Every city has it's own personality. The winding alleyways, crowded streets, tree-lined rivers and bustling markets of each city feel like they're the first of their kind. There's nothing like eating a bagel in New York, sipping tea in Istanbul, watching the road crossings in Tokyo, eating macaroons in Paris, or waiting for a herd of cows to cross the road in Delhi.
Every city is recognizable when photographed from street level - but what about from an aerial view? This collection of fifteen aerial photos give you a completely new and unexpected perspective of the cities we all love. Enjoy exploring, travelers!
Finland has been named the best country in the world for wildlife travel by the True Luxury Travel's Global Wildlife Index 2019. The factors that made it win against it's 106 competitors included its "high levels of environmental sustainability, its unique and varied diversity of species, beautiful natural landscapes, and conservation efforts". Honestly, this is no surprise as Finlandis home to a number of animals that I, the author, have never seen in my life (and would love to see). Besides, 69% of the country is forest and the rest is filled with crystal clear lakes and quaint towns. Sounds pretty ideal to me.
To show you just how diverse Finland's wildlife is, we've included 15 of the coolest animals that call Finland home. If you visit Finland, you're bound to see a few of these creatures. I'd be pretty happy if I saw one, to be honest!
Darby requested via email a free five-night stay for her and her boyfriend at a hotel in Ireland. Instead of paying the hotel, she would give the business "exposure" - the hotel owner was certainly having none of that and replied to her with a snarky email, which he has since published online. He even went on to ban all social media influencers from his places of business.
Do you think the hotel owner's response was fair or did it go too far? Let us know in the comments!
The world has some truly incredible sights, that most of us will not manage to see all of them in our lifetime.

When you think of Iceland, you would imagine it basically looks like it's name sake. But maybe surprisingly for some, It is not the Western European Siberia that many believe it to be. Sure Icelanders are out celebrating summer in 50-60 degree weather, but it is not just one massive ice covered rock. On the contrary, Iceland is literally a frozen chain of volcanoes. Underneath the surface, the high concentration of volcanoes created a huge well of untapped geothermal energy just waiting to be harnessed.
An oil crisis 50 years ago forced the Icelanders to realize that they needed to find an alternative. Today 99.96% of Iceland's energy is from renewable resources, with no other country coming close.
Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes. While any step towards improving mental health is applauded, there have been many incidents involving emotional support animals on airplanes that really don't belong there. We can't blame these untrained animals for acting the way animals act, but we can question the laws that allow them on board. With new regulations from the US Department of Transport, things are about to change. We discuss these changes below, and whether they are for the better or the worse.
At 90 years old, just two days after her husband of 67 years passed away, Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Cancer treatment can be grueling and in Norma's case, it would be risky. According to her son on their Facebook page Driving Miss Norma, her doctor said that in addition to the much lower quality of life she would have had while going through treatment there was no guarantee that she would survive the initial surgery at all.
Instead of going through with treatment she's been lucky enough to hop in an RV and travel with her son and daughter-in-law.
They take her anywhere she wants to go and have been documenting their travels. She's become an inspiration to others who are in the process of making tough choices at the end of life.
