It’s Friday again? This week flew by quicker than Amanda Bynes driving down an LA freeway stoned out of her mind and on the way to Baja Fresh. But despite the speed of this week, I was still able to round up my favorite travel blog posts:
Free in NYC: Eva Peron’s Wardrobe // Downtown Traveler
Don’t ask me why, but I know every word to “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.” In fact, my ex-roommate and I used to stand up on our couches and belt it out when we were stressed during finals week (or if we were just bored on a Tuesday). That being said, you can probably understand my excitement over this Eva Peron exhibit in New York and my elation that the whole thing is free. Because isn’t that the way Evita would have wanted her poor descamisados to experience it?
Climbing Grouse Mountain in Vancouver // See My Travels
I’ve recently started a challenge at my yoga studio for which I must complete 30 bikram classes in 30 days. I feel amazing and empowered, but there’s a strange side effect I’ve been beginning to notice: I simply cannot stop thinking about exercise, even when I’m trying to post stories about travel. Luckily there bloggers out there who can incorporate mountain climbing into their travels to entertain my sweatlust (that sounds gross, but you understand).
Utah Olympic Park: Longest Slide in the US // Go Big or Go Home
Utah has never been at the top of my list for must-see states, mostly because I don’t wear magical underwear and am slightly afraid of the people who do. But there are a few good reasons that could make me change my mind, namely the impressive landscape and the fact that longest slide in the United States resides there.
Georgian Yogurt and Coriander Soup // Foodie International
I am a big fan of two food items that many people despise: plain yogurt and cilantro. I had never thought to mix the two into one dish until I saw this post from Foodie International, but apparently the people of Georgia (the country, not the state) are no strangers to the combo. Since I’m an atrocious cook I probably won’t be trying this one at home, so I guess that means I’ll have to make it to Georgia sooner or later.
Discovering Sex in South Korea // Captain & Clark
Need a cheap place to stay in South Korea and all the budget hostels are booked up? Never fear: find the nearest sex motel and book a room. They are cheap, they have porn instead of tacky art on the walls, and there are sex toy vending machines in the lobby. Who needs free wifi when you can get a moderately priced dildo at the front desk?
