World's most instagrammed forests

About a third of the world’s landmass is covered in forest. And in addition to providing important stuff like the oxygen we breathe and habitats for wild animals, they also make for some downright jaw-dropping photographs. From the towering redwoods of California to the cloud forests of Costa Rica, the trees covering our planet can be our most beautiful sites when captured correctly. We took a look at Taxi2airport.com’s study of the 15 most-Instagrammed forests in the world and found some of ...

Evelyn Waugh’s “Victorian Blood Book”: A Most Strange & Macabre Illustrated Book

Most U.S. readers come to know Evelyn Waugh as the “serious” writer of the saga Brideshead Revisited (and inspirer of the 1981 miniseries adaptation). This was also the case in 1954, when Charles Rolo wrote in the pages of The Atlantic that the novel “sold many more copies in the United States than all of Waugh’s other books put together.” Yet “among the literary,” Waugh’s name evokes “a singular brand of comic genius… a riotously anarchic cosmos, in which only the outrageous can happen—and whe...

Where There Is Smoke, There Isn’t Always a Claim

Firefighting can be a physically and emotionally demanding job, and one that comes with many risks. One of the greatest risks faced is not even from the fire, but from the health effects of smoke. The leading cause of death for firefighters is heart attacks, which is attributable to about half of all on duty deaths. A 2017 study in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation attributed this to heart strain due to exposure to extreme heat. The authors drew these conclusions after placing...

ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland (CBS Local) — A woman digging out of record-breaking snowfall in Newfoundland, Canada, woke up to a surprise Saturday morning when she went out to her car. With a 30-inches of new snow on the ground in St. John’s, Lola Parsons said she expected to find her car completely covered in snow. But it wasn’t.

Lola Parsons of Newfoundland was dismayed to find that her car was filled with snow after a record-breaking blizzard in the Canadian province.

It’s been one hell of a weekend in eastern Canada.

How to Make Friends and Meet People While Traveling

One of the questions I get asked most often is how I make so many friends while traveling on my own. I travel solo most of the time, and while you think it might be lonely, it’s not. I’m able to meet so many people on my travels. Here’s the truth — I’m not the most social person in the world. I’m an introvert who always has her nose in a book and needs a few days to recover after a party. Most readers who meet me say I’m much quieter than they expected, and making friends isn’t the easiest th...
