This Chinese village was abandoned and reclaimed by nature. As anyone who has experienced the ridiculous weather we have had in the last two years knows, Mother Nature can be a bitch. Global warming aside, nature is a powerful force to contend with, so its pretty unsurprising that the Chinese village of Houtou Wan was retaken by the wilderness after its abandonment 50 years ago. Originally a fish... More...

This underground Transylvanian amusement park was built into an abandoned salt mine. I don’t know about you, but visiting an amusement park located hundreds of feet underground that I have to take a mining elevator to get to sounds like the perfect recipe for a family vacation. Located in Transylvania (yes, it is a real place), Salina Turda used to be a fully-operational salt mine until 1932, when... More...

Banksy opens an art exhibit inspired by dystopian consumerism, or something. If you are tired of the typical theme park experience of seething with frustration while waiting in line, paying exorbitant amounts of money for a hot dog, and dealing with hundreds of screaming kids with sticky faces, you should probably visit Dismaland, a new art exhibited headed up by none other than the elusive Banksy, hims...

This giant prayer house in the Indonesian jungle is shaped like a chicken. I have seen a lot of churches in my day, but never actually worshipped in one. Maybe it’s because nobody has created a church for the god that I worship yet; The Church of Browsing The Internet. I know for a fact though, that most churches aren’t shaped like poultry. Created by an eccentric man named Daniel Alamsjah, the ... More...

Every year in the summer, Japan’s Toyama Bay is lit up with blue firefly squid. I have seen bioluminescence before at a particularly disgusting beach in Long Island. Unfortunately the water was so gross I barely dipped a hand in to play with it, but I can tell you that bioluminescent bays are definitely something everyone should experience in their lives, especially when firefly squid are involved. Every year... More...

I recently stayed at the Hyatt Aruba and loved it. Here’s a recap of my experience. There’s a certain level of stress and bleh (bleh is the official, scientific term) that comes with calling NYC home for more than a few months. The sights, smells, and sounds all up in your soul after a while and at some point you just need to escape. That’s part of why New Yorkers are always skip... More...
