I knew I had to go on a Very Long Trip the day the internet erupted in outrage over Twitter’s decision to shift the shape of its “fav” button from a star to a heart. What started as a fanciful daydream cemented further when I found myself dreading the darkness of winter ... in June. It hardened into stone when I…
A British Airways plane was taken out of service last week after bed bugs were discovered when the crew tried to stuff extra large carry-ons into an overhead compartment.
New York art curator Stacy Engman (who has a very colorful Instagram, for what it’s worth) was issued a summons for assault after allegedly biting a fellow first class passenger on a flight from Istanbul to JFK last summer.

“I am not Catholic,” wrote Jessa Crispin on Saturday at the New York Times, “and yet I find myself drawn to the women saints. There is something about them that I admire. Maybe it is simply the lengths to which they went to avoid marrying.” Same.
Instead of whining about a hotel merger, how about spending some time with your family or volunteer building a house?
“Every time I see a local ripping off a tourist for some ‘authentic’ experience, I think, ‘Who the hell is going to fall for that?’” Dylan, my ex-roommate, remarked a few months ago over breakfast. “And then I think, ‘Oh wait. There’s you.’”
The night before I enter Iran, a sliver of a moon hangs suspended opposite the cloud-shrouded peak of Mount Ararat, barely illuminating the Turkish border town of Dogubeyazit.
Let’s be clear. This Co-Op is intended for razors that ladies use, not for lady razors. It’s a well documented fact that the difference in quality between womyn-marketed shaving accoutrements and their male counterparts is negligible, but that the price difference is seismic.

Look jerks, I love pretty rocks as much as the next entitled millennial, but you’ve got to stop using your Bermuda vacations as excuses to pilfer 70 pounds of sea glass. Last January, Pennsylvania jewelry maker Becky Fox committed this precise transgression, and the Bermuda community is PISSED that such disrespectful…

A woman in a Beijing airport simply had no other choice but to drink a whole bottle of cognac at security check to avoid having to throw away $200. Such is the cost of air travel.
