. But while many of us are enjoying the liberation that comes with being able to express their sexuality, there are still many regulations around the world where something as innocent as sharing a kiss with your other half could land you in hot water. From illegal erotic music to jail time for doing the deed on a motorbike, the laws around the world are as varied as sex itself. Some rules are recent and in full force, whereas others are rel...

toni morrison on good and evil in literature

Graphic viaStudents Exploring Inequality in Canada For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by stories of forgiveness and redemption. I believe endlessly in the human capacity for redemption, and that belief that has only been strengthened as I've seen more of the world.The stories that interest me the most are when people who suffer loss do not seek vengeance.I first came upon this idea in the book Dead Man Walking, the 1994 book by Sister Helen Prejean.

laundromats, underground libraries, and criminal charges: a library link round-up

Thanks to everyone who ever sent me one of these.* * * * *Librarians in laundromats! Community librarians are all about taking literacy to the people. In library jargon, we're trying to reach the non-users. If that sounds a bit drug-dealer-ish, it's not a bad analogy: come get a taste, then come back for more.The puns jus...

The world’s newest countries

Much like human beings , the lives of countries take dramatically different shapes. Some lifespans are fraught with bloodshed, revolution, and unrest while others are lucky enough to enjoy peace and long periods of stability. Also like humans, new countries are born amid great fanfare, die when they can no longer sustain themselves, and sometimes even merge with each other to form a union. Whether formed through violent revolution, triumphant political autonomy, or the dissolution of a larger ...
