After hours of idly scrolling through the perfectly symmetrical unblemished butts of Instagram in search of content, the slideshow of World’s Ugliest Dog 2018 contestants revives the spirit and fills the heart with joy.

Ladies who have traveled solo - talk to me! I have 7-10 days in August to fill with something interesting. Have never traveled on my own before -- if I don’t have a travel buddy, I usually try to go visit friends who live in interesting places. Contemplating doing a “real” solo trip. Where have you traveled that you felt safe, didn’t feel super lonely, and had a good mix of exploring/learning and relaxing?
