Dinner is served (with a side of dismay)!
When you go to a restaurant, you expect an experience. Whether it be a light appetizer or a decadent dessert, you hope your taste buds will thank you. Aside from the menu, another essential factor to the dining out experience is the atmosphere. And boy, do the restaurants on this list have that—perhaps too much, in fact. Foodies, if you like your entrée more on the extreme side, consider adding one or more of the following, decidedly alarming, eateries to your bucket list.
Longing for a different time? These historical fiction titles can do that for you.
Let’s jump out of this stressful time and into another (probably still stressful, let’s be real) time, shall we? Perhaps you’ve had enough of the current time, and perhaps you’ve even tired of fiction set in the current time. These historical fiction (fiction set in the past) titles will transport you back in time, to things that may or may not have actually happened this way. Some are realer than others, but regardless, the stories are beautifully told and incredibly necessary. Let’s take a journey to the past and forget about the present.
Not all travel-bloggers look like you and me—some hit the trails on all fours.
There are some pets out there living every traveler’s dream and accompanying their owners to all ends of the Earth, from looking out from the tops of mountains to exploring the sea via kayak. These are travel pets, a new genre of blogger in our influencer-driven world. Our favorite furry-bloggers are exploring the world and letting us see it through their eyes one Instagram post at a time. Whether they’re relaxing lakeside or embarking on a day’s long hike, these pets have risen to top travel inspiration. Who knew one could be so jealous of a house cat?
Get in loser, we’re grabbing a bite!
Covid-19 Disclaimer: Make sure to check the status of the states, regions, and establishments in which you’re planning to visit prior to travel. Many regions continue to see high infection rates and deaths, while many states and counties remain under varying stay-at-home orders. Those traveling from areas with high rates of Covid-19 should consider avoiding travel for now in order to reduce spread. I’m not going to say that it makes sense now more than ever to visit a drive-in restaurant because I’m not encouraging you to venture out of the house at the moment, BUT, know that if you are headed out for food and miss the culinary experience of “going out on the town,” one of these establishments will appropriately quell your appetite.
From huge, haunting parades to locals terrifying their fellow villagers, these customs challenge Switzerland’s reputation.
Switzerland has a reputation for being, above all, beautiful. But it’s also known as being somewhat safe. Well, this list of traditions, customs, festivals, and obscure sports challenges that reputation. Many of these rituals are linked to the change of seasons, ancient folklore, or rural history. Some are modern-day myths in-the-making. With a constant mountain backdrop, they cover the length and breadth of this country and would provide a highlight of any trip to the Alps.
